“2 words - TOTAL PACKAGE!!! I had been witness to Kon's skills as an audience observer - so when I became a Vice President and needed to finalize our team strategy as well as strengthen our leadership and organizational development, having Kon lead our offsite team effort proved very rewarding. Kon is the go to person. He is a proven leader in organization and leadership development. Highly experienced, detail oriented, very personable, and adept at coming up with unique solutions/recommendations for your business challenge.”

“Kon is a very professional and sophisticated analyst and trainer. He and his team were tasked with integrating a new Back Office Administration system for our 100+ company-owned restaurants.

        Gretchen Miller Paules, Vice President of Marketing, ROCK BOTTOM RESTAURANTS, INC
 

“Kon has been a valuable asset to the organization as he is adept in using both his analytical and people skills. He has proven to be very capable at managing projects, leading teams, and facilitating change. During the company’s largest program deployment, his commitment, discipline, organization skills, and systems thinking contributed greatly to the successful execution of the plan. His ability to adapt his communication style and relate to the different levels of stakeholders helped others embrace the new functionality and overall changes.

Since then, Kon has taken over this same program and managed to deliver consistent, reliable, and meaningful results to support our business intelligence, with only a few resources, a small team, and a positive attitude.
