I have worked with Brian and his partner Gerry Sexton while representing two non-profits – the American Lung Association of the Atlantic Coast and AARP Virginia. In both cases they brought my level of achievement to new heights. We brought together a wide range of leaders to assess public health problems and commit to solutions. Brian and Gerry are skilled at designing and facilitating a process to meet the outcomes you are looking for. With their genius and my vision we did great things together. I will hire them again!
