CLASH OF THE GENERATIONS
“Clash of the Generations offers insights into what motivates and engages employees of all ages. Whether you’re a new manager or a seasoned one, this book will strengthen your management game!" - Marshall Goldsmith
“As President of MSG Media, I hired Val to assist with the reorganization of my direct-reporting structure and to conduct a deep analysis of the production management (PM) processes at Fuse TV Network. When I first met Val, it was clear that she had the breadth of knowledge to offer value, but I was amazed at how quickly she assimilated into the PM department and into Fuse in general. She quickly grasped the challenges the network was experiencing and offered concrete, realistic recommendations for improving operations.”

"Our President of Operations [at Crew Creative] left unexpectedly at a crucial time in our company’s growth. Valerie was able to bridge the gap to keep the (back-office) operations running while quickly assessing the organizational structure needed to support the company in the future. She then found the right people who could work across all platforms at the company, from the senior management team to our highly talented and creative employee base. I would highly recommend her services.”

"Valerie’s strength lies in her ability to quickly identify the issues and then present solutions to senior management that result in a more efficient and cost-effective operation.”

"I got to work with Val for almost a decade: I've seen her negotiate with unions and landlords. I've seen her build an innovative office space and a strong work culture. I've seen her forge friendships and alliances. I've seen her train managers how to lead and how not to lead. I've seen her inspire excellent work and fire mediocre workers. I always knew if Val was involved, we'd be in great shape. There isn't any business that wouldn't benefit from this highly pragmatic, no-nonsense, can do leader.”
