My name is Bret Starr and I am the founder and CEO of The Starr Conspiracy.  We are a 60-person integrated business-to-business marketing agency.  Truth be told, we were running a pretty good agency before we implemented EOS.  Our client satisfaction and employee satisfaction consistently exceed industry norms.  However, we knew we could do more and be more if we applied a more diligent approach to “working on the business” along with “working in the business.”  We’ve been working with Tom Barrett for nearly a year now, and the operating system he has helped us implement to manage our business has opened up our opportunities for growth by an order of magnitude (in the truest sense of that phrase — we have 10x the opportunity now than we did before working with Tom to implement EOS.  It’s not easy.  But it works.  I recommend EOS to any executive or business owner that wants to get everyone in his or her company aligned with a vision and rowing in the same direction.  It’s not a silver bullet and it’s not a trick or a shortcut.  If you’re willing to put the time and discipline in to implementing (and sticking to) a proven method for driving the attainment of your company’s goals, then EOS is a great process for you.  Tom has been with us every step of the way.  Sometimes you have to go outside of your company to gain the objective perspective you need to take your business to the next level.  We couldn’t have achieved the amazing results that are starting to snowball for us if it weren’t for Tom Barrett and EOS.  They are part of our story now, and I hope we are part of their’s.

CEO, The Starr Conspiracy

Tom has added tremendous value to me and my leadership team. We started with the 2-day StratOp Workshop which was a great way to get the team engaged, bought-in and ultimately, on the same page. We continue to engage Tom to help us stay focused on what is most important and to act on the vital few areas that have the greatest impact on the business. David Jones

CEO, Yesler

Tom lead our management team through a series of exercises adapted to fit our phase of business. It was enlightening to look at the company from many vantage points, and make decisions as a team about what the next 3 years will look like. We are starting 2018 with a crystal clear target, and initiatives to execute on it. It’s been so helpful to have a map, a path, and for that matter be clear on what mountain we’re climbing.

Jody Grunden

CEO, Summit CPA Group

We are a fully remote team and gather yearly for a team retreat. We brought Tom in this year to guide us through the process of identifying areas we can improve, and charting a path to execute on that improvement. It was very well received by my team who sincerely appreciated being part of the conversation. Tom involved everyone, even the shy folks, in crafting the future direction of our company. We’re excited now and ready to take things to the next level. Carson McComas

President, Fuel Made

Tom has been a big influence in my life through his wisdom, guidance, and his ability to partner and come alongside our business and our leadership has been invaluable. More a partner, less a vendor. I recommend Tom to any organization looking for strategic planning, guidance, and leadership/team development. Dusty Gulleson

Vision, Traction & Healthy for Digital Agencies

Too many agencies are run on a patchwork of unaligned business operating systems and ineffective tools, leading to unhealthy teams and disappointing results.  It is as if all the arrows, representing the agency’s people, processes, strategies, marketing efforts, expectations, and culture are all pointed in different directions, often working at cross-purposes to each other: The […]
