Operations Manager, Allendorph Specialties INC.

Allendorph Specialities reported a 48% increase in sales and a 54% profit increase in the 1st year of working with me.

Betsy's facilitation of our quarterly meetings has proven to be a game changer. 

It brings our 4 locations together to solve issues that maybe would have gone unnoticed. It helps with accountability and tracking. 

This time together develops our trust in each other and thus develops our relationships. 

We know each other better and there is more openness among us. Betsy keeps us on the same page and everyone knows the focus and the future plans.
