                I can not say enough positive things about the experience of working with vChief! OPEN Madison – Out Professional Engagement Network was so fortunate to have been awarded this pro bono service program! This has been a game changer for us! To everyone at vChief, we have not taken this opportunity for granted and we thank you for your confidence in us! I don’t know what I am going to do w/o our CoS, who is the most amazingness of all! We appreciate you!

                My vChief has helped me to be able to breathe and then accomplish a variety of strategic business development goals that I have been putting off for years! Very different than a subcontractor accomplishing tasks, I feel like I have a strategic partner invested in my business’ growth.

                The SkillUp leadership team likes to debate and ponder, deliberately. But decision making has occasionally proven slow and cumbersome, because no one individual was coordinating and facilitating across all of SkillUp’s work streams. Edith helped us to coordinate in a much more effective manner, which allowed us to make decisions quickly and with more clarity. It’s been a huge benefit to the organization. We’ve loved having Edith on the team. She’s a quick learner, and after only a couple of months part time, has already provided tremendous value.

                Working with Meghan has been great, she’s helped us create our Board Charter and build out our Strategic Plan both have been a huge help. Meghan has been a sounding board for me and I think we collaborate really well together.

                Kate consistently takes projects on from start to finish, ensuring completion, with very little direction. I can turn projects over to her and she runs with them, freeing up my time considerably and taking items off of my plate. She is also a valued team member and has taken the time to get to know each of the work styles of all of the members of our team.

                Jenn was a huge asset to me personally and to TFA Baltimore during a period of transition between Chiefs of Staff. She was incredibly fast at getting up to speed on context and building relationships and able to add value almost immediately. I was so grateful to have her support during a critical period for our organization and team.

                vChief was an incredible tool! I had help with analyzing data and looking for trends, which helped me to actually use all the information available to me when making decisions and planning how to best move my organization forward.

                Karen is extraordinary. Her support was invaluable to me and to OneGoal. I’d recommend vChief to anyone who wants to take their org or team to the next level.

                vChief is a life-saver for small companies that are growing leanly or going through transitions. Working with Vandy has been seamless. She jumped right in and made herself part of our small but mighty team with little direction and a lot of resourcefulness and judgment. She is a strong executor, incredibly detailed-oriented and organized, and so easy to work with. She more than fills a need – she has added tremendous value and thought partnership.

                We’ve been incredibly pleased with Shayna. She’s incredibly brilliant and her level of systems thinking and ability to operationalize is impressive. I feel much more at ease now that I feel I can delegate things to someone who can think both of the big picture and the small details. She’s also just an incredibly pleasant person, and has taken quickly to our work in DEI.

                I was often told that if I got a Chief of Staff my life would change, but now I know it from experience. My days are spent the way a CEO should spend them now, and our business is booked farther in advance then we ever had bookings before. We’re a more efficient, well-run business because of her addition.

                vChief matched us with executive strategy support and thought partnership that has added significant capacity to our leadership team.
