What Clients Are Saying
I have built a very successful business distributing my products into the speciality channel and I needed to expand distribution to mass market retailers. I thought my session with Rick Bragdon would help me create a new mass market name/brand. I left my session with a mass market strategy!
—Owner/President, Creature Comforts
Rick Bragdon put us on the right path for renaming our digital advertising agency. First, Rick showed us the method and the recipe for name brainstorming. He took the time to help us understand the process, and get in the right frame of mind. Then he showed us specific tools we can use to find synonyms and to create new word combinations. Lastly, he brainstormed with us, during the session and after the session, and came up with some interesting names to riff off of. Based on our phone session and the post-session write-up, I’d highly recommend Rick.
—Managing Director, CPC Search
I manage a very large and diverse organization with teams in 22 locations on 4 continents; this requires unique approaches to understanding, managing and motivating a very creative, complex and distributed organization. My session with Edie Goldberg gave me 3 new ideas on how to better align my management strategy with our overall business goals to drive more effective results from my teams.
—COO, EA Labels, Electronic Arts
TrustedPeer made it easy to get expert advice in a timely manner. The Discovery Questions before the session helped me to focus on the issue in advance of our session. Finally, the Summary Report from my expert, Melissa Hoglund, provided me with the clarity I needed to move forward. I will certainly consult with TrustedPeer again.

I found the TrustedPeer process to be straightforward, and the results were surprisingly good. It's a great thing to rapidly get access to a TrustedPeer professional positioned to answer specific questions about my business issue - and on my schedule. Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations. I'll be scheduling another session on a different topic soon. I'd definitely recommend TrustedPeer as a powerful avenue in developing insights for business leadership.
Mark Lowenstein is a great expert in my industry. His experience and our TrustedPeer Expert session with him exceeded my expectations. I would not have access to Mark and his knowledge without TrustedPeer.
I have spent my professional life in insurance and pride myself in knowing the details of my business. My session with Vicki Landon expanded my understanding of regulatory trends to better strategically plan my business.

Like most companies, my company is going through some important changes and I needed to know how those changes affect our board governance. James Tompkins was the perfect expert to address my issues. I felt completely secure about discussing my expertise need.
—Member of the Board, Crane & Co. Inc.
I was looking at two options for new larger office space, which presented some complex business issues. Denis Mehigan helped me identify the critical issues and provided me with the tools to arrive at the optimal solution. He was easy to talk to, quick on the uptake, and is clearly an expert in his field. His follow-up exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with, and I would not hesitate to utilize his services again.
Pete Agur was a real expert who really knew the issues. Moreover, the TrustedPeer service provided an expertise to which I did not have access in my own contact universe. I could try to quantify the economic benefit of our session, but it would be substantial, given the potential liability that I am now able to avoid.
Outstanding experience. Bob Potter immediately became a trusted peer for us. Masterful job of challenging our assumptions and mitigating confirmation bias. Bob was exceedingly knowledgeable of our challenges while also skilled enough to work us through the Socratic process!
I felt this session was on target and the solutions we discussed are real candidates. We are only one discussion away from recommending a winning plan. John Carter was articulate, knowledgeable, experienced, and concise. Very helpful!
—CTO, Siemens Smart Grid Software
In my 30 minute session with Geoff McDonald we discussed several pitfalls for embedding Purpose into my organization. He pointed out a couple I was not aware of and that will change some of our direction in important ways. I plan to meet with Geoff again in person to discuss further. I now have a “go-to” person in this area.
—Chief Human Resources Officer, Docusign
Our expert, Edie Goldberg, was able to get our team quickly focused on the root cause of a very complex problem. Her insightful questions resulted in us reconsidering a number of our long standing assumptions which has opened the possibility of approaching the issue from a number of new angles. The session reenergized our team and gave us a some excellent ideas to move forward.
