"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Vickie and John for about 2 years. They are not only professional, but the quality of their work and consultation is top notch. They have the ability to quickly identify client’s needs, develop a strategy and help the client successfully implement that strategy. They measure their client’s success against clearly defined metrics that they build into that strategy."

"I’ve known Vickie for several years, she worked with me as my VP of communication with ASTD.

"As a start-up company it is difficult manage your business, you wear multiple hats as a single business owner, some are totally unfamiliar. Talent Blueprint was able to quickly grasp BOOT-IT’s business model. They asked me all the right questions about my business, I shared my concern and challenges, then quickly help me identify cost-effective solutions that led to a more stream lined approach to my business practices. They also worked with me on building and expanding my brand through the creation of marketing collateral. I wasn’t sure how to manage the human resource part of my business, they quickly turned around a policy and procedure manual and ensured that I was compliant. A great company for any small business that needs help."

"After a successful career as a detective in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, I decided to start my own counter threat consulting business and needed assistance in the development of the various modules I wanted to design.

“Vickie and John worked with our team and employees over the course of 18 months. After several well facilitated sessions with our supervisory and leadership team, we realized that it was time to change our culture and the way we do business.“They helped us define our Mission and Values and then proceeded to work with our team by taking a very hands-on approach. Whenever I made a request, they quickly delivered what I needed, a sign of their commitment to excellence and reliability. Our casino team had experienced so much change in the last 19 years, it was doubtful that we would be able to break their old habits. John and Vickie were able to forge strong individual relationships, the trust level between them and our team was high. Their approach was quick, pragmatic and focused. I hope to have the pleasure of working with them in the future.”

"I had to create a loss service prevention power point presentation for a board meeting, it had to be compelling and sell the board on several key issues. I knew what I wanted to say, but couldn’t create a compelling story board for the presentation. I sat down with Vickie and in no time, she created a visually compelling presentation. The board was very impressed and my presentation resulted in some significant positive changes for our organization."
Aaron Ramsey | Edwards Risk Management
“I was tasked with creating a presentation that could be nothing short of spectacular. I was comfortable with writing the content for the presentation; however, bringing it to life in an illustrative, compelling manner was something that I was not confident I could produce. I engaged in Vickie’s services knowing that she shared my vision for excellence and that the project was in good hands. Having known Vickie for years, I had tremendous confidence in her ability to create a quality product that would surpass my expectations. And that is exactly what she delivered!”Kristal Surick | Director of Human Resources | Mandarin Oriental | Las Vegas
