“VCG is professional, committed, prepared and articulate. Their deliverables reflected strong teamwork. They were respectful of their client’s time by providing agendas, pre-read and always asked for feedback to ensure they were delivering on expectations. I appreciate their personal investment in their professional development which was evident in their deliverables and recommendations. We will leverage all of their work to make marked improvements in our business.”
— Julie Zunker, Chief of Staff, Business and Corporate Responsibility at Microsoft
“VCG far surpassed our expectations. We gave the team two very different questions to solve; one was clearly definable while the other was quite ambiguous. They did an excellent job of using the numerous resources available to them to tailor their answers to each question extremely well. We would absolutely recommend them to colleagues in the future.”
— Matt Wartenbe, Senior Launch Program Manager at LinkedIn
