Chief Human Resources Officer, Grizzard Communications Group

“Charles and Andrea cut to the chase on trust—the one thing you can’t lead without. They have provided us with a hands-on, state-of-the-art look at building trust, which is the essential component for becoming valued leaders to our teams and true business partners with our clients.”

Managing Partner, Accenture

“Everyone talks about being a ‘trusted advisor,’ but few people have real science behind it. Green and Howe have got experience, data, and perspective; they don’t shy from the really difficult tasks in client relationships. We have found them to bring practical, tactical expertise to the ideas already developed in The Trusted Advisor and Trust-Based Selling.”

The MITRE Corporation

“Andrea, it was really a pleasure having you speak at our conference. Of all the speakers we had that day, more than 10, you clearly generated the most ‘buzz’ ! I got several compliments for having you there on the day and again during an All Hands meeting the next day. People were touched by your message and effective delivery. Even before the conference was ended, a number of the follow on speakers made impromptu references to the issues and message you so ably presented in the early afternoon”

The Mind Farm

“Andrea recently presented to a group of Mind Farm independent consultants on the topic of becoming a trusted advisor to your clients. In a short period of time and with a great deal of interactivity and energy, Andrea was able to give all in attendance a clearer view of how they could improve their own client relationships and takeaways that could be implemented immediately”
