What Our Clients Have to Say

“Anna was focused on not just whether or not the trains were running on time, but if we had the right schedule. Her work went beyond dealing with the immediate issue at hand and included exploring if an issue was symptomatic of a system that needed to be improved.”
- Brad B.
“Anna brought things that we never thought of – templates and tools – that we still use today. For example, she shared a template for a meeting structure that we still use. These tools seem little, but they have a huge impact.”
- Julie D.
“Anna is not afraid to grapple with difficulty, be wrong, or change her mind. She’s open to being influenced by others. Good leaders are willing to be changed by new information.”
- Liesl S.
“Anna has good sense of organizations, what they are about, what their cultures are like. She can be decisive. Yet, rather than making a lot of changes that may or may not have stuck, she took the time to make sure the actions she took synced with the organization.”
- Winnie S.
“Anna is more than capable. From the beginning, I was amazed that she could become an integral part of the management team so quickly and steady the organization through a tumultuous time.”
- David L.
