“Greg and I created a Training and Development business together that we grew on the average of 41% per year for 12 years! Our work spanned nationally across diverse industries and clientele.  Greg and I worked extensively together in program development, co-facilitation and reinforcement of hundreds of training programs for top line executives to front line employees.

Greg is a creative genius and an expert at assisting people and organizations to activate their greatest potential.  No matter what endeavor he is involved in, you can count on Greg to always go above and beyond his client’s expectations.  He is passionate about his work and his enthusiasm is contagious!”

Kim Zoller

“Over the last decade, I have had the privilege of collaborating with Greg and his associates on numerous projects including a multi-million dollar customer service initiative. Greg has the uncanny ability to sort through the “clutter” and get rapidly to the heart of the matter. Our professional and personal work together over the last 9 years helped me repeatedly get past the distractions, limitations, and roadblocks while keeping me focused on the things I need to do today to reach my finish line. Greg and his team helped me keep my steps moving in the right direction!”
