Working with Others

Strategex consultants are never just in an office, they roll up their sleeves and go to the sites and areas where the issues and opportunities are. They did high impact sessions with us at a very remote, rural site in China, which were very successful.

Over the years, the planning sessions have had a significant impact on our business results and productivity. Andrew knows our business well and does an incredible job facilitating our planning sessions annually.

Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse President and CEO NovaCopper Inc.


Andrew is one of the most effective facilitators I have had the pleasure to work with. He was very effective at helping my team develop a unified, singular strategic plan using a very painless interactive approach. All participants including initial skeptics felt the process was valuable, rewarding, and enjoyable. I recommend Andrew to any organization interested in planning for success by developing a singular vision, strategy, and supporting goals.

Strategex were good at helping us focus on our objectives for 2013. It was difficult and challenging at times, but it really helped us accomplish what we set out to accomplish. It was specific and will be much easier to follow up.
The course content was broken down into manageable segments. Some theory in presentations was followed by practical exercises, so I felt engaged.
Thorough review process for establishing goals and initiatives.
Andrew is the heart of Strategex, and brings with him a highly empathetic approach. He really listens deeply to the clients, and helps them get to the heart of the issues and challenges.
Strategex becomes part of your company. They are not outsiders. The approach is so personable. Andrew takes the time to get to know the company. His phone interviews were intensive and thoughtful, no one felt it was a waste of time.
The ultimate benefit for us was coming out with a workable product. Specific tasks were measurable for certain people in the organization, and these were delivered by the deadline.
Methods were good because they were all practice, so you could visualize what the theory meant.
Venue for open dialogue and momentum creation.
Big picture and buy-in from all levels of the company.
Bringing management and their ideas and experiences together to work with one another.
