“Phyllis Haserot has been of invaluable assistance in helping me shape a marketing program targeted to my intellectual property client base and then nudging me just enough to ensure I carry it out. “I have so much enjoyed working with Phyllis over these past few years.

My time with her has been well spent. I recommend her highly.” Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative

“Working with you on business development skills training and coaching as a partner at Charles Hecht & Company LLP, I found myself much more focused, developed a higher level of comfort with my marketing role and paid more attention to follow up. We also dealt with some difficult internal issues that were getting in the way of team efforts. Thank you for your time and professionalism.”
— Thomas Engelhardt, CPA, Partner, Marks Paneth & Shron LLP

“Our firm, which had no formal marketing program before we engaged you to help us, has benefited from a heightened awareness of the need to market, how to do it, and the desirability of teamwork for marketing. You also helped us stress our focus on initiatives in particular practice niches, which have much greater potential than we were realizing.
For me personally, while I have had substantial success in business generation before working with you, your efforts have led to considerably more action in making and using my contacts for new business. It has paid off. In addition, you have been instrumental in getting us media attention for one of my niche areas, “business divorce,” which immediately had the phone ringing.
You have also pushed us as a partnership toward discussing important management issues we had tended to avoid. We continue to have these discussions.”

She is a good listener, an excellent writer, and a pleasure and an asset to have on one’s team.”
