Random Testimonial:

“Stewart thinks on a higher strategic plane than anyone I've ever met, yet he has the uncanny ability to share his perspective in ways that make a huge positive difference for his clients. Many times I have seen him name the true issue at hand, and then let others in the room discover that they know the way to the solution. In this way he is able to translate strategy into real traction, for individuals and entire organizations -- and that is a tremendously valuable attribute. Do not hestitate if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Stewart, because he's usually booked full.” June 27, 2008
