Having a business specialist from Practice Design join our board as an advisor, is adding value to our business.
"When I first met John Wenzel I wasn't really looking to employ a business consultant. Our firm, Brown Falconer, was doing well in a very tight market place and we didn't want to burden the firm with additional expenses."
"After a couple of talks with John over a cup of coffee, I started to appreciate that his general understanding of small business and in particular, his extensive knowledge of business as it relates to the architectural profession, might well be worth tapping into."
"I introduced John to my fellow directors and we asked him initially to review some of our business documentation and activities and then prepare a presentation for our annual directors strategic retreat in May 2012."
"We then asked John to become involved with the firm as a board advisor which involved no more than attendance at our monthly board meetings and the occasional meeting outside of that to discuss specific issues. This is adding value to the business, and is a cost effective option.”
“One of our strategic goals has been to focus on our culture with clear definition and internal communication. John suggested we talk to another member of the Practice Design team who has a wealth of experience in these areas."
"Mark and John have been valuable facilitators to our definition and focus on embedding our own core values into our work and our practice. Their input has significantly progressed our ability to share with our clients and our team who we are and why that is of value."
