I travelled to Dublin, Ireland in 2006 to learn about the business of consulting from two of the best: John and Imelda Butler. What I learned has made all the difference in how I serve our clients and am rewarded. Now Imelda has captured this material in a book. It is a gold mine of wisdom, direction and inspiration. Every member of our team will have this on their desk and we will return to it over and over again.
