    “The Consulting Hub has helped YES develop a marketing plan – which we are implementing to a T – and has provided guidance to us as we develop our Strategic Plan. We have worked with the Consulting Hub on two separate projects and have found them to be very professional. Their recommendations are thorough and well thought out. They don’t just say here’s what you should do, they give you the “how to do it” as well. I have been extremely pleased with George Brown College’s Consulting Hub's work and the team's dedication and commitment.”

    “The team demonstrated a genuine interest in the project and our business. Their thoroughness, attention to detail, engagement in conference call meetings and physical meetings, and professional demeanor was very impressive and appreciated. The quality of the finished product was excellent. Thanks to the GBC team, we now have a very good model to use for future considerations of investments in facility locations.”
