Ruston State Bank:

“I was very pleased with our planning retreat. You did an excellent job in keeping us organized and on point and the results were gratifying. Gratifying mostly because a consensus was reached on all decisions....very important to management! The 5 dynamics played a material role because of the insight provided into everyone's comments and suggestions. I hope you'll use us as a reference.”

Community Trust Bank:

"Community Trust Bank recently engaged the services of Karen Gordon and Marilyn Bushey for our Strategic Planning retreat. Finding great presenters with the talent to entertain while providing an informative presentation is a rarity. They definitely succeeded in communicating difficult information in an interesting manner."
