Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our clients are saying…

  • Making a long (and very successful) story short, the course content presented by GBB’s Skot Welch and Mary Kelly featured great multimedia clips and a very dynamic approach including role plays and ‘real life’ case studies. They encouraged active participation of the trainees in all interactive exercises though the sessions, such as discussions, simulations and sharing ideas. Chem-Trend
  • By partnering with Global Bridgebuilders, you’ll have access to a comprehensive assessment, measures of your diversity systems and solutions to helping you leverage all the unique talents and characteristics of the people in your organization. As you consider Global Bridgebuilders for a consulting arrangement, I would not only recommend Skot, but challenge you to find a more qualified consultant to help you with your business. Deborah Philips & Associates
  • Global Bridgebuilders has made a significant difference in the City of Dallas operations. Originally hired to address difficulties in the workplace around racial conflict, Skot Welch has brought to the issues practical, participative solutions which have had much broader ranges of success than originally envisioned. Skot Welch has become a critical partner in driving organizational success within the City Of Dallas and is a personable, thoughtful, diligent individual with a committed belief system which supports in his work. Mary Suhm, former City Manager, City of Dallas
  • I enjoy working with Skot because he is a big picture thinker that meets you where you are. He has a way to explain big ideas in a personal way that communicates to every individual he is working with. He has skill and instinct for what works and what obstacles you may face in your work, and he is there through them. His personal touch can sometimes camouflage how nuanced and high-level his thinking is, until you look back and realize how far you've come with his support. Robby Griswold, Diversity and Inclusion Committee Chair, Zingerman's Community of Businesses
  • Skot Welch’s vision and energy are the first things you notice about him. Then you discover he’s a first class presenter/speaker. On top of that, he’s a proactive leader with character who genuinely cares about people and authentic relationships. His teaching and professional initiatives within the university’s adult professional and graduate program expanded its reach to economies in Africa and contributed to the program’s continuing growth and success. Dr. Rex M. Rogers, author and radio voice of “Making a Difference” and former President, Cornerstone University
