    by Harry Hutson & Barbara Perry

    Hutson & Perry draw upon their many years of research and management consulting to present a pragmatic approach to identifying, supporting, and sustaining hope and channeling it towards productive ends to create more vibrant, creative, collaborative - and successful - workplaces.

Troy's approach to projects is collaborative. His approach to conflict is compassionate and direct. His ability to get results is absolute. Team members trust him, leadership respects him and clients benefit from his experience and expertise. Whether addressing business challenges or celebrating successes, my team and I felt a true partnership working with Troy, as he is one of the best communicators and collaborators.  I highly recommend The Berryfield Group if integrity, collaboration and results are important to you.
