What our clients say about working with us
"We all have room for improvement no matter where we are in business or in life. FBI has been a great help to us, and it was eye opening where we needed to improve! If more contractors could just get a taste of the peer group/roundtable atmosphere, they would be hooked. Our peer group meetings are one of the most valuable times spent during the year. The ideas generated in each meeting are mind boggling, and they propel us to that next level. If someone ever says anything negative about a peer group, they are not putting in the time to yield the proper results."Kent Bounds
"Everyone who was involved in our process felt the outcome exceeded what they had hoped to accomplish and will provide our company very clear direction. The result has been an aggressive plan (not too so) for continued growth of revenue as well as gross margin and alignment of all us on how we’ll get there. Everyone credits Dennis for being able to lead us there."Kent Pilcher
