Financial Narrative: 1. The basics required to establish a formal corporate service have been streamlined into a startup capacity plan that accommodates one team of servicemen and a small administrative unit to manage production. 2. We expect to generate contractual obligations that will support the business plan attached that requires a corporate operation of no less than 25 employees and a substantially sufficient amount of startup capital. 3. Contractual obligations such as the Nationals Baseball Stadium, Redskins Stadium and the local myriad of major hotels, churches and corporations are key targets on our list. We dare not forget our prime directive as “The People’s Photographer” as we are certain to cater to the small backyard barbecue, local baseball, football and soccer games as well as everyone’s favorite theme occasion “My Birthday Party”, Anniversary and portfolio building for the millions of “Next Top Model’s” to be…

The Paparazzi “for hire” Conclusion Statement This plan is all about what is required for the overall success of this company as a corporation. Ultimately, we realize success is a step by step process. Plain and simple, here is what this plan is all about: 1. A micro-mini business that desires to grow into a formidable small business 2. An owner who is passionate about his work and believes he can expand his ability to serve a metropolitan area with excellence. 3. The DC metro area needs a service and product that answers the ills we have suffered for so long: a. Price Gauging i. The Paparazzi “for hire” is an affordable service b. Shabby Production i. The Paparazzi “for hire” Guarantee’s 100% Excellence c. Availability Issues (late, minimum time, rushed) i. The Paparazzi “for hire” is a team “at your service” Our request is simple: The Capacity and Ability to operate… minimum cost $100K. The basics... When you will start us on our way through the appropriate funding, we will pick up the ball and run a financial touch down…like straight to Nationals Stadium and then through Redskins Stadium. Bottom-line, we know there is a way to say, “Yes.” Yet, there are also many more legitimate ways and reasons to say, “No.” It’s not easy to grant this loan. So you do not have to be special to turn us down. We really need your promise to be the source that can make this plan a reality come true for us. This company has been in operation for four years. We have out grown our one man capability to meet the demand for our services and products. We ask that you place a few things before you as you prepare a way to make this loan a reality: 1. We have a track record and long list of clients as well as a tremendous portfolio to present ourselves as goal oriented, purpose driven and vision focused. 2. By and through the fact that we have several contracts under us, this demonstrates our deep community roots which establish stability. 3. We are willing to submit to a monitoring or assistance such as a comptroller at our own expense in our operations financially. This plan is all about starting, paying back and running on to success. Our profit margin is large, so we are more than capable of perpetual success.

Cheers to Success…

I. Executive Summary*

1. •

Business description: Company Description: The Paparazzi “for hire” is a digital photography company that operates in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We are “The People’s Photographer”. We specialize in instant photographs. Our new studio location in Union Station, Washington, DC is bright, fun and attractive for both young active adults and the business/government agents that require an official headshot or place an order for event coverage and arrangements.

Mission/Vision: -Mission: To be the most affordable, available and reliable as well as excellent in performance by guarantee -Vision: To be “The People’s Photographer”

Legal Description: The Paparazzi “for hire” is currently a sole proprietorship scheduled to file as an official SCorporation, January 2008.

History of The Company: Over 15,000 satisfied customers and clients since May, 2004. More than 7 unique products available by and through The Paparazzi “for hire” exclusively… We are the most cutting edge digital photographer of Washington, DC

Current Status: The business has grown exponentially, solely through client referrals. At this time, the company utilizes the services of subcontractors and temporary employees for individual assignments. Our primary issues are due to the lack of a specially trained and dedicated to the mission of this company workforce to serve a growing demand.

Future Goals: o o o o o o o o

Nationals Baseball Stadium (instant photo service) Redskins Football Stadium Washington Convention Center Marriot Hotels Local Churches Local Entertainment Companies Radio Stations Concerts

The Paparazzi “for hire” is scheduled to launch our corporation January, 2008 and complete the setup and establishment as well as consultant placement, staff training, testing and confirmation before February 31, 2008.

2.

Summary of Services and Products: We have seven definite service interfaces; one of which is a three channel service, known as “Business to Business” (or B2B). We have over 25 different standard products and we utilize the highest quality equipment and supplies by Hewlett Packard to serve the public.

3.

Summary of Market Research and Analysis: According to research and study, the retail photography field earns over $1.2 million per year We intend to chime in on a small part of that industry our opening year 2008. We have targeted the most active and gainfully employed --- specifically persons between the ages of 18 – 42.

4.

Summary of Competition: Primarily our competitors ad hoc are micro businesses operated from homes across the DC Metro area. We consider ourselves no different than the Block Buster of the 1980’s. Block Buster’s view of the market in regard to videos was to organize and promote the business in bright, attractive stores nationwide that featured the latest movies on video cassettes.

5.

Summary of Facilities and Operations: The Paparazzi “for hire” has two (2) sites for its business operations (one is our administrative office and the other is our studio). Currently our administrative office is located at 1050 17th Street, NW Suite 1000, Washington, DC 20037, in the Downtown K Street Business District. Our studio location at this time is a shared rental space in Upper Marlboro, MD. The studio will be relocated to Union Station, September, 2008. Both of these moves will enable the operations of the company to be smoother, and more appropriate for both customer service and the service department in conjunction with the administration office. The benefits of extended hours, more accessibility, and more space for less money equal good business.

6.

Summary of Sales and Marketing Strategies: Promotional Team Deployment/Canvassing, Attending Public Events, Event Booth Rentals, Standard Advertising – The Free & Easy Plan that recognizes the fact that everyone has multiple photo worthy events throughout their lives. “A Gift of Photography is Life”

2009 – 10 DC SMD (60,000) 2010 – 11 DC,MD,VA (1 mil)

Summary of Management and Personnel: The Corporate structure of the company will entail three major divisions, one executive over each department serving as the general manager, and a central corporate oversight consultant to ensure checks and balances on all systems established and operating proficiently. We will start off with a temporary to hire workforce. By utilizing consultants in positions of strategic importance, we will be able to insure our success in key areas of operation.

8.

2009 - $275K

2010 - $450K

2010 - $700K

We offer a variety of portrait finishes from which to choose. These finishes will be shown to the client upon pick up of the proofs, and the client will be given a brochure which illustrates these finishes to compliment a variety of images. Framing and gift packaging is also available.

 SERVICE & PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The services and products listed above are mixed and matched as well as uniquely applied to various occasions and client request. Specialized situations will apply to events and clients who have established contracts such as Mary Kay, Spirit of Excellence Church and Peppy Promotions. Past event photos will sell in the future repetitiously by and through photo memory books and membership yearbooks. A single job or event can sell more than ten times by the shear fact that we are an established photography service that archives and conveniently provides custom designed compilations for our clients. When printing is done in the studio, the manager handles it, alone usually, as these processes are general computerized procedures. However, if needed, a team member will assist in the production and packaging of the photo orders. The overall photo session process is as follows: • A photo session begins at the location of the clients’ choice and last usually 45-90 minutes. The photographer will take approximately 70 shots to ensure a good selection of proofs. • A set of proofs are selected and delivered via Postal mail within four to five business days. All proofs remain the property of The Paparazzi “for hire” and are to be returned in the supplied prepaid-posted envelope, if the website review is not viable. • Upon return of the proofs and photo or package choice as indicated on the supplied order form, The Paparazzi “for hire” will send the final print(s) in five to seven business days. The final print(s) are done by hand to insure the highest quality. Website orders are instant by the order information provided. The Benefits of Our Products & Services: We provide affordable, bright, full color, instant, and creative images that stand the test of time. We are available 24 hours, 7 days per week. When The Paparazzi “for hire” is in the building, the customer will generally buy from us whether they have a camera or not. Our instant picture is a 100% guaranteed, great photo which is more valuable than what the customer may be able to produce through their amateur picture capturing capabilities. Historically, the competitors in the area of instant photography have provided low quality photos both as a result of unprofessional business equipment and standards. Regarding the large corporations such as Six Flags, their operations have no ethics and pride therefore providing the cheapest, low quality paper and ink available on the market for premium prices is expected and accepted. The Paparazzi has a history of four years of excellence. We have a reputation of providing the best quality photos. Our clients always get more than they expected. Our standard is All or Nothing. The 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

The creative detail of our company’s products and services could possibly be duplicated by another company with the right attention to detail. The following attachments contain excellent information about the following areas of this business: Attachment #1 is the current brochure utilized for B2B purposes. The mini portfolio’s we provide at photo shoots give the client a feel for the variety of poses that can be used, and help them decide if they wish to incorporate other family members in the portrait. Attachment #2 is a brief review of a portfolio’s content. The discussion of the different settings helps the client select a studio session, home session, or outdoor location for the portrait. We also provide instructions for each setting. Attachment #3 is an example of a specific type of information sheet provided for a clients review for preparation.

Proprietary Position: The Founder and Principal Patrick Rand will rely upon the direction and advice of the Corporate Consultant, Corporate & General Counsels as well as the financial consultant of Smith Barney in the creation, division and distribution of the company stocks and plans. Steve Tyrie, Esq. is the Corporate Counsel for The Paparazzi “for hire” and is familiar with our company since 2005. The General Counsel for the Corporation, Mr. Obi Duruji has also been familiar with us since 2006. We will file as an official corporate entity immediately, January 2008.

2. Total Market: Market Research: Total Market – The US Census Agency’s, Economics & Statistics Administration, The Economics Census of Retail Trade latest data was provided 1997 with the following results: Adults between the ages of 18 to 42 are the target market because at 18 years old most individuals have a job and social life that requires and desires image capture. Up to around 42 years old, people tend to remain optimally active in life which requires image capture. People are still living their dreams between these ages and want to preserve the memories of the best times of their lives. Of a population of just under 600,000 persons of multiple ethnicities in Washington, DC, 79 percent are over 18 years old. Twelve percent (12%) of that 79 percent are over 65 years old which cuts our target market to approximately 67 percent or an estimated 400,000 persons. We are able to interact with the public through many opportunities that are all different markets: • Business to Business • Lunchtime Craze (by and through Promotional Team – Street Sense) • Internet Advertisements • Night Club Activities • Neighborhood Block Parties We are almost unlimited. By having products as inexpensive as $1 and as much as $900 for wedding photo packages available, the socio-economic factors that would normally be a consideration for the success of a business are virtually non-existent. We cross the gender lines easily by both being an attractive and interactive entertainment photographer. Consequently, where other photographers have failed, we have succeeded. Therefore, the company’s attractiveness gained through our Business to Consumer Relationship will be recognized as a powerful asset that accentuates our Business to Business Relationships. The Direct Competitors of this market are micro business owners often with very little business structure. Our competitors have prosperously existed as a specialty service that flourishes in a hit and miss fashion, mostly low quality production. An example of today’s instant photography business is the video store of the early 1980’s. Video Stores were mom and pop operations that traditionally were minimally organized ventures. Block Buster came into existence and organized the industry, thus having an excellent run for over 10 years. Customers will be able to compare our products and services to others. Therefore, to ensure that our services exceed the industry standard, the company will: 1. Utilize Hewlett Packard Equipment and Products, exclusively; and 2. By and through four (4) years of experience as artist, customer service technicians and experts we have a set number of standards as follows: a. 100% Satisfaction Guaranty b. Artistic Pride c. A Standard of Excellence: The product without blemish is the only acceptable product i.

Photographers Transformation Program, is an incentive the company offers to motivate our photographers to capture the best possible image of each and every customer

3. Competition: Our competitive edge is: 1. Our Name: The Paparazzi “for hire” (intriguing, known, exotic and exquisitely adventurous) 2. Our Location: Union Station, Capitol Hill/Downtown Washington, DC 3. Our Commitment to E X C E L L E N C E 4. Our Motto: “We Recognize The Star You Are” 5. Our Description: Affordable Photographer, which by and through this statement alone, we tear down the biggest reason why photography services are so under-utilized – it is too expensive. What sets us apart from the competition?

This is a picture….

…but when the picture is produced INSTANTLY and then like this…

One could almost say, “ANYONE can do that…”

Now we have a whole new deal. First of all the customer is saying, “WOW!”. Next they are figuring on how they want their picture done, as well as considering the cost. Whether they can afford it or not, they are interested in the services and products of The Paparazzi for hire. We have made an indelible impression upon them forever. We do not need or rely upon being hired as an event photographer. If we simply show up to the event, we are instantly hired, a hit with the crowd and allowed to operate as a service available to the attendee’s of the occasion. This gives us the unique ability to be practically unlimited in our business opportunities and interactions with the public. Branding is a key factor in being recognized. One of the Executive Business Logic Keys for our company is the understanding that: It is not, “What We Know” or even “Who We Know” but “Who Knows Us”! We will be Known By The People.

The business of instant photography prints has limited and unprofessional competition due to labor and sensitivity factors. The printer weighs 40 pounds and requires a protective bag to transport it. Though it is not very expensive, damaging the device in any way, means purchasing a new one... The laptop computer is not required but without one, photo enhancement is limited. There are several cables that connect all of these devices together as well as memory card readers. Backup equipment is required as well as materials for testing and preparation to appropriately perform photography jobs. The camera has to be a sophisticated device if one only owns one camera to do all jobs. Otherwise, the business will be limited in its performance and ability. Supplies, containers and reliable transportation is required. These items need to be appropriately packed so that they will not be damaged as all of them are sensitive items in so many ways. Everything required to operate this business has not been named, but, The Paparazzi “for hire” has a passion for this work and has mastered carrying and serving the people of the Washington, DC area with excellence. That said, it is understood why less-than-quality results are common place with the competition as well as there are few and hard to find services of this type specialty service available. Our affordability is based on volume. Our goal is to reach “The People” by providing services that they can easily afford. We believe in giving them more than is expected and promoting our best and providing it in abundance. A major realization is the fact that our cost margin in producing photos is less than 5% of our “Reduced Rate” prices. Our costs are less than 1% of our premium prices. That said -- we dare not forget our prime directive which is to reach The People and to be “The People’s” Photographer. One of the most important facts about this company is we do not have to charge money to be at an event to make an impact and earn money. The funds we would charge to attend an event is primarily to cover the employee cost and other incidentals; i.e. business overhead. The Paparazzi “for hire” realizes that the invitation to a wedding is an invitation to serve many people at one time. It is great exposure for all types of additional and new business opportunities for the company. Our ability to maximize on the occasion is primarily determined by our technological advancements being readily available as well as the human resources required to operate the equipment and serve “The People” Internet Services – Website: As the most innovative digital photographer of Washington, DC - The Paparazzi “for hire” will utilize this tool proactively, through a specialized consultant. Attachment #4 – Webmaster Consultant, David J. Hark of Hark/Internet Help, Inc.

The common denominator for our competitors is “Who knows Who”. The Paparazzi “for hire” has had wonderful success as a photographer in the DC Metro area – so much so that we can not do all of the assignments we are offered due to the lack of human resources, transportation and corporate organization to market ourselves as “The People’s Photographer”. The competition has a history of price gauging and studio only quality but poor results outside of the studio. It is our plan to promote the outdoor or non-studio pictures - on location and our studio photography division as a subsequent service.

IV.

Facilities and Operations Plan

The Transition Plan/Overview: The primary factors in The Paparazzi “for hire” becoming the premier photography service of Washington, DC will be found in our location and cost effective management strategies. Currently we operate an administrative office at 1050 K Street, NW located in the K Street Business Corridor of downtown Washington, DC. However, the location is small and limited, yet has other advantages that can be leveraged in other ways in other places. We have located a building in Northeast, Washington, DC which provides us a SBA disadvantaged business benefit for federal and state contracts. This location is central of three Metro Stations and within walking distance of major bus routes. The Northeast building has a lower rental fee and three full rooms provided with a kitchen and bathroom. One room of this location is more than the space allotment that we have in downtown DC. Considering our new departments of employee’s we will need separate rooms and operating space for equipment and supplies. Our new Northeast location will give us the benefit of being a choice contractor due to multiple reasons such as minority ownership and prime location.

The studio space is in Upper Marlboro, MD approximately 12 miles outside of Washington, DC in a Business District. The cost is affordable and the atmosphere is conducive to good photography. Yet the location is a distance that is not attractive which causes limited use of the space. For the reasons noted above regarding the Upper Marlboro space, Union Station in the heart of Capitol Hill/Downtown DC has been selected as the new location for the company’s studio. It is one of the most attractive and lucrative locations in Washington, DC. Union Station will enable us to serve the entire DC Metropolitan area as well as visitors traveling by rail or retail shopping. The corporate clientele and government officials are easily able to interact with representatives directly as well as be provided the most needed services such as executive headshots and personal web pictures can be attained during lunch break or after work. Conclusively, the regional transportation center will serve as a gateway for the company’s expansion to the Baltimore metropolitan area, as well as consider other possibilities and locations where our services would be popular.

Union Station For over 90 years, Union Station has welcomed people to the most important city in the world. This magnificent building has even played host to 17 Presidents and countless foreign dignitaries. However, what may be most impressive is the fact that Union Station's marble floors echo with the footsteps of over 32 million people each year, making it the most visited site in all of Washington, D.C. Union Station is the most exciting and dynamic shopping destination in the country. The quality and diversity of its stores have made it the choice of Presidents as well as millions of busy commuters and wide-eyed tourists each year. There are two levels of concourses, each lined with stores whose names you're sure to recognize. You will find specialty boutiques, fashion and gift stores, shops offering Washington souvenirs, and much, much more. For a tasteful break from shopping, enjoy a meal at one of our fine restaurants throughout the Station or visit the food court on the lower level with hundreds of delicious choices. For dessert, why not see a movie? The state-of-the-art, 9 screen Phoenix Theatre complex is located on the lower level.

The HR Consultant performs needs assessments or audits and makes recommendations or proposals, coordinates the creation and implementation of an action or corrective plan.

Our initial estimate for launching the company is a phasing and staging in process towards 25 essential employees working full time and on a staggered Schedule to cover a wider range of hours. The professional skilled employee functions are primarily held by consultants and the executive office. Other personnel range from skilled service technicians, to administrators and managers. The hours will be the standard business hours of 9am to 5pm. Yet, we are practically a 24 hours, 7 days per week company by order of the client/customer that schedules our services.

Positions Explanation: Yellow = (CO, CA, CM) Commissioned Officers/Agents/Managers are directly in control of company success Green = (NCO) Non-Commissioned Agents are not be directly in control of company success Red = Contracted Professional The Executive roles are to provide oversight and general management of each major unit of the company. Certain major accounts of the company are directly handled by the executives initially and than delegated to Account Managers to carry out their general duties. This is a commissioned position as the efforts of the executive officers are directly beneficial to the enhancement of the entire company. This design defines us as a bottom up company when it comes to the benefits of the organization. We are only as strong as the leadership that guides us. Marketing & Advertisement is a very important position which the decisions of this professional will make or break the company. Therefore, this is a commissioned position so that if their decision is bad, the first to know it and feel it will be the MA. Their aggression or passiveness will either make or break them first, before the company. The purpose of a team is to ensure the product is excellent and processed instantly. Each member has a role and their role is exclusive yet each one assist the other as required as all are trained in every perspective of the process and project. Service Team Members are commissioned because they have a unique position of being their own boss. Often times these individuals will be working alone. One team is a specialized promotional unit. A list of temps/contractors will be maintained for temporary assistants/help. The Service Manager runs the studio. This is a commissioned position because he/she has direct contact with the customers and greatly influences their decision to buy the small package or the large package as well as motivating the team. His/her attitude and mannerisms will reward him or cost him.

This is the interface that causes the flow of services and products for the company wide. The Office Administrator handles the day to day general business calls. The organization of all affairs through out the entire company is managed by the administrator as well as assistance to the corporate executives. Through computerized oversight software the administrator simply reviews most recording activities and directly sets order to all affairs. Logic Based Employment Plan: Start small, yet capable of addressing the current demand of the company... Ensure the appropriate business equipment; supplies, and software are available to fully employ our team to the maximum. Through a combination of employment options we intend to ensure the success of this corporation through human resources: 1.

Positions defined as Commission Officers/Agents/Managers 

2.

This ensures the candidates priorities and interests daily are in line with the success of the business; i.e. earning his/her paycheck. By utilizing a temp to hire resource “contracted professional” we are more likely to find the best candidate for the long term permanent hire that we need to acquire.

Training The purpose of training people who are already capable candidates is to ensure their familiarity with the Hewlett Packard equipment and supplies as well as The Paparazzi “for hire’s” unique customer Service process and procedures. This will ensure less incidents and more statistically satisfactory reports. Performance in each position, whether a photographer or a printing technician is critical to all of the other positions meeting their quota’s for business success. Each Team Member is trained in every position and optimized in their best role. The Basic Process Step One: The photographer snaps several quick pictures of the customer Step Two: The pictures are reviewed for quality and creative possibilities. Step Three: The print handler must know exactly how the device works and how to handle unique print jobs as every job is unique. Setting the preferences for an optimized photo is the most important part of the job as this is the final phase before the product is delivered to the customer. After passing the written and performance test for each position, we have a new team member who is aware of the quota and statistics measurements applied daily, weekly and monthly as individuals. Independent control features are applied to each team to properly gage individual performance.

5.

Advisory Team: This team is comprised of all of our consultants. Initially we will be primarily composed of consultants and a small team of Directors. Our intention is to switch the paradigm to a smaller advisory team and a competent set of directors.

• • •

Attorney – Steve Tyrie, Esq., serves as the Corporate Counsel who sets us up as an official corporation. His insights on the legal promulgations will be invaluable. Accountant – The firm of Williams & Williams will serve as advisor to our primary CPA and Board of Director, Tim Lee Nelson. Insurance Agent – The competing agency of Progressive Insurance will serve as Advisor to the company primarily because they are in direct competition with our current insurance agency Allstate. We are quite certain the interest in finding a mistake or area of weakness will be very high by this competitive choice. The general advisory team members will be derived from our memberships with various regional organizations such as the Board of Trade, the DC Chamber of Commerce, The Prince Georges County Chamber and The Washington Business Journal.

6. Board of Directors: Our Board of Directors will be composed of the permanent hire executives of the company who are:  Patrick Rand, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of Accounting  William Allen, Executive Officer and General Manager of Service Department  Sheila Moton, Executive Officer and General Manager of Customer Service  Obi Duruji, General Counsel  Fardin Nemotolli, Investment Banker (Smith Barney)  Tim Lee Nelson, Certified Public Accountant

Please review each of the section cover pages throughout this business plan. Few of the items that are in The Paparazzi “for hire� portfolio are displayed.


Wedding Info Requirements: Guest information provided – The Paparazzi information provided to guest

Wedding Party Informed: …of the photo session and its importance…that means they will need to pay attention and be cooperative with the photographer. It will be a quick and easy shoot if they would refrain from talking to each other and listen and watch the process of setting people up to be photographed. That will help them to imitate the actions done which will shorten the amount of time required to do the job.

Understanding of Cooperation necessity: My goal is to capture the images of the most important occasion of your life together. This is a lifetime about to happen in a short period of time. A request of cooperation such as “Cheering” and other kinds of playful acts and interactions will be made… this also applies to the bride and groom.

Guest Photo Session: Please inform the guest that instant photos will be available at the reception and all guests will be required to do a head shot for the bride and grooms wedding gift to each of them

Suggestions: Bring an extra set of comfortable shoes

Personnel Contractor Capabilities - Human Capital Strategy DSI has a great deal of experience in the area of Human Capital, specifically as it pertains to organizational mergers, changing organizational skills mixes, compensation reform, and performance and organization measurement. We can assist your agency with: Organizational Mergers. Many agencies are in the process of restructuring their Human Resource (HR) organizations into a single Human Capital organization. Such reorganizations invariably create stresses and anxiety among employees requiring active intervention on the part of leadership to dispel anxiety and create synergy among people and organizations in the new entity necessary to achieve the vision of the integrated Human Capital organization. We can provide assistance to these agencies as they work through the leadership and management issues necessary to make this transition successful. We have knowledge of the goals and objectives of the President, OMB, and OPM under their vision for the Federal government. Changing Organizational Skills Mixes. With the creation of the Human Capital organization also comes the requirement to change the skills of the HR professional from the traditional transactionbased skill to professional management partners steeped in theory of human behavior in organizations, leadership, and organizational design. The transition is made more difficult because there remains the requirement to provide high-quality traditional employee HR services as a core value of the HR organization. We have experience in process analysis and design practices necessary to enhance the quality of service to the organization, and experience in changing the skills base of the HR workforce through a process of selective external hiring, appropriate use of contractor augmentation, training and development of the current workforce, and establishment of reinforcing reward and recognition systems required to effect the changes needed. We can consult with HR leadership on actions necessary to achieve their transition in both areas. Compensation Reform. Diversity Solutions, Inc. has experience in designing performancebased compensation systems for the Federal government, and has considerable experience in what must be done to address and overcome employee and management resistance to the changes. We can provide consulting services on both the design and implementation of major compensation changes, with particular emphasis on the communications and engagement of the workforce that is required for a successful transition. Performance Management. The single most important element of moving an organization to a performance-based culture is the implementation of a performance management system aligned to the strategic goals and objectives of the agency. Design of the system is important because it must be based on the analysis of work across the agency to identify the common competencies/standards against which employees will be evaluated. Equally important is the implementation process that requires training for employees and managers in the process of writing performance expectations that are aligned to the organization's strategic goals and objectives from the most senior executives to the employees in the mail rooms. We have experience with the implementation of a program within CIA that was viewed by OPM and the Business Executives for National Security as a best practice within government. Organizational Measurement. Improved organizational performance requires metrics against which performance can be measured. We have experience in identifying measures of success that are aligned to specific organizational performance dimensions, and establishing means to obtain performance data against which progress can be measured. We can assist an agency’s leadership in the design of results-based metrics and associated reporting and analysis processes.

His clients come from many diverse industries and have included Fortune 500 companies, he now focuses his time and energy exclusively on assisting small business owners achieve explosive success.

In 1999, Brett successfully built and sold his software technologies company to a Fortune 300 company in a multi-million dollar transaction. Following that success, he grew to be a much sought-after speaker and trainer. Over the years as Brett worked with hundreds of organizations across incredibly diverse fields of interest, common threads of success and failure began to emerge. He distilled these observations in his Business Alchemy process. He added to this powerful approach a concept called The Value Quotient. The Value Quotient is a way to measure and assess the value being created in every relationship from business to personal. Brett has taught hundreds of business owners how to dramatically increase the value they bring customer, employee and personal relationships. Specific Experience Training Brett has conducted successful trainings across many diverse groups including; Youth groups, troubled teen groups, Fortune 500 division leaders, prison inmates, small business owners, sales organizations, and personal relationships groups. He has done training throughout the world for groups as large as 500 people and as small as companies with 2-3 employees. His straight forward training style is insightful, as well as honest and challenging. Negotiations Brett has a unique ability to bring parties together and resolve tough business issues. He has successfully led the negotiation on multi-million dollar business deals with outstanding results. His out-of-the-box style results in an extremely high level of success, where both parties feel like they win. Brett excels in business negotiations, debt restructure, vendor participation, corporate alliances, conflict resolution, partnership and employee disputes, key man acquisition (head hunting), business dissolution and expansion, and business acquisition and sale negotiations. Coaching Brett's passion for life is contagious to everyone around him. His positive outlook, combined with a brutally honest approach to exploring personal accountability and behavioral change have produced outstanding results with his clients. Some have made millions of dollars within a year of beginning coaching services. Often coaching occurs on a golf course or remote fly-fishing stream. Strategic Planning and Implementation Developing successful business strategies is an art. Brett asks extremely thought provoking questions and explores strategic possibilities well beyond the scope of most business strategists. He specializes in out-of-the-box thinking and strategies that can propel companies into a far more successful future. In addition, he can assist companies with implementation of their strategic plans. Brett has experience across broad levels of strategic planning including exit strategies, business start-up, marketing, acquisition and growth strategies, employee recruitment and hiring, cost controls, sales programs and general business management.
