As of January 18, my parliamentary consulting business, formerly known as Dan Lynch, Professional Registered Parliamentarian, is now called Raplyn Consulting. This represents the third major change to the business in the last three months. First, on October 20, after resigning from my day job, I began working full-time rather than part-time in the profession. And second, on November 1, I relocated the business from Waterloo to Toronto, in order to be closer to my current and potential clients.
This new business name and location represent, in every respect, a smooth continuation of my business, which remains organized as a sole proprietorship under the same owner and management. Existing and prospective clients can rest assured that they will experience the same standard of professional excellence under the Raplyn Consulting brand as they have come to expect from Dan Lynch, PRP. Additionally, client service is more responsive as I no longer need to balance the needs of my business clients with those of my former full-time employer.
A new business name of course requires a new logo and new branding practices, and those are in the process of being implemented on my website and stationery. Also, the textual copy on the website is being updated to reflect the proper voice. The blog, however, will continue to be written in the first person, as it represents the voice of the individual author of each post and not the business as such. The first edition of the long-promised monthly newsletter will be published in early February, with each subsequent edition normally containing a selection of the more interesting blog posts from the preceding month.
I hope that you, my clients, potential clients, colleagues, friends, and family, will benefit from this new arrangement, and will support me in my goal of improving the practice of parliamentary procedure in Toronto, in Ontario, in Canada, and throughout the world—one organization at a time. I look forward to hearing from you.
