Managment Consulting

Dr. Marilyn is a popular management consultant.
I had an opportunity to work with Marilyn during a complex marketing ROI implementation at a Fortune 100 tech company. During this engagement Marilyn exhibited an ability to effectively address and resolve complex team dynamics and communication issues. Additionally, Marilyn proved adept at developing quality client deliverables in a relatively short period of time by adapting existing knowledge to the project context and supplementing as needed with original frameworks/methodologies.

I had the opportunity to witness the MOST dynamic public speaker I have seen in my 25+ years of human resources management experience! The occasion was our company’s new employee orientation and the speaker was Dr. Marilyn McGraw. Although I have observed the same information being presented numerous times before, her energy was contagious and it was soon evident that every new hire in the room was grateful for the opportunity to come work for our company! I highly recommend Excellence at Work and Dr. McGraw to any one or any company wanting to incite enthusiasm and motivate a team towards greatness!! Sheryll Poris
