Clients Testimonials

Annette Rahael has been instrumental in improving the lines of communication among family members who work in our medium sized business (250 employees). She has also set up a written family charter  that maps out a clear path with specific rules for next generation’s eligibility to join the business.

Overall, the family unit and business unit, and the interrelation between the two are now better understood by all parties. Most importantly, there is a framework to deal with conflicts or misconception that can arise in any vibrant family business.

"Working with Annette Rahael gave us forum to have open and frank discussions and opportunity to look inward at ourselves to understand the problems/shortcomings, particularly in communicating with each other.  Having an unbiased, firm and practical arbiter creates opportunity for solutions and resolutions to various problems.


The ease at which discussions can be had opens individuals up for honest communication.

Her integrity and confidentiality are admirable."
