Elaine Ralls, CEO, The Commit Agency (formerly Air Integrated and Air Marketing)

When Charlie conducted his Is It In You? program at AIR Marketing, it really brought our team together and allowed us to focus on significant ways to improve our clients’ experience. We were quickly able to identify key initiatives, and his on-going support and follow-up increased the positive impact it had on our change efforts. I would highly recommend Charlie and his Program to enhance your organization’s business model and culture.


Mike Smith, CEO The Jokake Companies

Charlie’s consulting, coaching and mentoring skills are derived from a unique balance of head (grounded in years of relentless research and study) and a spiritual heart. His wisdom and zest for excellence is refreshing and inspirational. His servant leadership style is disarming and creates paths to discovery that can only come through harmonizing a safe and creative environment.


Bryan Vincent, President Bryan Vincent Associates

BVA has worked with Charlie for nearly 20 years on the strategic direction of our organization. His unique ability to zero in on critical factors in an organization and address them with a results-oriented approach has been essential to helping us grow and boost our bottom line.


Victor J. Zannis M.D, Breast Care Center of the Southwest

I have personally observed Charlie Tombazian facilitate many meetings - his leadership effectiveness is palpable as participants’ creative random thoughts and out-of-the-box ideas are collated into a strategic plan. When I was President of the Southwestern Surgical Congress, he facilitated a positive transformation for our organization that continues to be visible years later.


Bill Deacon, Owner Foster’s Seafood, Muze Lounge, and Muze Clothing

Charlie Tombazian has been a friend and advisor to my three businesses since their inception, providing incredibly valuable insights into the many facets of customer service. Our shared philosophy in the concept of great service caused me to hire Charlie to create a strategic plan to carry that philosophy from thought to action - which had the added effect of dramatically increasing the morale and teamwork among my employees.


Janice A. Miller, President Strategic Choice Consulting, Inc.

I have worked with Charlie in many capacities over the past 15 years—as a member of my staff, as a co-consultant, and as board members of an international association. His mastery of facilitation, knowledge of strategy, and empathy for people generate powerful consensus, morale, and goal attainment in any organization.


Fred Cuen Sr. VP, Avnet Technology Solutions Americas

I have had the opportunity to work with Charlie Tombazian the past 9 years from a tactical and strategic perspective. Charlie has helped our Technology Solutions business be affective in what needs to be done today to be successful, and helps us keep our eyes on the future to plan for profitable growth. Businesses have to consistently execute and continually plan to remain relevant over the long haul. Charlie’s invaluable facilitation helps our people maintain this delicate balance.


Roy Vallee, ex-Chairman and CEO Avnet, Inc.

We have enjoyed working with Charlie for over 10 years as a consultant, as our VP, Voice of the Customer Office, and as our Director of Strategic Planning. During this timeframe, he has made countless contributions to our strategy development through interactions with our executives, customers and suppliers.
