Here are some testimonials from those with whom Doug has served:
Dana C. Bickford | Strategic Finance & Operations Executive | Change Agent
I have had the great fortune to work with and learn from Doug Thorpe in difficult situations where pressure was intense and success or failure of the mission depended upon leadership quality at the top of the organization. Doug is unflappable and in the most difficult of circumstances he always provided a clear head, forward looking guidance, sound coaching in all directions, and a cheerful spirit. Doug is a problem solver and a teacher at heart. He handles complexity naturally while building confidence in the individual, the team, the client and management.
Thomas L. Brown | RJ Capital | Investment Advisor Representative
My firm brought Doug in as a speaker for a group of professionals looking to make a career change. Doug is extremely knowledgeable and his recommendations are practical and easy to understand. We received very positive feedback from the attendees. I would highly recommend Doug as a resource and a speaker.
Nancy Mazzone | VP – Director of Human Resources at Haverford Trust
I had the pleasure and was honored to work with Doug. He confidently and successfully led a very large and challenging engagement of over 800 professionals. His principled leadership style garnered the respect and admiration of our client, on the ground leadership, and consultants. Everyone looked to Doug for guidance, support, and leadership and he did not disappoint! I personally witnessed countless highly sensitive situations that required Doug to interpret complex fact patterns in tandem with emotionally charged employees to arrive at the best possible solution. His leadership was rivaled by none — extremely calm under pressure, fair but firm, authentic, with consistently excellent decision-making. Doug is a stand-out guy, in every sense.
