Wes sees what’s possible, then translates that vision into creative solutions that create lasting value for an organization. You want her on your team, not your competitor’s.

Wes is one of the few marketers I have met who has the mind of an engineer (and believe me – I have met many people in my time at Mozilla, Google, SU Ventures and beyond). She is logical, systematic, and brings rigor to a topic that is sometimes seen as fuzzy. I would hire her in about 1/10th of a millisecond. Seriously.

Wes opened my eyes to the idea that a negotiation doesn’t have to be a battle of logic. Initially, I was worried about what I should say and nervous about getting thrown off. Now, I can stay present in the conversation and still get my point across–even without notes. Wes is very good at what she does. She knows her field inside and out, and understands the complexities of difficult conversations when the stakes are real. When you have an important conversation you need to get right, Wes should be your go-to.

As a technical founder, I was initially skeptical of marketing. Wes helped us see that a great product isn’t enough. We needed a clear story to help customers and investors understand our technology. If you need clear messaging about why your product matters, you need to work with Wes.

Wes managed to get to the essence of my dilemma so I could make a smart decision for what was best for my company. It was extremely helpful to hear what my blind spots were in terms of marketing fundamentals. In combination with her concrete suggestions, it helped me to build a new mental model for how my team will approach marketing.

Wes helped me brainstorm new and creative ways of accomplishing my goal that I would never have come up with on my own. The result? We came up with a great strategy for making the podcast a more interactive experience and the project was a huge success. People who need to think in creative, focused ways about how to achieve their goals, specifically in marketing and in strategic planning, would benefit from working with Wes.

When I first heard of Wes, I had the wrong impression that she was like an agency–that she would tell us ‘do this’ or ‘don’t do that.’ We’ve had that before and it didn’t work. The agency didn’t know our business like we know our business. Instead, Wes taught us how to think, and it was up to us to fill in the blanks. Wes had a completely different approach that was a more long-term way to handle our marketing and product launch needs ongoing. If we had her knowledge a year ago, we would have saved a lot of time and money. My only regret is I wish we had worked with her sooner.

I took lots of notes during Wes’ session because it was extremely valuable. I have been applying what I’ve learned from her, and I’m constantly positively surprised by the results. My team members (young and old) now have a much clearer picture of how to talk to customers and the media about our business and technology.

I was uncertain if working with Wes made sense for me, being that I have a full-time employer and a job that I love, in addition to my nascent online presence. But I realized a positive return on investment before our first real call thanks to her thorough and uniquely tailored prework. That alone was worth the price of admission.

When our team was looking for a marketing expert for our upcoming product launch, Wes was the clear choice. We operate in a highly-regulated industry, and we needed someone who would avoid shortcuts that might damage our brand. Our launch team had a mix of 20 coordinators, managers, and senior leadership across four departments, and Wes’ powerful stories, exercises, frameworks, and analogies helped everyone get on the same page. The workshop was extraordinarily powerful and I highly recommend it.
