Clients

The art of people connecting, conversing and contributing

Our clients are our passion. They are a rare breed of people, who see in others what they don’t yet see in themselves. We take our team building work seriously and give each group the attention they deserve. We understand the value of the opportunity and work tirelessly to make each moment count.

Through our corporate programs, we’ve had the pleasure of influencing hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, supporting teams as small as 30 and as large as 4,000. That’s global impact. And it feels great. Our clients range from independent entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 Mega Corporations. Clients enable us to spend our days making a living doing what we love. And to actualize our personal and professional missions. Clients rule. If you don’t have any, go get yourself some. We’ve worked with the following incredible organizations:

The entire room, including me, was in tears. It was just an awesome experience and all of the managers involved just loved it. I know it did a great thing for our company and the kids.

William Stanley - Nuerorscience Distirict Manager, Solvay Pharmaceuticals

A sincere “Thank You” for providing us with such an emotional and enlightening experience last Thursday afternoon. Absolutely one of the best “training” events I have had in my career. I have already related the experience and lesson learned to numerous people, both internal and external to Qualcomm. I am sure I will be talking about this most memorable episode for quite some time. What an impact – Thank you!

Ty Stewart - Qualcomm

I must say that I may not be able to top the experience we had with Odyssey.

Kristen Mucleroy - Fiberlink Communications

I cannot begin to tell you how valuable this event was for our Team.

Karen L. Henry - Merck & Co., Inc.

This is the most powerful customer service program I have ever attended!

James Terry - Sr. Leadership Team, Honeywell

This unique event brought us closer together on many levels, especially as partners in delivering value to our clients.
And just want you to know that there hasn’t been ANY negative feedback (out of 200 participants) which is rare with this group, so consider it a huge success on our end, as well as yours.

Merrill Lynch

Great investment in my team!

Jim Hoffmans - Centex Homes

Seeing the faces of the kids – and the adults too – when they received the bikes was priceless.

Bob Glotch - Boys and Girls Club of San Leandro, Saturn Helping Odyssey

I continue to be completely impressed with our event and have some excellent memories.

Gretchen Kaufman - IBM Business Consulting Services, UCLA Executive MBA program

This experience is one they won’t forget.

Kelly Sears - Boys and Girls Club of Omaha

Extremely professional and effective.

Gabriel Mesa - Amgen, UCLA Executive MBA program

Very professional and well directed.

Dan Greene - UCLA, Executive MBA program

The last couple of days were unforgettable, inspiring, and truly thought provoking.

Richard Cracraft - UCLA Executive MBA program

I couldn’t be more pleased with the training team you assembled, the content and how the material was received by the participants.

Christine Stout - Premier Retail Network

The look on the children’s faces was incredible. I’m very rarely speechless, but I certainly was then.

Evening Advertiser – UK, Lucent Technologies

Your session was truly phenomenal!

Marsha Firestone - Ph.D., Women Presidents’ Organization

We have come a long way in 3 years, and are building a strong foundation for our students to take the Odyssey experience to the next level.

Chris Reitan - Galena City School District, Alaska

Could you tell your co-workers that we appreciate the wonderful gift you offered seven of our most needy children.

Alan Roden - Cite Joyeuse

This year’s annual conference was a raving success and the Odyssey team was integral to that success.

Cyndi Pittman - Harolds Corporation

Yet another success!

Craig Moraes - Solvay Pharmaceuticals

I really enjoyed the “break-through” session last week!

Moez Seraly - Lucent Technologies

The team building was probably the highlight of the retreat.

Lisa Olsen - Owens Healthcare

It was amazing the impact you had on 800+ Sun employees. The response and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and many have described the program as “the best team building experience they have ever participated in.

Laura Moraros - Sales Training Curriculum Manager-SunONE Sales

This thinking has propelled our team to the number one position in our franchise for the past three years. I can’t state my opinion of your company enough-your professionalism, your creativity and your passion for what you do comes through loud and clear.

Craig Moraes - Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

They are very bright and insightful and brought out the best in all of us. Our entire group couldn’t believe how much fun and how much team building we did.

Mary Sheldon - WebTV Networks, Inc.

I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for the outstanding day we had yesterday.

Gretchan Chismar - US Payroll Manager, Honeywell

Odyssey is the ideal partner to organize and execute this kind of an ambitious undertaking that brings civic organizations and Claremont Graduate University together to benefit the children of Claremont.

Cornelis A. de Kluyver - Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University

Thank you for putting on such a great program for our team! We had a ton of fun and I think everyone learned a lot about themselves and the team! Thanks again, I really appreciate everything you did for our team! Fight on!

USC Women’s Swimming & Diving Team

As for the main benefits/take-aways, it’s hard to narrow it down to a few. Of course there were huge ‘Aha’s” for the group with regard to thinking outside the box and creativity. But there was also a vastly increased level of team cohesiveness. We really had an opportunity to know each other better and to have some fun together in a way that increases our commitment to work together effectively. But the biggest payoff of all was the combined feeling of having accomplished something with such an impact to people around the world. Knowing that we actually made a significant positive difference in the lives of people who so badly need it, was astonishing! Jean E. Jean Deering, AVP Learning & Development Manager BD/SBS L&D Wells Fargo Bank.
