we've got experience to share

Uprise Consulting brings together a combined 50 years’ experience in leadership training and business management. We’re proud to have helped companies and executives catapult their success. Large, medium, and small enterprises, non-profit organizations and universities turn to Uprise Consulting to reach their full potential and maximize their success. Our client loyalty and referrals are unmatched because of results - and the simple fact that people enjoy working with us. 


Not all consultants are the same, even though it may look that way on paper sometimes. Some consultants use similar tools or similar training styles, but our experiences, perspectives and personalities vary widely. At Uprise, we know that a truly successful business relationship comes down to one thing – fit. We take the time to get to know your business, your personality, your fears, challenges, goals and drivers. It’s then that we can provide a truly customized experience that aligns with your needs and meets your goals. It’s during this process that we make sure our clients are a good fit for us - we like to work with people who are fun, open and willing to embrace change. 


We understand that starting these processes can sometimes feel intimidating or overwhelming, so it’s our goal to make you feel comfortable, to enhance your ability to think, plan, lead and act with confidence while making our time together exciting and enjoyable. We pride ourselves in building deep connections with our clients so they can get the most out of their experience.
