One size does not fit all Kinney creates custom strategic planning tools and workshops to accelerate the planning process to create effective strategies that meet the unique needs of each client.

Excellent appreciation and understanding of the strategic planning process. Tim integrated extremely well a very complex subject with diverse audience capability and in doing so delivered a successful outcome for our company.

Tim has the whole package: personable, creative, fast-thinking, hard-working team player who's dedicated to delivering the highest quality results on time. I've known very few of his caliber in my 35-year career. I'm happy to give my highest recommendation to anyone who's considering Tim to help accomplish their most critical business objectives.

Tim has a lot of strategic horsepower. He assisted us in developing a strategic plan and was instrumental in ensuring actionable outcomes from it. He blends theory and practice nicely, and is an excellent facilitator. I would recommend him without hesitation to any company large or small who needs help with planning and implementation.

Kinney’s Thrive program worked for us. We collaborated on a strategic growth plan and exceeded target projections by 50% in the first quarter after launch. And, it was an excellent way to develop our in-house community relations team.
