"John really understands the process of planning a successful meeting, particularly, when difficult issues need to be addressed. He is used to working with executives as well as volunteers with very little organizational experience. He has a talent for getting an unmanageable group to come to a decision."     Liz Heiman Zagorodney,  RJ Consulting / Kailua-Kona, HI

Project Management
"Thanks again for John’s leadership on the project.  When the two companies were asked to come together for the meeting, I was certain that nothing positive could come of it.  I was proven wrong.  Day 2 produced results and collaboration like I have never before experienced on a team. As always, John has done a first rate job."   Project Manager, General Electric / UK
