WOW – just WOW!! I have been through a lot of conferences and conference planning, and I have to say—this was an extraordinary experience. I don’t know what it felt like behind the scenes but from where I sat, it was flawless. You all do better work than organizations twice this size with twice the number of staff. I am amazed and honored to work with you!
ELLEN MILLER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, INTERNATIONAL OMBUDS ASSOCIATION
SBI has a “Team” approach and mentality in dealing with IOA. They go the extra mile in working with the various committees and leadership on tasks, projects, and strategy. It has proven for me to be a very comfortable relationship and one that adds value in ways that IOA has long needed.

Delightful group with whom to work. Has gone to great lengths to understand, assimilate and coordinate the process of our Society.

The SBI team hit the ground running and demonstrated superior flexibility and support to make the conference a success… and they have only built upon that success since.
MARK PATTERSON, CONFERENCE COMMITTEE CO CHAIR, INTERNATIONAL OMBUDS ASSOCIATION
For us, as a small organization of two staff members, SBI is able to increase our impact around our mission and effectively support us in the areas of finance, marketing & communication and event planning.
