"I have participated in design thinking workshops led by Stef and Shayna of SAM. I have hired them for high profile and complicated consulting projects for the career programs I manage. This team is incredibly savvy across industries and has the highest EQ in leading sessions with stakeholders, from high school students to a Board of Trustees. They are true listeners with a sense of calm, results-oriented, and all-around fun people to tackle problems and develop solutions with. The tools they taught me are ones I now use on an ongoing basis in both my professional and personal life."
