Marcos is fantastic. He listens carefully to your team and wants to make sure he pin points everyone's ideas and opinions---this is so that he can contribute more effectively. Overall, our conversations are always smooth and lead to beneficial feedback. With his counsel, we feel more oriented and better positioned to move forward. The advice he gives is not broad, it's specific and to the point. We like this. Our relationship is "no bullshit" -- this is something we established at the beginning; in other words, we don't keep things from each other, we say things as we see them, and we respect each other. Because of this, our meetings are efficient and effective. I highly recommend him.
Marcos is competent, helpful and pleasant to talk with. I will collaborate again with him in the future and I recommend him to everyone who needs a quick insightful consultation.
