Our product is very complex. It is an infrastructure B2B product and I've always had a hard time communicating what we do to the external layman. Connie's superpower is empathizing with people and helping them understand the story on their own terms. Our story both internally and externally has been lifted by Connie's involvement.
CEO, OMG Network
Eric facilitated a strategic vision session for me at Google and did a phenomenal job. He strikes the appropriate balance of being an objective neutral observer - but, at the same time aiding in pushing the discussion forward. He took the time to prep in advance of the workshop to really familiarize himself with the specifics of our particular domain and so, he could really guide the session at a tactical level as well.
Sr. Director, Engineering, Google
Connie was instrumental in helping our company ‘grow up.' The workshop she facilitated for our team was painstakingly planned and well executed, and infused with energy and humor throughout. We would unhesitatingly work with Connie again, and I would highly recommend her services. Her ability to combine both the ‘poetry’ and ‘prose’ in articulating one’s brand is truly unique.
Eric is a true free-thinker. Creative, but with the chops to implement his innovative ideas. I frequently sought out Eric's opinions and ideas when faced with opportunities to innovate in the mobile space and found him to be an exceptional thought leader.
