What Members are Saying.
David Wright
David Wright: "I have always been involved with green industry organizations, but (Jeffrey Scott's) peer group experience has transformed my company and my management style like no other group has. Where I used to brood over difficult decisions, I now have a group of colleagues who know my company and me well enough to help me make those decisions and hold me accountable to the results. My company has increased profits dramatically since I started with the group, due to tough decisions resulting in a more productive corporate structure."
