"Dan Mack of Mack Elevation Forum has been extremely beneficial to me in helping us manage our business with our top customers. The Elevation Forum was extremely helpful in looking at our business from a unique perspective. Particularly helpful was the Strategic Blueprint model.

This has resulted in AMO looking at our business differently while achieving stronger sales effectiveness."
