Client Success Stories

Susan is a very experienced and competent strategist. She knows the process, understands the elements and implications of an idea, and helped lead us to the results we needed. Following our session, one of our executives said she had a renewed sense of the big picture and the motivation for moving forward to the next phase of our company. We emerged from the process with our thinking very much aligned, knowing we were willing to pursue the same goals with the same level of commitment.

I have had the privilege of working with SageRiver, and its principal, Susan Heinzeroth, in my capacity as a Senior Program Officer with Rose Community Foundation. Her leadership facilitation and follow-through were what allowed a partnership among Rose Community Foundation, Child Health Advocates and The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing to result in a better understanding of the obstacles to CHP+ enrollment and ultimately, to increased enrollment.”

I am particularly impressed with their ability to grasp and define the ‘big picture,’ identify strategic issues and then to follow through by developing and implementing solutions. “

I was thrilled with SageRiver’s contribution to my organization. As an executive, I appreciated how I could count on a fully professional, executive level job from them. Sometimes, they knew what I needed before I did! One of their best strengths is their ability to help you develop your vision and strategy so it’s your own and not a “consultant’s”. SageRiver also knows the technologies available and how they can be applied as a solution to your process or technology problem.

SageRiver’s work with my marketing and communications team continually demonstrates fresh insight. I refer to them as an ‘idea factory’ where strategic possibilities and opportunities abound, and their final products are beyond what we envision! Their team is focused, conscientious, and genuinely cares about our business and people. They push ‘our envelope’ on innovative approaches and solutions to problems.
