Recent Success Stories
Worked with the management of a technology company to define and execute legal compliance goals including creating equal employment opportunity policies that successfully avoided an alleged discrimination suit and drafted employment contracts that included employee self-reporting performance review and suggestion mechanisms that increased employee efficiency and efficient allocation of company resources.

Counseled management of a fledgling international tourism start-up to re-define the theory of the business with emphasis on how to define results based on core-competencies.
