The Colorado Small Business Development Center Network (SBDC), a division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, engaged Terry to help them develop a Network strategic plan. I attended a two-day Balance-Card workshop that Terry facilitated on behalf of the SBDC. Given my management consulting background, I was impressed by Terry’s process—both the pre-work he conducted beforehand and the actual workshop facilitation. By the end of the two days, Terry guided 15 plus leaders to develop a working-strategic plan comprised of actionable goals, tasks and timelines for completion. Any organization desiring to develop a mission, vision, short-term, or long-term strategic plan that is straightforward, and yields a dynamic, actionable outcome, should consider Terry Hildebrandt to help lead this effort. I found Terry’s style highly effective and refreshing as he elicited individual and group participation easily and steered the group to achieve their objectives.Jan Cook, Director of Administrative Services, Marketing and Communications, Colorado Office of Economic Development

I highly recommend TerryDeb Pollock, Vice President of Development, Denver, Colorado
I asked Terry to help me with several development objectives as I took on a new role at HP, particularly around communicating with executives, developing influence within the organization, and visionary leadership. Terry was able to help me understand my thinking style and the styles of those I need to communicate with, and help me see how to bridge between the two. The insights I gained through working with Terry were fascinating and compelling, as they helped explain many past and present experiences and provided a way to move forward. Terry also observed my discussion facilitation skills in action, and during the course of our sessions, gave me a number of tools to use on an ongoing basis to be more effective in my role as a technical leader. I recommend that anyone who is interested in positive, effective change engage Terry.Grant Warrington, Software Architect at Hewlett-Packard Company, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Terry’s ability to imprint the wisdom he's gained through his myriad of educational and practical experiences is literally "amazing!" His eloquence, creativity, role playing and other teaching abilities allowed a group representing a broad spectrum of businesses, backgrounds and interests to each gain new understandings and abilities that will benefit us in our future business relationships. The seminar that you conducted for all of us at our Denver Chamber Leads Group C meeting was very stimulating. Most importantly, I wanted to communicate to you that it was your passion, enthusiasm, sense of humor and general good will (as well as knowledge) that made the seminar so meaningful. I know that everyone else in the group felt the same way.Russ Simpson, Owner, RCS Enterprises, Denver, Colorado
I was able to work with Terry on a team-building and organization exercise. It was extremely helpful and accomplished a lot. This was a group setting, but I would also recommend him for individual work as well.Nell Rivera, Director and Event Planner, Stellar Events, Denver, Colorado
I was in a group of executives and small business owners that Terry presented a workshop to. The workshop was focused on lead generation and how to increase business by building a professional network. Terry’s approach was unique and creative. Each individual that participated in the exercises that Terry supervised seemed excited and eager to apply their newly acquired knowledge in their own field. I personally found the time to be well spent. I am confident that using some of Terry’s suggestions I will be able to continue to grow my own business. I would recommend Terry to anyone needing group or individual coaching. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.Blue Grimes, President of Out of the Blue Screen Printing, Embroidery & Promotional Products, Denver, Colorado
