“I'm just over the moon happy. As we developed this new brand, you guys actually cared about it as much as me. The whole team took time to understand and we went on the journey together. You solved it with me. This was true creative minds working together and you were invested in true collaboration. I've worked with other branding organizations and nobody listens as well as you and cares as much as MacPhie. You took the time to translate what was in my head and my heart and helped make it real. ”

“The MacPhie team empowered us to continue performing at a high level through a period of exponential growth. We needed to protect our source of competitive advantage - our culture and MacPhie’s approach was one of collaboration and co-creation, ensuring buy-in from all departments and levels of management during the development of our cultural roots framework.  The cultural tools we have now influence our hiring and daily operations in a way that harnesses our culture.

 “I highly recommend MacPhie and team. They take what others make complicated and simplify it to the benefit of building more highly engaged and motivated teams. We have a brand new public affairs team at Coca-Cola Canada. Their work helped bring together diverse backgrounds and experiences to build a vision and set of guiding principles for the team. The process helped the team to get to know each other and garner respect for each others’ contributions to the team.”

“I’ve worked with many consultants over the years and MacPhie is by far the most comprehensive, thorough and innovative.  When they commit to something, it is always delivered on time and complete.  While attending to the smallest detail, they still manage to challenge thinking and inspire each person to be creative and their personal best.  It is joy to work with Hugh and his team.”

“MacPhie exceeded our expectations when they facilitated a planning process and drafted the revised UTSC strategic plan. This was the first formal plan to be approved through the full University governance cycle, and it was received with unanimous support at all levels. We enjoyed the full benefit of having an external non-partisan team engage with stakeholders to hear their concerns, and then having our administrative team work with them to address those concerns in the development of the plan. Hugh and his team were outstanding at partnering with us to develop an exceptional strategic plan.”

“MacPhie and Company has a special ability to bring clarity to strategic, communication, and transformation challenges. They’ve helped me bring business clarity to public policy challenges that demanded the attention of decision makers; strategic clarity to an important campaign planning process; and, operational clarity that improved collaboration between team members. Every leader tackling complex problems would benefit from a conversation with MacPhie.”

“Over the last several years, the MacPhie Team has helped my organization resolve some meaty challenges and capitalize on some big opportunities.  The thinkers at MacPhie are always able to quickly gain a deep understanding of different facets of our business, which allows them to get to the root cause of the issue or the kernel of the opportunity.  And upon that realization, they provide practical and relevant insights that are actionable – their recommendations aren’t too small that they’re not worth pursuing, and not so grandiose that they’re too scary to chase.”
