Jeff Mcleod

Founder and President, Achievers In Life, Inc.
I was introduced to Advanced Planning Services (APS) by observing the operational efficiencies of the A.G. Gaston Conference. I observed that the Conference Director (Bob Dickerson) could focus on program leadership, and not get lost in the “weeds of detail”. I learned that this was because this annual conference was coordinated by Advanced Planning Services.

From that point on I have used Advanced Planning Services for our major and small events. Having APS as a business partner has allowed me to focus on the big picture.

Our partnership has also allowed us to start new initiatives without worrying about the implementation process. We bring APS in at the beginning of our idea creation sessions, and their strategic and planning acumen helps us be more effective in launching new events and programs.

We encourage you to consider Advanced Planning Services as a member of your staff with strategic and planning capabilities. They will make your events special while eliminating your worry about the implementation details.
