Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
The founders brought many existing relationships with them, such as McLaren Healthcare, Volkswagen of America and VW Credit, DTE Energy, AAA, etc.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
The fact that Michigan was in recession before the rest of the country means that the work of re-inventing ourselves is farther along here than elsewhere. Michigan businesses are emerging from the recession with a new consciousness around the necessity to retain their best and brightest employees - and you don't do that without offering them developmental opportunities of the kind we provide. When the game has to change, and what you offer is game-changing solutions, that's a good thing.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
I think the region is, in fact, changing in the way it needs to most - developing a more positive self-image, and letting go of those things from the past that are no longer solutions for the future. It's part of our mission to help diffuse that thinking as rapidly as possible.
