“The team at Boardroom Metrics (BRM) are solid, trustworthy and they approach Management Consulting differently. After working in the corporate world in Canada and Europe, BRM helped guide me through my career transition into an independent consulting practice.
I learned the value of being clearly defined and differentiated in commodity marketplaces like consulting and coaching.
BRM provided clients, projects and interim roles. Ultimately they placed me into my current permanent position as Chief Operating Officer (COO) with one of their clients, Digital Attractions.”
Jacques Robichon, COO Digital Attractions, past Vice President, Bell Mobility

I was reading an article in the National Post newspaper regarding Career Transition. This article really intrigued me, as I had recently earned an MBA degree and was considering a transition to the private sector. My main goal was to progress into a new career within the corporate business world where I could leverage my security, investigations, intelligence and risk skills. I reached out to Karen McElroy at Boardroom Metrics, who was mentioned in the article. Karen fully understood my Career goals. She worked quickly to identify my key transferable skills and helped me develop an online profile that would clearly differentiate my niche skills. My career has taken an exciting path over the past few years and I am pleased to recommend Karen and the Team at Boardroom Metrics to anyone making big decisions about their own career journey. The Team is made up of industry leaders with significant tenure – the intellectual horsepower is infectious! Craig D’Souza, Head of Global Investigations, Facebook

“Six short weeks ago I embarked on my journey with BoardroomMetrics (BRM). It has been an introspective, inspirational and exciting time. Karen and Jim helped me tirelessly to define and package myself as a consultant, now ready and eager to serve you, my potential clients.
A while back, I stumbled across a BRM ad, when my mother-in-law loaned me her Zoomer magazine. In transition from the corporate world to entrepreneurship, I realized that it would be more efficient to leverage BRM’s experience to help me achieve my goals. Ultimately inspired by the Think and Grow Rich Institute’s I’M.P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E seminar, I signed up with BRM.
My definition of success is, at the end of every day to know that I have done my best to help you, dear clients, exceed your customers’ expectations. Thanks to BRM’s taking care of the myriad administrative aspects, I can focus on serving you, to boost your organization’s productivity, via more efficient back-office organization.
Thank you Karen and Jim for enabling my P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E.” Fay Rakoff, Consultant, Operational Efficiency
