What our clients say about working with us
"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
"Just finished our best year ever. Revenue up about 20%, profit up about 60%. Went through an extremely extensive third party audit just a few weeks ago, the highest level of most respected audit company in our industry. I was kicked out during the process (by the employees) as well as my son. I was amazed to find we scored 100%. We are far from perfect, however the auditor spent a lot of time on the floor talking to almost every employee and thought we were special. This would not have happened if we had not contacted the Family Business Institute and had them come in to work with us, and we listened. Thank you Wayne and your organization."RJ Reed
