What My Members Have to Say

Belonging to Vistage, and to Group 3597 in particular, changed the direction of my career. Through the collective wisdom and support of the other members of our group, I have founded and grown a business in five years and now am merging that business with my largest customer. It is amazing the collective experience, intellect and support that is available in this group. I feel very fortunate to be a part of it.

When I found my way to Louisville, one of the first things I did was get a list of Vistage chairs in the area. I interviewed each of them, I felt an immediate connection with Michael Strickland and his group. I've benefited greatly from my Vistage membership in a couple of areas. One is the ability to hold each other accountable. To be in the element with peers who are holding you accountable to what you say you're going to do has been very helpful.

Michael is an excellent Vistage Chair and Executive Coach. I have found his approach engaging and helpful to my business, augmenting the Vistage experience. As a Chair, Michael is all in with the group, whether meetings, one-to-one coaching or when he is needed for special opportunities or issues. Michael is also a great Executive Coach, a rare skill and very valuable to me as a Vistage member.​
