“Working with Beverly and her team at the The Collborative has been transformative. The training has given my team confidence, the coaching has helped us to lead better and our processes are tighter. Wish we hired her years ago!”
− Kristine Porcaro
Co-Founder & President, Lexington Wealth Management
“Bev and her team at The Collaborative have proven to be an immediate trusted advisor to our firm, adding value from the start of our relationship. Their understanding of our industry and the complexities we have within our talent base have proven to be extremely helpful and valuable. I am thrilled to be working with them and fully expect to be for the long haul.”
− Jeffrey Unger
Founder and CEO, G2 Capital Advisors
“Over the years our firm had experienced nice but somewhat sporadic growth and I needed help taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture. On a scale of 1 to 10, Beverly and The Collaborative have been a 10 to work with. Beverly helped us slow down and identify the areas that we really needed to concentrate on in order to take the next steps in our firms growth. [She] is exceptionally adept at sizing up what she thinks will work for you and more importantly, what she thinks you can handle…. I have enjoyed working with Beverly and look forward to continuing to do so.”

“The Collaborative team has helped us to create a more relevant message about what we do and who we do it for, and the systems to communicate that message on a consistent basis. This process has allowed us to immediately uncover opportunities that were there all along, but we did not know how to access them.”

They cordially listened to our company’s views and objectives, along with interviewing current clients. They then completely formulated the needed wording, differentiation, feeling, and sense of direction so that we could market ourselves uniquely. WOW!!! I highly recommend The Collaborative for any of your business development needs.”
