"Our team, at Go2 Productions, invited Eileen to help us with our strategic planning session in January 2020. I can honestly say that during the full day session, Eileen was professional and very detailed. Every member of our team was fully engaged and empowered to be part of developing our company values, company vision and mission.

As a result, our entire team is now 100% aligned and on board with where we want to take the company over the next five to ten years. The business tools and qualifying exercises Eileen shared with us during the session, have now become part of our standard practices when considering new projects and R&D developments. I highly recommend her services."

Adrian Scott | President & Executive Creative Director

"I engaged Eileen to help expedite the efficacy of a change management initiative recently. In her facilitation of our team alignment, her skills and expertise were distinctly effective, intuition brilliantly spot on, and energy humbly infectious. In a time normalized with fear, doubt, and anxiety, she swiftly brought the team into a formation of confidence, collaboration, and enthusiasm under a compelling, purpose-driven vision. This serves as a solid framework from which we efficiently foster clear decision-making, natural accountability, and effective communication. ​

Eileen's high success rate to help businesses achieve growth displays her depth of understanding that at the heart of every thriving business is a thriving team. Her expertise, customized tools, along with her genuine care for people, will take your team to summit new heights."

"Eileen elevated the leadership capacities of our team and helped them build sustainable frameworks to support the rapid growth that we were experiencing. She facilitated the creation of systems and structure, and she ensured that the right people were in the right roles within the team. She fostered an empowering environment aligned around a common vision, and she encouraged focus amidst regular distractions. Thanks to Eileen, results have been measurable and our business is operating at a whole new level now."

Tammy Leach | Executive Director

"Eileen led WiderFunnel’s team through our first team Growth Summit, where we solidified our Values, Vision and Mission. Her guidance and instruction through the process was exactly what we needed to get an amazing result. She quickly detected and matched our culture and corralled a bunch of strong people to a shared understanding. Our new Vision statement still gives me tingles. The day overshot my expectations and we couldn’t have done it without Eileen’s help."

"Eileen facilitated a strategic planning session where we identified our top priorities. These now serve as a foundation to guide discussions, meetings, and decisions. I find myself constantly referring to them, which has helped me work more efficiently and with greater intent. The clarity we now have was a collaborative effort involving our entire team. Eileen's effective leadership skills, professionalism, and ability to focus on the big picture has brought incredible value to VIMFF and I look forward to working with her in the future."

"Eileen's consulting has been invaluable! In addition to addressing all the issues that I came to her with, her analysis of my operations revealed problems that I wasn’t even aware of. I now have precise policies, a defined billing and marketing cycle, and efficient standard operating procedures. Eileen enabled me to handle budgeting and projections beyond my expectations. I feel immeasurably more confident, and I would recommend her services to any business owner."
