    Recommendations / Testimonials

      • Few people have the opportunity to report to a manager who is also a coach and mentor—but I did when I worked on Melissa’s team at Align. Melissa led the Change Management team through the biggest changes in Align Technology’s history: an ERP implementation and a global process transformation that impacted nearly a quarter of our employees and changed the way we do business on a massive scale. She was skilled at understanding and forecasting change impacts and she was incredibly adept at utilizing each team member’s strengths and encouraging us to step out of our “comfort zones”. Furthermore, she is one of the most dedicated and fearless people I know. Melissa will, undoubtedly, be a valuable resource to any organization.
        -Erika Wilhelm, Sr. Leader Global Learning & Talent Development, Align Technologies
      • For over 8 months Melissa and I have worked in partnership on a $11.3M construction and organizational relocation project. She has proven to be the Swiss Army Knife on the project team. Melissa’s broad range of skills coupled with her take-charge personality is a recipe for success. She has demonstrated particular strengths in her sensitivity and concern for others, innovation and creativity, and meticulous attention to detail. Seldom do I recommend someone without reservations. It is my pleasure to do so in the case of Melissa Conforti.
        -Jennifer Knickerbocker, Global Business Operations, Cisco Systems
      • Melissa and I worked together as colleagues to manage key external vendors to support corporate revenue targets. She is extremely process oriented with an eye for continual improvements of those processes. Her interpersonal skills are outstanding. Melissa is able to interpret and extrapolate useful information from myriad sources. She is able to create excellent strategies to solve complex problems. Melissa is absolutely someone I would work with again.
        -Sam Phillips, Program Manager Intel Corporation
      • Melissa is very detailed oriented and strives to identify the root cause and implement fixes to drive improvement. She excels in influencing up in management to ensure the org development programs are prioritized. She is easy to work with and is energized to do the right thing first.
