He seemed to get a quick grasp of our current situation then made some very valuable recommendations for us to re-think and implement. We are very grateful for his advice as we proceeded to make the necessary changes to step up to a higher level of operating. We would recommend Jonathan to anyone who needs some fresh ideas from a new angle.
