Client Comments

"I hired Resource Development & Management earlier this year to assess our business sales procedures and to make recommendations on improving our methods. One of the recommendations that Jim made was to organize a grand opening. In the weeks leading up to our grand opening, Jim helped me to identify effective ways to get our message out. We improved our signage, developed print advertising and made personal calls to the owners of businesses located within a mile radius of my shop. This is where Jim’s expertise really came into play….Jim walked from business to business (many times in inclement weather) meeting and greeting prospective customers. Many of these people are now loyal customers of Buffalo Press, Inc. …Jim Serafin and Resource Development & Management proved to be a good investment for my company. Jim is a hard worker and will put his mind to the task. I would recommend Jim’s services to any company or organization."

"Resource Development & Management helped us to better define our goals and our competition and organized us to respond to new and very burdensome regulations. Our sales have increased 38% the first year of our Strategic/Business Plan. We expect to work with Mr. Serafin a long time."

Matt McDonald, Senior Manager
Brisbane Consulting Group, a Division of Lumsven & McCormick, LLP

Jim Serafin is a true professional who is determined to make a difference to help me to be very successful. He showed a genuine interest to chart a course for my business without once looking at his watch. He helped me to understand the dynamics of my industry and to focus my business strategies. This led to measurable and positive results. I would highly recommend that any business, big or small, new or established, successful or challenged, employ the services of Jim Serafin and Resource Development & Management
