As a management team we have been dealing with a number of challenges from new products and teams, movement of work, changing of roles, growth and more in the recent few months. I thought Strategy Up did well in preparing a few foundational models and topics to address a broad spectrum of relatable and usable content for all role levels from junior managers to senior managers and in between, as well as focusing on values that brought us together from a leadership, engagement and unity perspective. We have continued to work with Strategy Up on a go forward basis for other exciting initiatives to invest into our staff and their knowledge, support and careers holistically. A sincere thank you to the Strategy Up team and their passion, enthusiasm and professionalism.

My experience with Telcovision Group (the parent company of Strategy Up) through Marc Zirka has been outstanding. Telcovision delivered a quality product, on-time and with no surprises or drama. The experience for my 600 participants participating in the digital start-up simulation was an unqualified success. Beyond the simulation, Marc did a great job helping me to articulate the learning objectives of the exercise and communicate those to the participants in a way that delivered real value to them.”
