“Laurie Allan began working with Seventh Generation in 2001. She has provided us with a wide variety of services from leadership development, team building, executive coaching, strategic planning, and workplace community development. The more we work with Laurie the more we are amazed at the incredible value she provides to us. Much of our success—both in terms of sales growth which is running at 40% plus and the maturation and growth of our internal community, are directly a result of our work with her.
“I have turned to Laurie personally over the years to help me manage a wide variety of business challenges from dealing with the dismissal of a senior member of our management team, to confronting relationships that were not adequately open and direct, as well as the design of our performance management system.
“Laurie Allan has never disappointed us. She works hard before any meeting or event to plan the agenda and desired outcomes, her meeting facilitation is outstanding, and her follow-up ensures that we maximize the value of our meeting.”
Jeffrey Hollender, CEO, Seventh Generation
