Testimonials

Patrick Geschwind possesses the rare and essential ability to be able to objectively evaluate the work environment without an unnecessary delay in implementing critical changes. He does this in a professional manner that cultivates cooperation and respect from employees who previously felt disenfranchised. The improvement in morale is quickly noticeable as he sets about creating a team that invests in the welfare of the agency or business in which he is leading.”
Dr. Jan S. Harmon, Psy.d, MACP
Health Service Provider/Psychologist

“I would never be able to say enough about how much Patrick Geschwind meant to our church and private school. He came to oversee our school after an awful year wherein expenses exceeded revenues by $100K (or said another way, revenues covered just 80% of expenses). In less than six months he turned the school around financially - both by making hard cuts to expenses, and by working like a bulldog to increase our revenue (enrolled families). All the while he made personnel decisions, attended to the details or our program, and helped to maintain our aging, shared facility. He also left us with a projected surplus of over $80K.

More than once during his time here, I sorely wished that he wasn't an outside consultant; I would have loved to work with him permanantly. He was wonderful to work with and I commend him to you as a savvy businessman, a caring manager, and now, a friend.”
Scott Sundin, Senior Pastor
Blue Ridge Bible Church

Our respect for Patrick has grown into an ongoing business coaching relationship. He is helping us with the management transition our company is undertaking and he keeps us focused. He ensures we are on the right track. We like his systematic follow-up process and his insightful questions.

“ I want to say you have been a life saver for us as a  board (speaking for myself)...I know even though you only have a few days you will help Kelly in any way you can – thanks.  There have been many trying times during your time with us, but you knew or got the answers.  I am glad nursing is improving, and it will be so nice to take a breath and move forward!  Any comments/suggestions, etc. you feel the need to share with me would be very much appreciated.  I know you know a lot of stuff I have no idea about.  You have been a great help to us as a board and helped to keep us on task.  You will be missed from my point of view.  I cannot thank you enough.”
