Testimonials

Building organizations through better culture.

We are proud that our former clients see us as partners. Whether it is for coaching, culture consulting and design, or speaking and education, we invest everything we are to help build organizations one person at a time.

I highly recommend Jamie Notter as a speaker for your next Chamber event. He was very engaging, kept the audience’s interest by presenting great examples for all of the points he made and appealed to attendees at every level of an organization. The questions and discussion at the end of the presentation could have gone on for hours—always a sign of a great speaker.

I engaged Jamie to be our Opening Keynote presenter and he exceeded our expectations. He was an absolute delight to work with—flexible to our attendees’ needs, making sure his content was relevant to them. Our delegates LOVED his keynote and learned a lot about how humanizing your organization isn’t about the fluff—it’s about real business systems and strategies that drive innovation and results. Great job—I would highly recommend him if you’re looking for an engaging and thought-provoking speaker.

Jamie Notter has spoken at several ASAE conferences and his presentations are insightful and thought-provoking. He boldly answers the tough questions and gains tremendous feedback from participants.

Jamie and Maddie presented the opening keynote at our customer conference in Orlando. The audience loved it so much, we decided to repeat it online for those who could not make it in person!Since Jamie and Maddie work with real employees who have real business challenges just like our customers, the audience easily related to them. Through sharing actual experiences and case studies, they were able to captivate the hearts and minds of the audience and give them practical steps to start or continue the journey toward a better culture and happier and more productive employees. Jamie and Maddie are now friends of Sitrion for life—and I would not hesitate to invite them back to join us again at a future event.

Our members really loved Jamie’s presentation. A lot of speakers are talking about the Millennials, but Jamie’s presentation explained what’s going on in a way that was both clear and actionable. It’s not enough to just complain about Millennials–we all need to figure out how we’re going to work together moving forward, and Jamie provided some compelling ideas about how to do that.

Maddie and WorkXO helped us develop and implement a comprehensive content and engagement strategy for an extremely ambitious and innovative initiative. Her ability to galvanize internal and external stakeholders around common objectives made invaluable contributions to the project.

The whole team here really appreciates the culture work PROPEL did with us. The way they helped us identify underlying issues in our culture that we couldn’t quite put our finger on was obviously helpful, but most importantly they were with us side-by-side until we managed to crank out the necessary next steps and come up with action plans. It’s nearly a year later, and the momentum of the culture work is still going strong.

Jamie and Maddie not only helped us create a measurable baseline for Epic’s culture, they facilitated frank, open discussions with my team that brought theory to life in a real-world setting. I can’t say enough about how much positive buzz occurred in my office after the strategy session. In just a half-day meeting we were able to make strides in management, oversight, and team-building that otherwise took years to change. I give them my highest recommendation.

We are well on the way to being the 21st Century Association we have dreamed of, and this would not have been possible were it not for the consulting role Jamie has played. His involvement gave me the courage to follow this path and has paid significant dividends for all our team and for Fitness Australia. We saw membership jump over 50% in a four-year period, with revenue climbing more than 40%—all tied directly to the culture shifts that Jamie helped us make.

The work you did with our Senior Leadership Team represents a significant point of positive change for us, both in terms of the effectiveness of the Team and our organization as a whole. Since that time, we have enjoyed a new way of working together that is producing some pretty amazing results.

We were already pretty clear on our core values but struggled to turn them into action ourselves. When we brought PROPEL in, they helped us break those values down to the level of individual behaviors. We finished with a much better sense of what our culture looks like on a day-to-day basis, and now we can more easily see when we’re off track—and then fix it. They told me going into the project that culture needed to be a concrete tool for making your organization successful, and that’s exactly what we’re doing now.
