The Associates

The Idea

Sometimes a project requires resources that go beyond those of a single person.

Paul Williams & Associates is a small network of like-minded people, with varied but complementary skills and backgrounds, but a common spirit and sense of what is important in life in general and at work … and strictly in that order! We come together on a project-driven basis and then return to our respective core businesses.

Each of us is an entrepreneur in some form, managing separate and successful businesses of our own. This gives us an independence in our consulting work which our clients appreciate - and it allows us to make the “we might say no” guarantee. That means, if we don’t think one or more of us can provide the right answer, we’ll tell you!

We began as colleagues during our time in industry together, became friends over time, and now we are both. We enjoy each others’ company and respect each others’ diverse skills, which is an excellent starting point for delivering high quality services and solutions to our clients.

The People

I have known and worked together with each of these people for many years and am prepared to vouch for their integrity and the quality of their work with my own good name. I have described briefly what I specifically value and admire in each of them.
