Fred was and is clearly personally interested and invested in my success and how that translated into greater success for the organization. He clearly improved my ability to ask penetrating and thought provoking questions, to be concise and to focus on the most important issues. Through this process my thinking was expanded, crystallized and, in several instances, changed. As a result of working with Fred, my communications are more crisp, on point and effective. His broad experience, knowledge and insight were of great benefit to me.
