    • “I had the good fortune to hear Stegmeier speak at NeoCon, and I was very impressed with the poise, knowledge, and practical understanding of current workplace issues. I found the consultant to be fascinating–yet approachable. The presentation covered a very complex subject, and put the information into very digestible terms. Since that experience, I have recommended Stegmeier for a number of our company’s events. True professionals with a genuine interest in sharing the vast amount of knowledge the firm has accumulated.” Heidi Schwartz, Editor, Today’s Facility Manager Magazine

 

    • “Attending NeoCon to identify the latest in alternative workplace design theories as a method for organizational culture change, I found Stegmeier’s presentation highly relevant to our needs, and found the firm’s theories to be more fully encompassing of the business environment in ways that are inherent to large corporations, but often not understood by architects and interior designers. I have found Stegmeier’s ability to connect with an audience particularly skillful, whether engaging with small or large groups. The firm is adept with the concepts of change management with a strong understanding of human psychology, business management processes, and how the workplace design impacts both. A unique and valuable combination of knowledge.” Sarah Cooke, formerly Workplace Innovation Strategist, Dell Inc.
