"It would be hard to overstate how clarifying and productive the process of working with Brian has been. We began with an overall company assessment that gave us amazing insight into our performance and culture. Working from those insights we drilled down and identified which components of our strategy and our business were working and which ones were not. Now we measure performance effectively and know where to make changes when we fall short. Most importantly, the senior team and the staff feel much more in control! We are not only seeing a significant impact on our bottom line but we're being approached by eager, credible buyers - which was always our goal."
