We engaged Torchia and Associates to advise us on a significant global reorganization. Deb was recommended to us because of her professional background and expertise in change management. She quickly identified key organizational and business issues we needed to address prior to implementing the new org structure, and provided us with a well-thought out approach that helped our executives address these challenges in advance. Deb and her team were also instrumental in helping us develop our global communication strategy. As a result, we had a high level of buy-in and reduced resistance to the new organizational changes introduced. In every step, Deb's focus was on how she could support us in developing and strengthening our organization.

Deb and her team bring solid theoretical frameworks, deep professional expertise and profound insights
I've worked with Torchia and Associates on a number of important projects ranging from executive succession planning to global organizational alignment. In every project Deb and her team bring solid theoretical frameworks, deep professional expertise and profound insights to ensure that their work has meaningful impact for us. She makes the experience of working together less about what she does…and more about how we can develop and strengthen our organization.
“Our business faced major challenges in managing a service delivery practice across 4 continents. After many months of dealing with miscommunication issues and cultural disconnects that were contributing to dysfunction within the management team, I engaged Torchia and Associates to help us learn to work more effectively together within this global environment. Unlike typical training classes on management or cultural diversity, they partnered with us to develop a highly customized experience that addressed our specific business challenges. The team participated in a workshop that presented a unique combination of material in a very interactive setting that enabled each individual to view his place within the global and virtual team in a different light. We came out of it with some real, actionable results which have had a concrete affect on the way we now work together. What I appreciated most about this process was that the consultants were able to bring their real-world business experience to the table. Working with Torchia and Associates, you don’t get an academic exercise that the audience will 'sit through' and then move on to their day jobs; you get effective tools that will help you to run your business within a challenging global landscape.”
