What Our Clients Say


The Sounding Board session was highly effective at coalescing our thinking around growth and establishing a strategic foundation for a growth plan. The visual nature of the methodology used by Parallel Minds is highly impactful. Our work with them yielded high return on time invested and we highly recommend them as a partner.


Rob C. – CEO, digital marketing solutions


Parallel Minds’ approach helped me to break down business problems into manageable, actionable work projects. Together, we went from solving a customer service issue to designing a customer service methodology that delights customers, engages and educates employee s, and contributes to the company’s overall strategic objectives.


Laurie L. – VP Client Services, direct marketing


Parallel Minds took on the role of independent facilitator to help a very challenging executive leadership team come to a shared vision and guiding principles for the Company. Within eighteen months, we had achieved our product planning, launching and profitability goals.
