Satori Consulting Inc.’s Recruitment and Selection Process

Organizations we have worked with:


“Hiring the “perfect” CEO to lead a new company during a pending amalgamation is a daunting task. We required guidance from a trusted HR consulting team to lead us successfully through this challenging process. Satori Consulting provided our team with the necessary expertise, tools and coaching in order to confidently engage the right person for the position in a timely and professional manner. The appropriate time was taken to fully understand our needs. It was a huge benefit for us to have Sandi and Manie fully engaged in the comprehensive approach we desired in recruiting a dynamic CEO to lead a company with solid strength in the senior leadership team. We can attribute our outstanding success to working with Satori Consulting.”
