What they say about us . . .
"Steve, Ken and Kathy are probably the most experienced and expert healthcare strategists in the country. They've each been involved in senior positions at major hospital systems, medical centers and physician associations and their combined experience cuts across all facets of organizational strategy, from marketing to public affairs to physician relations and more. Having them available in one consultancy offers a brain trust like no other. In my experience working with them, they are skilled at translating environmental forces into organizational impact, at listening and tailoring all of their counsel to the specific needs of their clients, and their recommendations are right on target and based on reality, not theory. They are totally real world and their ideas can actually be implemented in ways that have a direct impact on the organization."

"Steve was widely recognized at the AMA and throughout organized medicine as a strategic thinker. He has always had a well-deserved reputation as a person who gets things done, working alone or as part of a team. The breadth of his responsibility at the AMA required that he was knowledgeable about communications in the broadest sense of the word. He has an intuitive grasp of marketing, public relations and leadership, and provided sound counsel on any challenges the AMA faced."

"It's been a pleasure working with Ken on health care policy issues. His leadership and dedication to bringing the first federally qualified health center to outer Wayne County were exemplary and our citizens are fortunate to have had such a committed health care professional."
