  1. A business advisor, mentor, Ned has tremendous listening skills and can offer advice and counsel in an incredibly productive manner. Ned knows how to ‘push’ in a way that induces personal and business growth - he is never satisfied with the status quo, and can cut through all of the nonsense to get to the root issues. He has a wonderful disposition and approach to life, and it can't help but rub off on his clients and friends.

  2. The list of Ned’s leadership responsibilities, accomplishments, contributions and competencies is long. It is enough to say, in my eyes, he’s a great man! Ned worked collaboratively to develop the strategy for our consulting practice and other departments. He provided very effective leadership for our business development team, brilliantly led all thought leadership efforts, coached and turned around underperformers, trained in business development, developed curriculum, and constantly pushed us to cross-sell. Ned is a leader and a trainer of leaders. Ned can help you!

  3. I have worked with Ned for about four years. He is most of all honest, and tells it like it is. Recently I asked him to evaluate a business opportunity. He uncovered questions that the engineers did not even know to ask, found THE expert in the field to advise me, evaluated the marketability of the various possible end products, created several pro forma scenarios, and with that knowledge we decided to wait for the engineers to solve the issues Ned uncovered before investing in the technology. He is working on another innovative project for me; one in which he has created a new way of approaching an old industry. When I have a problem or opportunity to work through, I call on Ned to help me make the right decision. Ned can help you as well.

  4. I have worked with Ned for four years. He has a unique ability to see creative solutions and possibilities where others do not. He has helped me develop a new retail real estate development strategy in the face of a difficult and ever-changing industry. We continue to work together on several creative concepts and ventures. He is a valued partner and I recommend him to anyone who is faced with challenges, changes to the business landscape, or who may be looking for new ways to generate revenues and profits in their industry. Ned has helped me and can help you.
