What some of our clients are saying:

Maria Phillips

COO, SIXNET

“Bobbie is a creative and personable strategic consultant who knows how to structure a project for the best results. Bobbie is able to obtain valuable input from every level of the organization and to make even the most shy people participate vocally. Although Bobbie knows the answer, she skillfully guides her clients to come up with their own answer. She is an excellent facilitator. Bobbie knows how businesses should run and is keenly astute at recognizing executive talent. I would absolutely hire her again.”

Andrea Adair

Senior Account Executive at Gartner

“When I began working with Bobbie, my goal was to gain insights into my work life and avocations. At the outset, the two felt uncomfortably disparate. Through Bobbie’s expertise, I was able to gain a greater understanding of the kinds of interactions and activities most satisfying to me. These kinds of communications are available in many areas of my daily life. Keeping these types of activities at the forefront of my attention have created new integrations and alignments I would not have expected. Bobbie’s mentoring, through an open ended investigation, allowed this process to naturally unfold. The end result of discovering these self truths, with Bobbie’s insightful coaching, has been a turning point as I approach my own next steps with open hands.”

Mark Onisk

General Manager and Vice President, Books24x7 at Skillsoft

“Bobbie was contracted as our executive development coach during 2006-2007. I found her coaching approaches and group facilitation to be particularly effective in helping me develop as a leader and executive. Bobbie developed strong relationships with everyone on our team and prescribed thought-provoking activities that helped the group come together and allowed us all to develop as leaders. Her 1:1 coaching sessions were particularly helpful. I would personally recommend Bobbie for similar professional development initiatives.”

Chris Knight

Director of Marketing, Lightower

“Bobbie is a great leader and is fun to work with. She knows what the goals are and in our engagement with her, she led the team there but made sure that the team arrived at the destination in their own, unique way. Bobbie is an excellent facilitator and knows how to get the best from the people she works with. I would highly recommend Bobbie for a consulting or leadership role.”
