Testimonials

Christopher Harding is a strong leader who motivates and manages his staff to work in a collaborative, effective and innovative manner. Christopher has a smart business head, listens to those around him and wisely processes information to make wise decisions that lead to success on many levels. Christopher has proven creative and business instincts which have led to award-winning and financially sound results. I've grown as a person and as an executive while working under Chris and attribute much of my present day success what I'd experienced during my time working with Chris.

Ilyssa Goodman, VP, Development, Production & Acquisitions Bonneville International

Chris is unique in his talents because he never stops creating, imagining, and thinking of how to make something great even better. He not only shows the drive and desire to stay on top of current trends and ideas, but he is a step ahead of everyone else because he's already thought of it! Chris is a pleasure to work with, very professional, yet casual and friendly enough that when working with him for the first time, you feel as if you've been working with him for years. He knows how to push any objective straight to success and doesn't hold back on what it would take to get there.

Kat Difrancesco, Director of Internet Marketing Innovations International

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris both as a strategic partner (currently) and as a client when I was Director of Work Environment at Merck. In all cases, Chris has proven to be attuned and sympathetic to client needs in providing thought-provoking suggestions for improving work environment relations. A ten minute conversation with Chris and you will understand what I mean. More importantly, your business results can benefit. I look forward to our continued work.

Darrell Butler, CEO Butler Consulting

I have worked with Chris for over ten years on consulting projects with Fortune 500 companies, as well as multimedia and film projects where we have found new ways to deliver content over the internet and have had nothing but wonderful experiences. He is creative, precise, conscientious, and very attuned to client needs. I look forward to working with him long into the future.
