"My research scientists and engineers are a tough crowd. Deb and Ben trained the entire organization...top to bottom. At every level the participants were enthusiastic and positive about the training experience. 

The information was delivered in an interactive manner, that was practical, relevant and customized to the Volpe Center. I used them repeatedly during my tenure."

"It is my pleasure to work with Alexander and Consulting, Inc., an outstanding management development and business consulting firm.  The training programs they developed were outstanding and are still in existence at the Department (HUD).
 

Ms. Alexander worked for me on various training initiatives and programs both at HUD as Director of the Training Academy and here at Old Dominion University.

Based on her work, I would rank her as one of the best consultants I have ever hired.  Alexander Consulting & Training, Inc. is a valuable partner and Ms. Alexander would be an invaluable addition to any organization.

"I am pleased to serve as a reference for Alexander Consulting and Training, Inc.  ACT made a major contribution to our efforts to improve customer service.  Over a 4 month period they met with us for several days and involved key stakeholders including staff, faculty, Administration and students (nearly 300 people) in meetings, training, briefings and one-on-one coaching and planning sessions. 

ACT helped us set goals and implement strategies for improving customer service.  We now have concrete actions, common goals and shared commitments to improve processes, increase student graduation rates and reduce attrition rates.

I highly recommend ACT for improving customer service, team building, conflict resolution and the like.   If you need additional information on the services provided at ABC please contact me."

"Briggs & Stratton Corporation (B&S) has engaged in a partnership with Alexander Consulting & Training Inc. for approximately 5 years and the relationship continues to grow. 

The services they provide includes (but not limited to) needs assessment; curriculum design/development; instructional design and delivery; diversity & inclusion best practices; research; and consulting on key challenges facing our organization. 


The quality of their services is exceptional and very professional.  The team at Alexander Consulting presented a competitive cost model and delivered the “F.A.I.R.” and “Meets on Common Ground” training programs to over 400 managers and executives and it was very effective and relevant.  We currently use the F.A.I.R. video training as part of our new employee orientation.


I would highly recommend Alexander Consulting as a partner that has the ability to meet organization business and diversity & inclusion needs. Ben and Debra Alexander and their team were able to engage our executive and management level employees."

"I have worked with Alexander Consulting for over 15 years and have always been pleased with their exceptional performance.  While working in several positions at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), we used Alexander Consulting for team development and organizational training.

They applied experiential learning during the teambuilding workshops that resulted in each member of the team feeling that their input was taken into consideration.

While serving as the Director of the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization at the Department of the Treasury, I was asked to provide a list of small businesses that could support the mission at one of our bureaus. 

Due to the exceptional performance at SBA, Alexander Consulting was at the top of my list.  They provided exceptional support and as a result were asked to perform on a follow-on contract."

"I first experienced the professionalism and poise of Ben and Debra as consultants when I was Manager of Training and OD at SEIU. They were hired to provide a series of workshops and consulting services on diversity issues and I was impressed by their ability to connect and engage with all levels of employees by demonstrating their deep knowledge as well as their exemplary facilitation skills. 

They provide a balance of creativity and rigor, humor and wisdom, dynamism and thoughtfulness in their approach to consulting and in the design and delivery of their training. They are the consummate consulting team!"

"As of one of the largest labor-employment law practice teams in the state of Virginia we are committed to giving our clients high quality service in terms of information and guidance on employment issues.

Alexander Consulting & Training have played a significant role in helping us to achieve this objective as major presenters in our Employment Law Update seminars and as special consultants to our clients.

Based upon the success of our 10 year relationship   I am pleased to recommend them as top consultants and trainers in the HR/EEO field."

"As former HR director for an international business insurance corporation,  a rural regional bank and a major labor organization I used the services of ACT to provide training and consulting  for each of these organizations.

The insurance company needed to bring a highly diverse global workforce to a point of common understanding on how to create a harassment free workplace.


The bank was facing new client care challenges due to the changing demographics in its customer base and the labor organization wanted to establish itself as a model for diversity, inclusion and respect in the workplace.

I am pleased to say that Ben and Debra Alexander, and the ACT team, assisted us in meeting our goals in an exemplary manner. I strongly recommend ACT to any organization seeking to bring about positive organizational change."
