Participant experiences

"Going through the QuantumShift program truly was a transformation. I feel like I’m light years ahead and have taken this giant leap forward that wouldn’t have happened had I had a regular week in the office. I’ve always thought I’m very strategic – and I think I am – but I’ve reframed what strategy means to me having had this experience. I would invite anyone who thinks they are highly strategic to take the challenge and see if they come out on the other side thinking differently." 

– Lauren Boyer, CEO, Underscore Marketing


"The QuantumShift program is tailor made for companies that have gotten to a certain scale and are looking to figure out how to accelerate and optimize for future growth." 

– Avi Gupta, CEO and founder, SmartZip Analytics

“Carving a week out of your schedule when you are running a company is no easy task for a CEO. I can attest QuantumShift was quite worth the investment.”

–Tim Wallace, CEO, iPipeline


“The opportunity to reflect and learn with my peer group was invaluable. We were able to share our successes and failures and leverage each other's experiences. It is an opportunity that many in our position do not often receive.”

– Geoff Bloss, CEO, BCM One
