The BECAUZ facilitated offsite really generated results. The sessions brought the team together and we are now more willing to work on challenges together. The facilitation broke down walls that were lingering and opened the door for direct communications. The team was so pleased to make bona fide improvements. I can already see the cohesiveness and the greater trust that they have in me as their leader. We now feel like a team, rather than just busy individuals.

Microsoft chose BECAUZ as its partner to coach our senior IT leaders through a tailored program of advanced Leadership and Change Management principles, skills and techniques.

The BECAUZ team did a fantastic job with the limited time we had. My goal was to bring them in to teach our team something they could leave with and use in their sales efforts on a daily basis. BECAUZ did more than that and taught them something they could use in their everyday lives—wow! We will definitely have BECAUZ back at future events.

Having BECAUZ help us with our Holiday party was the best decision I could have made. For the first time, I did absolutely nothing. I literally just showed up at the party and hoped for the best. And the best it was! You did a phenomenal job. The space was beautiful, the holiday décor tasteful, and the food superb. The best part? Not having to worry about a thing. I will definitely hand over our next party for you to plan and execute.
