One of the greatest tangible, positive impacts to our business in the last two years was the implementation of John’s executive meeting “rhythm.” Admittedly, at first we half-heartedly and somewhat skeptically tried it, but once we fully committed, we quickly began to plan more richly and to execute at speeds and with an efficacy we hadn’t imagined possible.

Warning: Only hire John if you’re prepared to deal with a force of nature who has the savvy, business knowledge, and boundless tenacity to drive you to improvement!

After the unexpected death of our previous owner and president, John was able to step in and quickly steady the organization.  This allowed us time to position the company for the next phase of growth.

Matt PetersonBusiness Owner, Repete Corporation

John is uniquely qualified to quickly understand, evaluate, and implement a comprehensive success plan for fast-paced, complex businesses facing challenges or looking to establish strategic direction and competitive edge.  I saw this first hand as our business engaged John for his turnaround expertise.  Augmented by members of his excellent professional resource team, he stabilized, rightsized, and repositioned us for growth and profitability.

David LarsonCEO, Lutheran Social Services

We engaged John Howman and Allied Consulting Group to improve both sales performance and profitability.  Within just 6 months of the engagement, John carefully guided us to accomplish a complete and effective retooling of our sales team.  The result — significant increases in both revenue and bottom line.  Working side-by-side with John helped us discover and address roadblocks impeding our company’s maximum success potential.  Looking back, ours was a high value-add and insightful consulting experience with someone we believe truly earns his “trusted advisor” credentials.

I owe my IT executive career to John Howman. I had the privilege of working closely for John at Allied Computer Group in the 90’s.  His encouragement and guidance gave me the confidence to rise to the “C” ranks and become a CIO.  His professional demeanor and ability to stay current in IT trends, not fads, is something I try daily to emulate.

Richard MortonIT Executive, Free Methodist Foundation

I trust John and truly value his insights and advice. I am able to discuss business and personal issues with him, knowing he honors and embraces a strict confidentiality ethic. His experience and background enable him to provide valuable insights directly to both my team and to me. He relates well and has gained the trust of our management leaders. As an outstanding facilitator, John engages all members of our management team.  As a result of this engagement, our meeting sessions continue to create clarity of direction and specific, meaningful action plans.
