Even with the Affordable Care Act creating a more competitive and uncertain landscape, IPRO went on to secure every contract that was up for review in 2014.

Additional Client Testimonials

As a manager with a large staff I can appreciate having a goal and a short time to meet it. You did that during the retreat and I was impressed with the result.

Facilitators at previous retreats were not nearly as effective as you – most notably was the way you warmed the group up and galvanized us. The methodology you used was much more precise that facilitators we had at our previous retreats.  I personally felt like I was part of a solution with ideas and thoughts freely flowing.

Thank you again for your innovative approach.
