Here are some testimonials from our great clients

We love our work and we appreciate receiving testimonials from our happy clients and teams we have worked with.

 

In one word, Elaine Slatter is extraordinary. Skilled, knowledgeable, personable and so generous, she combines the best there is in entrepreneurship into her work. She redeveloped my website into a professional representation of my company, spent time teaching this “techno-peasant” how to blog, spent hours coaching and advising me to the point that I have a much greater appreciation of the business side of my work. She has been endlessly patient and so generous with her time. The more I work with her, the more I appreciate the wealth of knowledge, energy, commitment and integrity Elaine possesses. She is a champion of women entrepreneurs and volunteers her services in so many areas. Elaine is truly an inspiration and it is my great fortune to be associated with her.

Jill Ackerman – Home Staging Expert – Owner Stage Right

I approached Elaine and XL Consulting to develop my website to support the launch of my new consulting practice. For years I worked in senior management roles for large organizations but this is the first time launching my own business. I needed someone I could trust to do it right the first time. Elaine brings an established reputation in both Canada and the United States mentoring young entrepreneurs, helping new companies take flight and established companies grow. In less than three weeks we had a fully functional website up and running complete with blog posts and Google Analytics back end measurement. Elaine created a roadmap with an established timeline and next steps and provided support, coaching and advice every step of the way. In the end, Elaine developed a well architected easy to navigate website and trained me to be comfortable on all aspects of social media to help raise awareness for my new business. As someone who is launching their own business for the first time, it was great having a mentor who has also done it herself and understood my need to execute flawlessly. Elaine brings instant credibility and trust. Importantly, having launched her own business, Elaine helped build my confidence, an essential ingredient in taking each and every step forward to successfully launch any new business for the first time.
Thanks Elaine!!

Tom Foran – Growth Catalyst Advisory

I contracted XL Consulting to assist me with writing a business plan.  Elaine reviewed the information I provided and promptly responded with a questionnaire that helped her to gain a better understanding of my business.  She created a detailed plan and provided me with valuable advice and feedback.   It took less than two weeks for the business plan to be approved for financing.  Elaine is intelligent, personable, and does not waste any time!  I would highly recommend XL Consulting.

Rachel Baker, Owner Operator, Primal Cravings, Burlington, Ontario, Canada

I strongly recommend Elaine and the XL Consulting Group. I have had a small consulting business for over two years but did not take the time to promote my services for future business. Elaine walked me through the steps to set up a website and company presence on LinkedIn and Google. I am very proud of my site. Elaine was fun to work with, patient and responsive. She is a great coach!

Charlotte Anderson, owner ALPHA Health Services Physiotherapy Clinic, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

XL Consulting were very helpful in researching websites to sell my original paintings online.  They found an inexpensive way for me to get exposure for my artwork.  In addition, they computerized my inventory, organized my online galleries, constructed my bio and hosted an email account for me.   Without their help I would have never been able to figure it out.   Now they are showing me how to blog to maximize search engine optimization.  Thanks, XL for your patience.

Diane Beffa, Brand Manager and Shopper Marketing Leader at DelMonte Foods, Fayetteville, Ark., USA     

Elaine’s leadership and people skills allowed her to lead  Victor Technologies International Canada and create a very cohesive work environment where people felt empowered to excel in their roles in all departments (Marketing, Sales, Finance, Customer Service and Warehousing).   She was also the business lead during the Financial Merge Project where I acted as Project Manager.   I had all the support needed to deliver a very successful implementation;  very clear business requirments and all activites assigned to the different resources under Elaine’s reporting structure, were delivered with quality and on time.

Elaine is a very professional, talented and down to earth person.  It was a pleasure working with her for 5 years and I can assure she will add value to any organization as an Executive Consultant or any other management role.
