Testimonials

White starting quotation mark.
All companies invest in sales, marketing, and technology. The ones that take the time to invest in their own “why,” their own growth and that of their teams, are the ones that reach a different echelon. Our work with Transcend has made us into an elite organization in every sense of the word and it’s easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
Jess Rovello CEO, Arkadium
Transcend has been transformational for me as CEO and for my executive team. They connected the mind and the heart of our executive team, driving more alignment, a team working as one rather than individuals, and over-delivering on results. I have worked with many consultants and coaches. Transcend has been the most impactful.
Mark Goldstein CEO, Entertainment Partners
If the time has come to make changes in an organization, Transcend can facilitate the creation of an informed and cohesive plan built around the leadership’s vision while keeping firmly planted in the reality of what it takes for that vision to succeed.
Nancy Novokmet Managing Partner, NEED
