“We hired Ann Bowers-Evangelista to perform an organizational review within our organization. Her professionalism and keen listening skills quickly earned her valuable trust. She worked extremely well with all levels of employees, including rank-and-file and executive-level employees and Board members. She partnered well with me and other key individuals, balancing keeping to deadlines with showing great flexibility as the project progressed. She showed remarkable skill in synthesizing all of the data, leading to a report which identified important themes, made findings and offered recommendations. The credibility of her report and presentation to key leaders in the organization led to the adoption of her report and all of its recommendations.”

“Sometimes the coach needs a coach! As a full-time Professional Triathlon Coach, I reached a point in my career in which I needed to take my business to the next level. With Ann’s help, I am on my way! After working closely with Ann for six months, I now find myself feeling much more confident when talking to potential clients about my services and the fees. She provided me with tools that helped me focus on what was important and take action to make changes.
Ann’s coaching style is no-nonsense. She wanted to know what was important to me so we could stay on task. Ann is a terrific listener. There were times in which we were focusing on an issue, she would pick up on something subtle and our focus would change. She instinctively knew there was an underlying issue needed addressed. Ann held me accountable. We would discuss and agree on worthwhile tasks and realistic due dates ahead of time. Working with Ann was exactly what I needed to continue my journey getting to the next level.
“I have only the highest of recommendations for Ann. We have worked together in many venues: client relationships, professional consulting relationships, and co-presentation at professional conferences. I never have any doubts with Ann. With clients, she is superb. You can count on diligence, teamwork, and stellar client work with clients who expect the best and the brightest (example, finance vertical who is typically skeptical about human capital consulting immediately sees value in Ann’s advice). As a fellow consultant, Ann is a fantastic partner who finds win-win’s and allots time to the behind the scenes work that is required for teams to work well together to exceed client expectations. As a co-presenter for professional conferences, we have received strong reviews for three reasons: 1) Ann prepares months ahead of time and makes it look easy in the moment because of her preparation, and 2) she is current with the research, and 3) she is articulate and great on her feet to help engage the audience and make everyone feel like time is well spent. I have known Ann for years and hope to work with her for many more.”
