Now, Drew is bringing his expertise in strategic-planning, business development, effective communication, expectation management and cost control to all businesses in all industries. “Many business owners don’t realize that they can use the money we save by reinvesting in their business — equipment, supplies, etc,” said Drew. “My clients consistently give back to the local business community, and I want to give back to them,” said Drew. As a consultant, Drew values integrity and trust above all in his dealings. His empathy and compassion for his clients is what drives him to always try to exceed the expectations of his clients.
“What matters to all of us is that we’re afforded the best ‘human’ experience possible, wherever we are, regardless of the role we play – patient, guest, customer, client – where the common driving force behind the ultimate human experience is trust, compassion, empathy and loyalty,” said Deraney. “This, we all deserve.” If Drew could give business owners one tip, it would be to be patient and build your relationships. “The client relationship building process is a journey. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. You have to exercise patience.”
