I am impressed at how Corey quickly gets to the root of what needs to be done to grow a team, develop vision, etc. He has helped me focus on ... getting the right things done because he has relevant experience to bring to bear on almost all situations. I truly appreciate working with Corey as an advisor and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for help to grow and bring change to their operation.
Matt Belanger
advisor: webcanada  •  Technical Director, WebCanada. Previously Senior Developer/Team Lead, WebCanada.
Corey asks great questions, digs in beyond the surface to discover root causes and tailors his advice to the personality of the person he's ... advising and the others they're working with. He thinks deeply about issues he's presented with, and doesn't depend on formulaic advice and "silver bullets".

Jane Lee
We worked together at FreshBooks  •  Recruitment and Services Specialist, FreshBooks. Previously HR Coordinator, FreshBooks. University of Waterloo grad.
Jane has that ability to determine and act on her own opinions, even when that brings her into conflict with others. She does not back down ... unless shown the error in her reasoning. She is extremely hard-working and is always looking beyond the current task to keep her focus on the long-term goal. She is brilliant and funny and cheerful and a joy to work alongside.
