He (Gadd) has consistently been successful in helping me and others reach our goals, complete our programs and find the resources necessary to move forward in work and ministry.

He (Gadd) identifies the needs of an organization, develops a plan of action, and then works diligently to ensure the plan´s success. He has done this on a consistent basis with corporations, non profit organizations, family owned businesses, and moderate sized community organizations. Gadd exceeds typical consulting services by contributing significant time and energy to the implementation of strategic and operational plans. It is not unusual for clients to consider him as not only their consultant but also their partner.
- Hubert Wiley, Vice President, Comerica Bank.
As a business associate, his knowledge of business and the intricacies of what it takes to develop and run a successful business or non-profit operation are his strength. His ability to educate and motivate individuals to focus on common goals and improve their effectiveness as companies and organizations is extremely affective and it makes him a popular resource. I´ve seen him in action in analyzing and breaking down functioning components and quickly defining the needed steps to optimize their operations.

I wanted to personally express my appreciation to you for all that you did to ensure the success of our “Continue the Vision” process.

You are an outstanding facilitator who encourages creativity, candor and open communication. Your passion, humanity, and good humor enriched us all. We are better because of your involvement. You certainly have our enthusiastic endorsement.

This is just a note to thank you personally and Gadd Business Consultants for assisting my business in our strategic planning initiatives for 2009 and beyond. I’m impressed with how efficient your service is and how much we’ve benefited in our critical analysis sessions with you. Your personal business insight is refreshing, extremely candid and inspiring. I appreciate it when a consultant can guide us down a path we never saw before. Your passion for what you do is obvious in every call, meeting and email. I feel like you are one of the most important parts of the team and that makes all the difference. As a start-up publication, it is often difficult to see the forest through the trees, and there is not a lot of time to contemplate either. Gadd Business Consultants was able to quickly grasp or market space, sales challenges and resource obstacles to efficiently help us evaluate our current sales and marketing practices and lay the foundation for a more robust strategic plan for the coming year. In short, Ken Gadd is an excellent business manager with a passion for clear and practical approaches to strategy and marketing.
