“When I have one of those rare, EXTREMELY positive experiences, I like to spread the wealth. Steve has been a valuable resource to me on many levels.  He is incredibly well connected and informed  in pharma, pharma training and training in general.  It is this connectivity that allows him to provide the unique service of listening to a client’s need and being able to match the best vendor to meet that need – at no cost to the client.  While his primary focus is in pharma training, Steve’s network is so broad that I have spoken with him about utilizing his partnering services for more general needs that I have here at Kaiser.”Cindy Canup, Director, Strategic Training & Development, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc

“In today’s world there is no shortage of experts, only a shortage of expertise. If you require true expertise and prefer dealing with someone who sincerely cares about you and your business, your challenge becomes truly daunting. Steve Woodruff is one of those rare individuals whose humanity matches his exceptional professional abilities.

“I worked with Steve at a medical education and testing agency, and was impressed with the depth of his knowledge regarding the issues, trends, and the people involved with pharmaceutical sales and marketing. I was similarly impressed with the high regard that clients held for Steve and his staff. Nothing ever seemed forced in Steve’s dealings with clients or colleagues.

“I recently contacted Steve to obtain insight I could apply in my job search. Before I knew it, my resume’ was in the hands of approximately 1 dozen executives at leading medical education agencies, which resulted in more freelance work than I could handle. One of his leads turned into a full-time staff position for me.

“There are many reasons that I would contact Steve if I needed help building a business. I mentioned only a few.” - Alan Gerstein, writer/editor
