Working with Roundtable Consulting has meant that we now have a clear strategy for the Asia Pacific business…. Our business has grown dramatically despite the global economic conditions.

The tenacity and guidance of Jennifer/Roundtable kept us on track through the process and past the low inertia points. In a short timeframe we have achieved a widely adopted and comprehensive strategy that has unified the team.

If you want to accelerate the growth and performance of your business, I can strongly recommend you speak to Jennifer and Roundtable Consulting Partners.

I really enjoyed your session at Ernst & Young yesterday morning - as a BD professional working hard not only to win work but also to change behaviours, it was great to hear that these are certainly considered areas that BD & Marketing are seen to add value!

"Jennifer facilitated our in house 2008/09 strategic planning sessions. This included a 5 hour Board planning session that produced a high level of engagement from all participants and intense debate. To round off the session, Jennifer skillfully assembled a strategy map in “real” time that pulled together the key issues that had emerged during the session."

This strategy map received overwhelming support from the Board members as a foundation for our strategic roadmap for the next 3-5 years. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Jennifer in future for a similar high level strategic planning exercise.”

(Speaking about Jennifer Rodriguez)

"When you arrived, 'peace broke out' and has stayed in place ever since. New-comers [to the firm] are shocked at how frank we are in our dealings with each other – we have extremely honest, effective meetings.

We often think of emotions as the fluffy bits. In my experience, dealing with people's emotions is the toughest – they’re the bits that can break you. You're the best in the toughest areas of management – dealing with the emotional and relationship-building amongst top people."
