Client Reference

As a global insurance company we have access to a lot of service providers.  We are very happy with the ongoing support and coaching from George Paras & the IQ Management team to support our organization and have remained a client for the past 3 years and will continue to do so.  I work with George every week on architectural issues that come up on our initiatives and sometimes we work on plans and overall approaches including our organizational development and strategies.  It is all of great value to me personally in my role and for my organisation to move our programs forward to have such personal time and attention.  Working with George in the past few years has had a positive impact during these challenging times.
