Endorsements and Reviews

“Our audience absolutely loved the opportunity to meet with you in person and listen to your interesting and wonderful presentation this evening. I am very certain that your wisdom and techniques for leadership development have helped to enlighten them. I always enormously enjoy seeing you and listening to you talk. You are amazing!”

— Thi Hagenbuechle, President/CEO, TH Consulting and Recruiting LLC

“Our Audience Absolutely Loved … Your Wonderful Presentation. ”

“As a search firm, we have always been good at attracting interest from a large applicant pool for job openings within our firm. However, prior to partnering with Dr. Sam Alibrando, we had always struggled to consistently hire the ‘right’ person. Through a combination of both quantitative tools and qualitative insight, Dr. Alibrando has been instrumental in streamlining our hiring process. He has helped us create the profile of the ideal candidate and given us the tools from which to properly discuss the pros and cons of each applicant.

“Additionally, Dr. Alibrando has played a key role in the onboarding process of new hires. The insights that he has been able to provide to our new hires have allowed them to more quickly climb the admittedly very steep learning curve during the first few months of employment. At the same time, he is able to provide management with valuable feedback on how best to create an environment that will allow the new hire to be successful. If you have struggled in the past with your hiring process, Dr. Alibrando is an excellent bet to turn that weakness into a strength.”

— Alan Cullen, President, Westwood & Wilshire (a leading executive search firm specializing the Life Sciences, Healthcare IT, and CPG industries)
