Scott is fabulous in giving us a sounding board and access to his smarts. Having him on retainer is like having an insurance policy that, unlike fire insurance, only gets used after the fire.
—Niki Davidson, Regional Director, Allstates Technical Services, Telecom Division (a KBR company)
We didn't realize that one consultant could have the scope and the reach that Scott does. Once we were educated as to the variety of things Scott could do for us, almost concurrently, we experienced tremendous growth, improved operational efficiencies, and higher profits.

I am responsible for hiring Sales and Recruiting Team Members for our company. Scott helped me re-structure the recruiting process I previously followed to fill these positions, and the result is that I am more sure of the hiring decisions I make now than I was before working with Scott. The interview questions, timelines and candidate follow up tasks that are part of the recruiting process that Scott suggested help me better understand each candidate, what each candidate’s behavior will likely be in a work setting and whether or not a candidate is the best fit for our company. After I made my first hire using this process, Scott also helped me create a training schedule to get our new Team Member on board and up-to-speed more quickly than before. The result was that this new Team Member joined our Sales Team and began gaining momentum in our Sales Department at a previously unprecedented pace, and I now have a training process I can replicate to get all future hires up-to-speed.

I and my firm have worked with Scott Wintrip for nearly 8 years. Scott is a consultant who takes a very different approach to his business and business relationships. He has provided everything from education to our sales and recruiting professionals to mentoring and coaching with our senior leaders and myself over the years. The thing I like best about Scott is that he listens and truly gets to know and intimately understand the organizations he is working with. He has worked with us on setting up new divisions, helped with designs for compensation plans, conducted strategic planning with our senior team, organization changes, and worked in a one-on-one capacity with some of our executives. All of this to say that Scott is at the top of his game and can be so many things to so many organizations. He is really a one-stop-shop and a top professional when it comes to his knowledge, trends, performance metrics, and more. I plan to work with him for another 8 years at least!!
—Andrea Hopkey, President, Allstates Technical Services, a KBR company
Scott’s guidance moving into uncharted territory has been invaluable. By understanding from the beginning “true best practices,” we have undoubtedly circumvented many trials and tribulations. view letter
—Vanessa Hughes, President, Hughes Resources
Scott’s executive leadership presentation was right on target. Scott’s perspective on accountability – its importance and how to instill and maintain it within the organization – was of great value to the audience. Scott shared with us his no-nonsense approach to managing and coaching individual contributors – both rookies and veterans alike. This is of paramount importance to the small/mid-sized firms that by nature have small management teams. Scott’s professional delivery, coupled with his vast knowledge, made him a hit with the audience! I encourage you to take advantage of seeing Scott if he comes to your market.
—Jamie Schwartz, CPC, CTS, CERS, President & Chief Operating Officer, Haley Stuart Group
Working with Scott Wintrip has impacted my business in a significant way. I can say emphatically that my business has grown and expanded as a direct result of the consultative relationship we have developed with Scott over the past 3 years. Scott and I work together to develop strategic approaches to the opportunities, problems and challenges I encounter as an owner and the business leader. His fresh approach and perspective have allowed me to conquer many challenges in my business! We also utilize many of the tools and resources his company provides including analytics, blogs, and workshops for personal and business development. view letter

It’s been a huge success and we’ve been able to recruit and hire the right staff to take our sales force and culture to the next level.

MNRSA began working with Scott Wintrip several years ago. I had known of him and his stellar reputation in the industry for many years. As we were looking at speakers for MNRSA programs, Scott’s name kept rising to the top. Scott first presented at one of our educational programs and it was so successful that we brought him back again to be the keynote at our Annual Symposium. In addition to the keynote, he did two other break out sessions geared towards owners/managers and staff/operations. The feedback on Scott was excellent. People loved him and were thrilled with the valuable take away information they received. Attendees felt they actually had something they could bring back to their office and implement to make a difference to their bottom line. I would highly recommend Scott Wintrip as a knowledgeable speaker and would be happy to have a conversation with anyone regarding more specifics.
—Jackie Engmark, CSP, MNRSA Executive Director
As a leader, it is lonely at the top. Some of my poor decisions during the last 2 or 3 years were costly. Being able to discuss new ideas, problems, and strategies with you has turned the company around. It feels good to make money for a change.

Scott Wintrip has been a valuable resource with his consulting services to our company. We learned more in the last six months about best practices in the industry than in the last 18 years we have been in business as a staffing service that specializes in placements of marketing, creative, and interactive professionals. Scott absolutely, without a doubt, is a thought leader in our industry. He has a wealth of knowledge!
—Marlene Phipps, President, Celarity, Inc.
Scott has not only changed the direction of my career in the two years we have worked together, but more importantly, he has changed the direction of my entire firm, providing each employee with a positive outlook and more substantial goals, all of which I have gained under his tutelage.
I was a decent producer and a less-than-par manager when Scott and I met. Regrettably, the overall office did not fare much better. However, within a short time, Scott provided critical industry knowledge and a plan for making some long- and short-term adjustments. He has a thorough understanding of best practices in recruiting and his experience within in the field cannot be matched. Scott is not one of those coaches who strings you along in a program, offering little nuggets of information here and there, which will only be explored further in a later session. Rather, he is ready and willing to share his expertise, explaining concepts in a way that can easily be digested, immediately be reproduced, and quickly be relayed. By design, this has moved the entire company forward with a shared vision. Scott is a true mentor. I can now say with confidence that I am a leader in both production and management, as the ideas and innovations I have gleaned from Scott are truly practiced and preached by everyone in the office.
—Korey Wright - Partner, Infusive Solutions
I had the pleasure working with Scott this year and he is a great coach and mentor. Under Scott's leadership I was able to implement a new hire KPI tool that has been instrumental and extremely valuable for my organization. I appreciate all of his insight and time he took to help me. Thank you Scott for all you have done.
—Wendy Tordilio, Director, Joule Staffing Solutions
I had the pleasure of working with Scott while with Award Staffing as an Account Manager and later as a Recruiting Consultant. Scott provides a multi-faceted approach to selling and relationship building that goes much deeper than most sales programs. While measurables are an important part of gauging success in sales, selling effectively is much more than numbers. Scott has taught me how to ask the questions other salespeople may not think of and dig deeper to find the real source of a customer's pain. He has the ability to be completely unassuming and approachable; on many occasions I was able to run a challenge by him and received unbiased, encouraging and valuable advice. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for ways to improve their selling and relationship skills
—Marcia Custer, Recruiting Consultant, Award Staffing
Thank you for a wonderful presentation. Unlike previous presenters, your presentation will change the way we work with clients and employees. Our staff is applying what they learned are expecting great returns.
