I have had the distinct pleasure and honor of working with Mike Higgins both personally and professionally for almost 20 years.

He’s creative, detailed, and a real problem solver.

Our company recently engaged consulting services from Mike Higgins. The group came highly recommended by a trusted Financial Advisor friend. Over the course of several months, we worked personally with these men. We found each of these men to be professional, courteous, and genuinely concerned about our company. We feel comfortable recommending him to others, and we plan to use his company to further implement the changes they suggested.

I have worked with Mike Higgins for many years. His ability to quickly craft and execute an effective sale and marketing strategy for our specific company needs is amazing. They were addressed in a non-threatening manner with senior management which enhanced conflict resolution. His recommendations were always on the market and practical. Every time I needed help, he was either on site or he counseled me over the phone and he met every charge with high energy, enthusiasm and a commitment to excellence.

Mike Higgins was very helpful in organizing and developing a business plan for Submeter One, LLC to penetrate the multifamily market for the offering of an energy management thermostat control system. Mr. Higgins interviewed manufacturers, customers and competitors for the development of the plan. The goal from his plan was to find the right manufacture to set up our new distribution agreement. His plan led to a successful manufacturer/distributor business agreement.

Mike has a rare combination of being a global strategist but a very detailed thinker. He “gets it” when it comes to marketing, management, and quality brand appeal. His management and business experience is something I lean on. I highly respect Mike’s abilities and look forward to projects with him involved.

Mike’s knowledge of how markets and marketing works always amazes me. He picks-up on and sees things that few others do in this realm. He is also a leader (few people understand what a true leader is) and he is willing to take the risks of telling people the truth about what they want to accomplish and what it will take. I have sought his advice and always taken it to the bank. I’d hire him if I needed his services in a heartbeat.

If your company is considering doing business with Mike Higgins, you won’t be disappointed. Our firm practices lean manufacturing concepts but we were in need of a major change in our sales/marketing structure. Mike guided a newly hired a sales manager that had all the ingredients but not enough expertise to handle the undertaking without Mikes’ Executive Coaching. Mike also helped us transition into a revised Sales/Marketing plan, new dealer channel program and guided us in our next step, Corporate Strategic Planning.
