It was a privilege to work with Dan Beach during his time at Mecha in recent weeks. Dan was originally hired as a consultant from Cogent Analytics, but he quickly became a part of the Mecha family. He was able to ingratiate himself quickly with my entire staff, making the entire experience a very positive one for everyone.
Dan’s consulting approach was a great fit for my company and my personality. He never tried to force or demand any changes. He simply provided suggestions with sound reasoning behind those suggestions. And then he gave me the tools needed to implement any necessary changes.
Even though Dan had no direct experience consulting for a machine shop like Mecha, his ability to quickly learn the basics of the trade and apply fundamental business principles enabled him to help us in every aspect of the business. Because of this practical experience and tireless work ethic, Dan contributed countless ideas about better ways of doing things.
Some of the people on my staff had less than stellar experiences working with consultants in previous jobs, so they were apprehensive about me hiring Cogent Analytics. Dan was able to allay any fears by getting feedback from everyone and incorporating some of their ideas while still staying focused on the long-term goals of the company. My staff is genuinely excited about the changes we have implemented. And I actually had several employees comment that they were going to miss Dan after we finished our project. I assured them that we would be back in a few months to check on us because Cogent Analytics is fully committed to making sure businesses achieve their goals.
When I initially considered hiring Cogent Analytics, I was naturally concerned whether or not it would be worth the money. In retrospect, hiring Cogent Analytics is something I should have done a long time ago. Their rates are competitive with similar firms, and they guarantee their work. What have you got to lose?
Mecha has grown steadily since its inception, and the business was doing well for me and my investors by all accounts. I also had some very specific goals in mind and knew what it would take to get there. So why hire a consulting firm? The reason I hired Cogent Analytics is that I knew they could help me reach my goals much more quickly than I could on my own. One of my main goals was to get my business running more independently so that I have more time to spend with my family and other business opportunities. After just several short weeks of working with Dan Beach, I’m already there.
I highly recommend Cogent Analytics to any business that is looking to improve. Specifically, I am confident that Dan Beach would prove to be a valuable asset to any organization that is fortunate enough to work with him. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my experience working with Cogent Analytics or Dan Beach.
