what our clients have to say

With over 250 of our top global leaders participating in our annual retreat, we needed this to be meaningful, impactful and as near flawless as possible. AGI's team set themselves apart by their consultative approach - asking about our needs, rather than offering a menu of activities - and by showing the expertise, creativity, attention to detail and flexibility that gave us confidence that they could deliver something exceptional. This was a fantastic success and one of the highest-rated third party activities we have conducted.

Senior Project ExecutiveGlobal 50 Healthcare/Insurance

Your consultants and facilitators always deliver their work with a very high level of quality. They worked very hard to become knowledgeable and conversant about my company’s values and culture. This allows them to be a real thinking partner when we collaborate on work.

Sr. HR Executive$25 Billion Agricultural Company

AGI's consultants have done extensive work with our facility senior leadership team and many of our front line managers. For two years, AGI conducted a two week long team building session for two of our facilities covering over 1500 employees and managers. They are passionate about their business and demonstrate the servant-leadership model. They act as a true partner, demonstrating high integrity and personal accountability. Their consultants are very versed and have a deep knowledge and understanding of training, leadership concepts, and career coaching. They practice win-win methodology with their clients; however very comfortable in delivering a tough message when necessary. They are very personable and very effective in communicating to hourly employees to senior officers.

Director Human ResourcesGlobal Sporting Goods/Apparel

We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful time. This has been the first retreat we had without any flaws or difficulties. It has been the theme of our conversation for the entire day today! Everything went very smooth and that is thanks to you for your professional service.

Chief Operating Officer/SVPInternational Financial Institution

We have worked with AGI for many different projects, events and initiatives. When teamwork challenges resulted in refinery turnaround delays - costing millions of dollars - we knew who to call. In a few short days, AGI helped our internal team and contractors establish trust, better communication and aligned processes, resulting in a savings of over three weeks vs. the prior turnaround. Spectacular return on investment!

Senior VP OperationsGlobal 100 Petroleum/Energy

When any of my clients have a need for a program facilitator, my first recommendation is always AGI. In the past fifteen years or more I have referred many clients to AGI and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. Whether it's a comprehensive multi-day team assessment and development program, or a half-day team building event, groups all enjoy and benefit from his expertise and leadership. I recommend their services whole-heartedly; they always makes me look good.
