What Others Have To Say
"Kevin was chosen in 2021 as the consultant responsible for crafting our 3-year strategic plan for the time period of 2022-2024. Kevin was organized in his approach and excellent in gathering feedback. This was done in a manner that is different than we have had in the past by using a “bottom-up” approach. This included gathering feedback and concerns through focus groups of employees from all levels of the organization. Other areas of strength that Kevin brought to the process was his follow up after feedback was received and facilitating effective conversations with the strategic planning team as we developed our plan."

They guided us through a very complex set of circumstances, including a board with divided opinions and frustrated external constituent groups, to a solution that that was ultimately unanimously approved by the board.
Trust, flexibility, and competence are the three traits that best describe what we were provided. I grew to fully trust that ITCB would always follow through in a timely manner with what was promised, and that Kevin would give me updates and sometimes hard truths allowing me to provide input and for us to pivot when needed. These pivots required their flexibility as the scope of work changed requiring ITCB to take on assignments they had not originally intended. They personified servant leaders in this context and always were willing to do what we deemed best for our organization.
