Ian helped us tremendously in bringing our
culture into alignment with our
strategic plan. He worked
closely with my Executive Management Committee
teambuilding and how to align their leadership skills with the
of the company. I’ve personally found
Ian’s casual, warm and entertaining style overwhelmingly
successful. I recommend him highly to other companies
looking for someone who can build strong leadership and teamwork
in an organization. George A. Foegele, President & CEO, Transamerica
I was looking for a professional to help my
group become a high-performing ‘out
of the box’ executive team. Ian brings home the truth that there
is no organizational transformation until there is serious personal

J. Ferguson, Promus Hotel Corporation
You held an entire room of 1,200 Association
leaders totally captivated! That is a rare gift indeed.”
Laura Missitzis, National Association of Realtors
Our times call not for the kind of leadership
based on scientific formula, but for leadership that demonstrates
a power of spirit.
Something that comes from the gut, the heart. It is intuitive leadership,
as Ian suggests, that tells you how and when to seize the opportunity. It’s opportunity that
gives the power.
Jon Madonna, former Vice Chair, Travelers Group and
Chairman KPMG International

themselves with the people. Most fly in, talk, fly out. Your are
very special and our members really appreciated your wisdom.

teaching and coaching you led us through an exploration of what it means
to participate in life. Not only did you help shock us into a new awareness,
you did it with laughter, love and insight.
Kay Lowries, Director of Marketing, Royal Trust
Ian’s challenge to (the Board of Directors)
was to remember that out beyond
success, either personal or business,
is being meaningful and significant to others. That workshop probably
stimulated more comment and more positive response
than any other
we have had in recent years. I’ve found myself wishing I
had kept count of the remarks made to me following his presentation,
confirming he had succeeded in touching us at a truly genuine level.
C. T. Fredrickson, former President and CEO, AgriBank

hand. Obviously your message hit home.
