In Their Own Words

In this client video, Kristine Rasmussen, CFO of Datamark, shares her thoughts on the Blue Space Consulting difference. 

"Roy has the ability to quickly capture a team’s imagination and deliver compelling messages on the need for stronger change management leadership and customer focus. Over the course of several years, he also worked directly with my immediate leadership group to evolve our approach to strategic performance management.
We used Roy over 20 times to speak to every level of Hewlett Packard’s entire global Senior Finance staff. He teamed with our internal staff to conduct multiple training sessions and global webinars for our managers and employees around the world. He has been a terrific asset in the successful rollout of our Finance Transformation."

—Cathie Lesjak, Executive Vice President and CFO, Hewlett-Packard Company

"Roy has an innate ability to grasp 'the big picture' of an issue while still being willing to work in the details until the job is done."

—Rich Hanks, EVP, Sales/Marketing, Marriott International

"In my 25-years-plus of working in the 'customer experience' industry, I have never worked with anybody like Roy. When it comes to linking corporate, business, operations and customer strategies, I have not worked with anyone who does this as well as Roy. If you are looking to become a customer-centric organization, Roy is the best advocate you could find!"

—Trish Watson, Partner, Peppers and Rogers Group

"Roy’s ability to share knowledge in an engaging manner elevates his presentation and highlights the information exchange."

—Carol Waryis, Sr. Analyst, First Energy

"Excellent—Very engaging with audience. Presentation hit the nail on the head."

"Roy has exceptional foresight and the ability to see what's coming around the corner. He led MVCI's adoption of the Balanced Scorecard and provided thought leadership to the entire organization—a difficult task when you're the boss—a miracle when you're leading peers. I've found him to be able to not only see the problems that need to be addressed, but with great finesse, tackle them head on."

—Karl Sweeney, Chief Administrative Officer, Marriott Vacation Club International

"Have you ever been at a conference and had a speaker just grab your attention for an entire hour? A speaker who makes you laugh, keeps you engaged, and teaches you something about managing strategy? Roy Barnes is that speaker. At Balanced Scorecard Collaborative and Palladium, we held conferences 6-8 times a year, and after Roy spoke the first time, we invited him back for many others. He consistently received the highest feedback from attendees. You will not find a more engaging speaker and storyteller on the subject of strategy execution."

—Ted Jackson, Vice President, Palladium Group Inc.

"Thank you again for participating in our kick-off this year. The positive feedback I have received has been overwhelming."

—Michelle Coffield, SVP, Forsythe Technologies
