What our clients say about working with us
"The process with the Family Business Institute has been wonderful. Mike Lyons knows how to get the most out of us and is bringing out the best we have to offer. It’s been great to get things out in the open, set goals, and have plans. Mike’s insight into people is his greatest strength; he knows how to read people and respond appropriately."Paula Rosen
"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
