What our clients say about working with us

“Wayne Rivers provides a very practical approach to family business planning. Through his step-by-step strategic planning process, our members walked away with tools and techniques they could immediately put into use in their families and businesses. Drawing on his own experience as a business owner, and witty sense of humor, Wayne presented our attendees with great insight, transferable ideas, and several valuable resources.”

Nicole Bettinger

Operations Manager, University of Wisconsin

“Brexton volunteered to host the first [AGC PRO] meeting in October 2015 after several months of data collecting and benchmarking. In early December 2015 we had a follow up strategic planning session with FBI’s John Mayes and the results were phenomenal for my team and myself. The entire FBI staff have been incredibly responsive and exhibits professional excellence in all aspects of their service.”
