“There are many people in the service industry, but what separates Guy is his experiences working within a CPA firm. I’ve recommended Guy to many other firms. Firms that emphasize the skills Guy teaches, differentiate themselves. That’s the bottom line and an important issue. Guy not only comes with a program but has lived it, practiced it, and can speak from experience. He will make individuals and firms stretch to make them better individually and collectively,”

“Guy understands the opportunities and problems in an organization and is able to be involved in the decision making and problem solving steps. It is a tremendous asset for Guy to have the experience of working inside a firm. I would definitely recommend Guy to others. He has a really good understanding of what makes people tick. His educational background in counseling prior to coaching is a strong asset that mixes well with his firm experiences,”
