To have a significant, positive impact on people development in every organization we serve.


We focus on results and delivering with integrity. We constantly seek ways to help our clients. This may be to plan future talent needs, help build a new team, raise team performance, coach an executive or team to higher performance or lead through transition.

Day-to-day it could be simply to listen to a problem, provide an introduction or facilitate information exchange. Many of our relationships have been developed over the past 10-15 years and much of our work comes via referral.


Strategic Talent Management, Team Building & Performance, Executive/Team Coaching, Organizational Change.


Like many of our clients we are actively engaged in the community. A particular focus is youth development: coaching youth soccer to help young athletes build confidence and life skills; educating students about careers, the workforce and entrepreneurship through the Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation; and by offering support in public speaking to youth and community leaders, including through Toastmasters.


We build relationships and partner with other boutique talent management firms as well as executive search companies. This includes alliances with firms in New York and London.

We look forward to meeting you!
