As a management consultant (formerly with McKinsey), I created a diverse problem-solving and international community, Collaborating Minds, I turned to Randy to help facilitate greater user participation and involvement.

debra rimmer, MSW, LCSW
Sole Proprietor, CompassionWise, Ottawa
As a clinical social worker with experience in mental health and trauma for adults and children, I launched a series of Compassion Fatigue seminars and workshops. I turned to Randy to help with the learning design, presentation and design of handouts, resources and the CompassionWise website. It greatly reduced my stress(!), and I can use them in the future for in-person and online learning and webinars.
Business Owner, New Milford, NJ
I recently launched a new Wordpress website and reached out to Randy for some specific help with the functional design. Randy quickly called in remotely and worked through the hitch I was experiencing to solve the issue. We were on the phone while he was doing his magic on my desktop and he kept me following along explaining in very plain terms so that I both understood, and could duplicate the skill myself the next time I would need it. Fantastic job, highly recommended!
