"I am writing this recommendation for John Birch and the Birch Group. John presented an afternoon presentation on Success Insights for our class of 25 service-disabled post 9/11 veterans attending our UConn Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans in Oct 2015. This class fit very nicely with our theme of living entrepreneurially, based on the book by LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, titled The Start-up of You. The presentation was an important and integral part of the curriculum for our veterans, creating an understanding of their strengths and opportunities. The veterans developed strategies to meet the demands of their industry's ecosystem, and most importantly, how to relate to others in their industry ecosystem. The veterans learned individually how they will be doing business, and how they comply with rules and procedures. The proof is in the results: Less than 4 months after the bootcamp, we have had a dozen veterans write business plans, 8 start businesses, and have already produced more than $2 million in gross revenues!
I highly recommend the Birch Group for your business training sessions and maximizing your business effectiveness. I am looking forward to bringing John in again next year!"
"I've known John for a number of years and know him to be an ardent advocate for his clients. He has years of experience as an executive at Aetna and a business owner. Now, as a consultant who changes productivity and profitability by improving the performance of people in an organization, I've worked with John as he works his magic for his clients. He's a man of great character, integrity and ethics. Proud to recommend John."
"The John Birch Group helped strengthen my new team as we faced a major business integration. His one-on-one coaching, team building workshops and conflict resolution are so very effective. He has helped us achieve our goal of become a high performing team delivering super results to our customers. Most importantly, lives have been changed for the better!! My team now have important new life skills that benefit them as parents, partners, people as well as employees and leaders. Thank you John!"
"I approached the Birch Group because I was in need of a company that could provide "one-stop" training for our management and hourly associates. The Birch Group helped me by building a training curriculum that focused on enhancing leadership abilities and strengthening the technical abilities of our hourly associates. The results from these trainings have helped us begin a development path for our future leaders. In particular, I appreciate how attentive they are to our training needs. They listen to our concerns and help us with the approach. In addition, they assist with any leadership guidance. I highly recommend The Birch Group!"
"The Jones Library, Inc. hired The Birch Group in order to manage the Library’s five year long range planning process, from beginning to end. Services included holding public, staff and Trustee focus groups; writing a public survey, both online and in hard copy, and collating the responses; compiling usage statistics and Library history; writing the “Plan” and presenting it to the Board for their approval.
Both John and his team were skilled, professional, and responsive. We recommend hiring The Birch Group for any of your strategic planning needs."
