“Monty has worked with a number of our manufacturing work teams in providing training to our employees that engages them to come to the understanding that they have an important contribution to their own work environment. We now have a more engaged workforce in which ideas for improvement are communicated more employees feel empowered to Act which improves our own business performance.” April 21, 2010
Paul Manks hired Sacher Associates more than once.
“Monty Sacher provided what our company needed. Astounding outcomes. Change in workplace thinking (from shop floor to Managers) with issues being confronted and solutions found. Not just for production outcomes, but safety and quality thinking. For the first time our supervisors had a framework with which to communbciate with their teams. The results were long lasting and life changing. Years later, working as a colleague, with Monty, in other projects, I experienced first hand the thoroughness and detail mindedness of his approach. I also, again, experienced, the workforce and supervisor and manager life-changing outcomes. The change in power, positive power, given to all of the work force never stops amazing me. The process has benefits way apart from just bottom line. And that's what has kept me admiring this man, his style and ways of thinking.” April 21, 2010.

Paul Foyster hired Sacher Associates more than once.
“I was blown away by Monty Sacher's approach when I heard him give a talk on strategic business planning and implementation. We were struggling to utilise our full potential, and here was somebody who offered just what our organisation needed! He was so down to earth and to the point. I took home a copy of his book "What do I do on Monday morning: a guide to organizational success" and contacted Monty soon after.
Monty is a true genius when it comes to helping you translate your vision and goals into reality, and his positive can-do attitude continues to inspire our organisation to this day. He allowed us to dream (and took our dreams seriously!), but always within the parameters of reality.
The bottom line is – with Monty's help – we turned our vision for a two million dollar facility into reality.” April 19, 2010
Dudu Lider hired Sacher Associates more than once.
“Harold is an exceptional business consultant with high expectancies of himself and his range of services to exceed his clients needs. We encountered this through the "Self Managed Teams' workshops in a previous organisation (GH Michell) that I worked and where the outcomes far exceeded what we were looking for in making 'change' to our operational functions. The outcomes of these workshop's made significant improvements to our organisational outputs, measures and objectives. In addition to this, the morale of the workforce improved more than 100% on pre/post workshop surveys.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Harold to any other organisation and also, to read his books on various business strategies.” April 11, 2010

"Harold Sacher has an incredible knowledge & experience bank to help improve team work and performance management. Simple systems that work and get results. The best thing about Harold is he doesn't try to fix things that are working, instead the focus is on where the most impact and positive change can be achieved in the shortest time. I enjoy working with him and learning from him."
Geoff Stodart hired Sacher Associates more than once.
“Through the work done with Harold Sacher we have at last found a process to engage factory floor employees and create effective work teams, giving us a distinct competitive advantage in the market place. I have been impressed with his ability to engage even the most skeptical employee in the team building process.” April 11, 2010
Duncan Fraser, hired Sacher Associates more than once.
“Harold is an organisational and management expert. I do not use this word lightly. What he doesn't know about Change Management and the role of Culture in developing successful business outcomes is not worth knowing. He has written a book on the subject and has delivered increased productivity and profits in some of Australia's toughest work environments. Regularly reviewed in BRW, Harold has passion for what he does and it is positively infectious.” April 18, 2007
