What our clients say


“It isn’t often that you can work with a small firm that can provide the scope of services, strategic thinking and organizational impact like Blue Skies. They are true partners committed to the success of their clients. Business results and client satisfaction are paramount for Blue Skies. They are a great resource.”
Steve Bratspies

Executive Vice President of Merchandising, Walmart Inc.

“Thank you for the terrific job you did for us last spring. I suspect that the only thing harder than herding cats is herding college professors, and you were wonderful at getting us thinking beyond our own self-centered research agendas, helping us figure out who we are and what we want to be as a department, and how to reach our collective goals (and measure our progress along the way). As you know, our strategic plan is still unfolding, but already it’s paid real dividends in our discussions here on campus with our administration. Thanks so much.”
David J. Meltzer

Chair of Department of Anthropology, Henderson-Morrison Professor of Prehistory, Southern Methodist University

“Working with Blue Skies, using their strategic process, was insightful, rewarding and fun. It not only enabled us to develop a clear vision of where we want to go and who we want to be, but also helped us understand where & who we are now, and what we have to change to achieve that vision. The environment & exercises in the Blue Skies workshop enabled candid, thoughtful exchanges that led to the generation of a solid plan that the whole team believes in. Now we have a clear, concise roadmap to follow that we all feel great about!”
Dorinda Savage

Innovation, WhiteWave Foods

“The Blue Skies Workshop was a powerful way for my team to come together and focus on the future. Not only did Blue Skies help us really determine what were the critical components to our success and the barriers to achieving our goals but they also helped us to create a roadmap and action plan for driving towards our vision. Their techniques not only got us all on the same page but allowed us to unify and become a stronger team. I would recommend Blue Skies Workshop for any team wanting to unleash the power of their team dynamics to drive business growth.”
Christine Kalvenes

Vice President of Innovation, Frito Lay

“I was a high performing executive that led strategic planning and multiple teams.  Throughout my career, I had been exposed to nearly all leadership and personality assessments as part of my professional development.  Yet when I wanted to make big changes to move into an “Act 2″ life where it was less about money and more about finding and living my passions, I floundered!   Blue Skies’ Coaching helped me get clarity and focus.  At first, I was doubtful the assessments would uncover anything new, but the approach, tools and insights they used really surprised me.  The process helped me uncover my true passions and purpose–and then helped me write an insightful balanced plan forward.   The process was invaluable.  I am now transitioning into the life I always wanted!  It takes work and commitment, but the happiness and contentment I have now are more than payback!”
