What some of our clients say...

"I have used James as a coach and mentor for many years, especially when I need a fresh perspective and new ideas on how I can be a better manager. I find inspiration in his insight and in the questions he asks. I would recommend him to any manager or business owner who wants to be a better leader or wants to achieve greater success in their career”.

Alan Kotai

Rogers Group Financial

“James brings a fantastic range of experience to the table. James has been a mentor for myself and the team, and I have hired him on a consultative basis for over 10 years. Whether it is management goal setting, strategic planning, project management, recruitment and training, James and his team can add tremendous value. Recently the Cronk Group orchestrated a Board planning session, member survey and goal setting that set the tone and put us on track for the year. I look forward to having James back, and find that he is always accessible and checks in regularly. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his group if you want to take your business to the next level.”


Thom Killingsworth

 Executive Director - Kelowna Yacht Club

"When I need to get my team motivated and focused on improving our guest experience, I hire James. When I need to train my managers on how to be better managers, I hire James. When I want to explore new ways to grow our business and make more money, I hire James. You should too!"


Slade King

COO, Play Golf Calgary

"I have had the enormous good fortune and privilege of knowing and working with James in the club industry over the past 30 years. (Yikes, has it been that long??) I consider James to be one of the best in the business and would highly recommend him to any club or customer focused business that is looking to take the employee and customer/member experience to the next level"
