Lori Wengerd, Owner & President of HOME CARE ASSISTANCE

Lori was Ann’s client

Her communication and organization skills are outstanding. She approaches each project as a consummate professional: experienced, knowledgeable and passionate.” January 9, 2012

Claudia Trusty, Partner, Trusty & Company – Creative Marketing & Design Solutions

worked with Ann at Ralston Consulting Inc.

“Ann Ralston is a professional’s professional. We worked together in promotion of the 2010 Connect A Million Minds Robotics Invitational. Ann was in command of every detail. She brought to the task a laser-like focus that made our job on the media-relations side very simple. Bravo!” July 28, 2010

Jeff Ortega, Media Relations, Time Warner Cable

was with another company when working with Ann

“I had the pleasure of collaborating with Ann Ralston for several years at a global translation company in the not-for-profit sector, wherein she led a critical effort to streamline operations, solidify the management team and drive the all-important notions of cash surplus and fiscal stability across the organization. Ann’s quick grasp of corporate mission, strategy and tactics led to an efficient project start-up and her leadership allowed for the coordination, amongst many organizational disciplines, required for several major systemic upgrades and the successful development of project profitability reporting (my predominant focus).

She is a fantastic mentor for young executives and an assertive leader who possesses a unique blend of management savvy, organizational discipline and strategic vision. Ann built and trained an effective leadership and management team that successfully weathered the spinoff of this business unit from the parent organization.
I would strongly recommend Ann for organizations looking to (1) build a dynamic team and to (2) fine-tune and operationalize their strategies.” August, 2009

Bruce Collen, Partner, Focus Business Solutions

worked directly with Ann at Ralston Consulting Inc.

“Ann did a project for me putting together a program for an annual regional conference. She did a superlative job! Ann did original research, and developed the conference program around the results of that research–a truly novel and exciting, and transferable approach. She is an outstanding planner, facilitator, thinker, and on-her-feet presenter. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her again.” August 7, 2007
