It’s been very successful. Students would sign up just to take a class with him.  With Paul, we’ve been able to recognize the importance for our individual clients of getting together and networking. We now hold ongoing networking meetings that include an orientation, a local business owner presentation and networking.

Business owner


Paul listened extremely well to my needs, crafted a program that took advantage of his experience, but targeted to my needs. He was fun to work with, which elevates the energy level and creates connection. 



I had problems with infrastructure, roles, resources.  We were using archaic systems, unsupported by software.  I had never been an executive director before.  [Paul] helped us find inexpensive resources for software.  He helped me understand group dynamics, power, strategic alliances.  He’s played an instrumental role in who I’ve become as Executive Director.
