Sr Associate Commissioner for External Operations & Strategic Marketing, CIAA

I had the pleasure of working with Derek and his team for two years at the CIAA and would recommend them. Their extensive knowledge of the property was a huge help in my transition and I was able to rely on them for their expertise and ability to navigate the space well. The CIAA Tournament is a huge undertaking and Derek and his team managed all the deliverables very well. The team was very accessible and responsive to our needs. The staff always had a positive attitude, great professionalism and flexibility as well as the ability to meet deadlines. We were able to successfully launch our mobile tournament app with their assistance and guidance and it’s been a great addition to our communication offerings for alumni and fans. Overall there has been a marked improvement in our digital/social offerings presence.

My strategy session with Derek was thought-provoking and an eye-opener.  During our conversation, I felt that Derek listened and understood my needs as well as the personal challenges I was facing.  During our time together, Derek helped me get clarity on my target audience and effective ways to serve them powerfully. This session was a game-changer for me because we identified ways to leverage my experience and skillset to build credibility in my business.  I feel excited and confident about carrying out the plan that Derek outlined for me.  I would highly recommend Derek to anyone looking to up-level their business in a way that feels authentic to them.

Derek has managed our account for over six years and has done an excellent job in helping our organization with its public relations and branding efforts. He is a superb writer, has remarkable ideas and works diligently on projects from start to finish. Derek has been a lifesaver to my department, and I would recommend him to anyone.

What a life changing experience working with Coach D!  Coach D did not disappoint. I was stuck and blinded by my multi-directional ambition and I wasn’t taking any steps forward with my brand and it was frustrating. Now I’m clear on my mission and the steps to execute. I’m more grateful and I operate in a beautiful state (this is one of his systems at play) often and intentionally. He’s different from the ˜standard” Coach. He’s full of integrity, empathy, tough love and he pulls out the results. He is now a vital part of my life next to my lawyer, accountant, Financial advisor and mentors! He’s the real deal and I’m forever in debt to him for pulling me out of my sunken place!
