The [Solve] Friday January 27

Trusted to Deliver

Happy Friday! This week, our leadership team met to strategize and set goals for 2023! Dave Youngbauer, Co-Founder/Digital Solutions, summarizes the topics discussed. We also awarded Neha Trivedi with the Dean Brown Excellence in Consulting Award for 2022. Photos included below!

Looking Forward

By Dave Youngbauer, Co-Founder/Digital Solutions

I was talking to Nate the bartender after our 4-hour meeting. We were there to discuss, among other things, our future performance goals for 2023. He mentioned to me that our group seemed to have a lot of fun. “Why would you say that”, I asked. “He mentioned that he heard hooting, hollering and laughter. Usually, meetings at this event location are serious and we don’t hear all the hoopla from the meeting rooms”, he said.

Logisolve likes to have a good time but when it comes down to it, we get the job done too! In 2022 we were able to grow our business from 269,000 consulting hours to 284,000. That increase represents a roll up your sleeves type attitude. There are plenty of disagreements, plenty of groaning and missteps in any business family, but results matter.

We haven’t come up with a motto just yet for this coming year, but like any other business, we want to improve on the year we just had. To achieve our goal, we think we have just the Team to do it.

Questions arose about how we can attract new consultants and retain current consultants. We can’t reveal company secrets but hint, hint, every consulting company goes through this. It’s actually no secret and quite simple. Create touch points to our current, former, and future consultants. Face to face meetings with businesses and consultant. Use social media to enhance our message. Charlie summed it up succinctly: Connect, understand, measure and drive to get the results. If we can do that to attract and attain consultants while bolstering new sales opportunities using our sales, recruiting, capability leads and back-office teams we will have a winner. 2022 was good to us and cheers to 2023! Believe and achieve.

The Logisolve Team – Strategy Meeting 2023

Thanks to Emily, Jennifer, and the Partners for hosting a great meeting!

A great team coming up with great ideas!

Dean Brown Excellence in Consulting Award – 2022 Winner: Neha Trivedi

For those who have worked with Dean, this needs no further explanation. For those who did not, you should know that Dean was a skilled and highly regarded Project and Program Manager who could guide a client through any type of change or crisis.

But to know Dean was an opportunity to learn from Dean. He gave freely of his time; mentoring others, sharing ideas, building friendships and relationships genuine and deep. Sadly, in August of 2020, Dean passed away.

With the support of his family, Logisolve would like to recognize Dean for his values as a person and his dedication as a consultant in offering the Annual Dean Brown Excellence in Consulting Award.


We look to you to recognize and nominate your peers, Logisolve consultants, for this recognition based on …

  1. Delivery excellence in conjunction with their demonstration of values,
  2. Integrity and
  3. Giving back to the professional community (as a whole, at the client site, or within Logisolve).

This annual award began in 2021 and has been given to Jeremy Mann (2021) and Neha Trivedi (2022).

We are excited and blessed to have the opportunity to honor a great Logisolve consultant and recognize team members who carry on in upholding the same standards.
