Judi’s insights are invaluable. She understands what it takes for a business to succeed. In just eight months, she helped us design and implement a new product development process. More than anything, Judi’s ability to understand –and help us understand—how to manage significant change quickly allowed us to move faster than anyone imagined. Today our people behave differently. You won’t find many consultants as talented or committed as Judi.
Patrick C. Sommers, President
Gale Cengage Learning
We knew what we needed to do but Judi knew how to get the organization behind it. She is a great leader who understands people. When you are trying to implement a strategy, you need to think about the people. How do you get buy-in—I mean for real, so that everyone is one the same page? Trust her instincts, she can show you the way.
John B. McCoy, Retired Chairman and CEO
Judi has the same credentials, experience, and capabilities of the best partners from the big strategy consulting firms. But working with Judi is different. She customizes her approach to your situation, so you get exactly what you need, no more no less. And she is hands-on throughout the assignment working directly with the management team and others. Instead of a team of smart but inexperienced analysts with an occasional "cameo appearance" by a senior partner, you get a real pro by your side the whole way.

We loved working with Judi and her team. The work was outstanding and we got just what we were looking for. They asked the right questions to understand our business, and then taught us to ask the right questions to understand our customers’ businesses. Throughout the process, she kept us focused on the task at hand so we could make decisions and move forward. It was particularly refreshing to find a consultant who was more interested in helping us solve the problem at hand than selling us the next assignment.
Paul Brown, Vice President, Institutional Market Segment
The Principal Financial Group
Judi and her team helped us sort out the facts--the "Truth About Today' in a cogent and straightforward way that laid out the path to changing our strategy. Better than anyone I have ever observed, she skillfully facilitated a large group of decision makers with diverse opinions over a multi-day off-site to get to conclusions that were more than consensus--it was enthusiastic alignment.
Rich McClure, President
It is critical to work with people who know how to deliver content and think of the details before you do. I have enjoyed working with Barbara McGill who exemplifies these skills. We worked together over two years, providing multiple successful workshops for Business Acumen (including financial skills) to HR executives at a Fortune 100 financial institution. Barbara managed the creative and delivery team of this multi-million dollar engagement.
Blythe McGarvie, President
Barbara is not afraid to step up and have the difficult conversations that are critical for complex programs to be successful in an enterprise or cross-enterprise environment. I strongly recommend her.
