Holly is about connections. She connects well with people, she builds bridges between them, she sees linkages
among issues, and she is a great communicator who can translate issues from one audience to another. These proclivities
and talents, combined with her extraordinary enthusiasm, organizational skills, and extensive knowledge of climate and
sustainability issues, enable her to be highly effective on whatever initiative she undertakes.

We hired EES five times. It's typical for a major company like Proctor & Gamble to go with
a big, name-brand consulting firm, but Holly and EES do superb research and analysis and pinpoint the strategic issues. Holly
has an extraordinary network of contacts that is a highly valuable resource to anyone looking to develop partnerships.
They did excellent work for us.
Vice President, Corporate Sustainable Development, Proctor & Gamble

and helped us succeed in a new area for the company.

Holly's paper and presentation
were a tour de force, outstanding. The leaders were stunned by her information which motivated them to pass a resolution requiring
all future meetings to be plastic-free and to continue using their influence to help solve the plastics crisis.
~Thomas Axworthy, Secretary General of the InterAction Council, and former Principal Secretary and Chief Speechwriter for Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
It was a great experience working with Holly Kaufman and her team. We are quite happy! She did an extremely
thorough job, gave us so much more in both quantity of information and quality of assessment than I ever expected,
they over-performed. She used her personal contacts to discover obscure but very valuable information. She made
us think about questions and resources we never would have come upon and the final product will help us make critical
decisions to move forward with our work. The next time we have a need, we would definitley hire her again.

Holly has the unusual ability to both see the "big picture"
and be attentive to details. That makes her an excellent manager.

Holly and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with. She provided detailed
and thorough research and analysis for C40 and we couldn't thank her enough for her hard work and passion!
