I found Mountaintop Consulting to be laser-focused in understanding our firm and what we had to offer and in helping us learn how best to communicate our expertise to our likeliest market.

I participated in Mountaintop’s Leadership and Business Development Academy along with several partners at our firm, and we were not disappointed.  The Academy introduced the ideas and methods our young partners needed to feel confident about their business development efforts.  For more experienced partners like me, the Academy presented a more deliberate and thoughtful approach to leveraging existing contacts and successes.  My colleagues and I saw results almost immediately.  Mountaintop’s approach works as long as you work the plan.
