Cambium Business Consulting works with a broad range of clients across the Kootenays and greater Canada using our proven formula to unlock their full growth potential. Here’s what our clients have to say about our services…
When I first met Chris a number of years ago, my business partner and I had a fledgling company that needed leadership. Though Chris’s consulting company was ideal for much larger companies looking to scale, I bugged him anyway and he was kind enough to give advice and was open to what we were doing. Fortunately for our brand family, Chris became the new CEO of the company that purchased us.
Though no longer in my role as co-owner, I saw immediately how his leadership and ability to drive rapid growth grew the brands I had co-founded farther and wider than we could have without him. From my own personal experience, I would highly recommend Chris if you are looking to get to the next level and beyond!
Chris has stimulated revenue, motivation through ideation. He is especially caring and kind, and compassionate and invested in his clients success.
Our time working with Chris Legler has been invaluable and truly enjoyable. The depths of his expertise coupled with his forward reaching vision have helped us navigate challenges and successfully adapt with innovative and effective strategies.
