The most important and invaluable contribution Ken made to Chappellet with his values-based culture program was to break down the barriers to effective communication between the different parts of our company. Ken used many different techniques to teach us methods of working for common goals, techniques for working efficiently, and he taught us how our values keep us on the right track to success for our company.Dave Pirio, Vineyard Manager, Chappellet Vineyard & Winery

Our sales every month since your [culture work] have been up double digits.Cathy Choi, President, Bulbrite
This story (Way Beyond Wine) just flows effortlessly. I learned a lot about the art of winemaking, the art of living your dream, and the happiness in living ‘today’ fully and completely.

Ken, I loved your book. I read it on the plane from Florida to California and could not put it down. I have often struggled with the “implementation” aspects of a values program–and your book helped clarify a step-by-step process. Well done! CMDR Mark Divine, U.S. Navy (ret.)
Ken Majer’s values-based strategic planning process hit the bulls-eye with our team. I was particularly impressed with Ken’s ability to connect with each member of our team and get 100% buy-in, something we had not achieved in prior planning sessions. Our four sessions, approximately 4 hours each, were fast paced and well structured. Ken involved every member of our team and lead us to develop a plan that the entire organization is excited about. Thank you Ken! Jerry Sebby, President, KRC Rock, Inc.
I want to say that Ken Majer was awesome. His message on values needs to spread throughout the world. Somehow values have been forgotten in these crazy times. I think all of us can really make a big difference in our companies, families and the world if we all focus on positive values. I really liked hearing Dr. Majer’s presentation, especially after reading his book. This definitely will have an impact on my life and business.Captain Thomas Jacobsen, President/CEO, Jacobsen Pilot Services
Ken had a sincere approach to his presentation. He is passionate about the potential of all persons. The best potential in people can be realized when they discover what their core values are and apply them into their daily lives. The walk away I got was keep my core values present. I think I will have mine in a few places: refrigerator, car visor, office. That ought to work.Mr. Christopher M. Woodbury, President, Process Equipment Company, Inc.
Dr. Ken Majer is the best speaker that I have heard in a long time. He really brought it home to me at the personal level and at the business level.

Ken was a 5+ across the board, and my wife, Elaine, was even more enthused than I was: That says a lot!Mr. Barry McDaniel, CEO, Overland, Pacific & Cutler Inc.
Ken is a superior process leader. He is confident and brings out confidence for participation in the 1:1 and group workshops. I believe Ken’s message is strong and he facilitates a worthwhile experience for TEC members. I had the opportunity to talk with Ken after our formal meeting. He was engaging and I felt in touch with another professional experienced in communication and organizational development. Mr. Garry E. McCoppin, President, Griswold Controls
That was a great meeting yesterday-topped off with a most awesome speaker. (Bill, being a great family man, I think you and your wife, Magic, would have loved Ken!)Mr. Michael Learmouth, President, Deco Technology Group Inc.
