What Our Members Say

Joanne Goss

Joanne Goss

“Being a member of the Hilltop Partner network has been a great experience for me.  What makes Hilltop unique is the support and guidance they provide to their members to ensure success. HPN has helped me find new consulting engagements when I want them and has allowed me to maintain the flexibility that is important to me at this stage in my career. I also had the chance to represent the voice of the membership as part of the HPN Member Council. I know that HPN offers real benefits to experienced consultants because it was developed and designed with us in mind.”

Independent Consultant

Chris Dunn

“HPN supports my consultancy by identifying specific opportunities with enough lead time so I can easily transition from completing one engagement and starting a new one without having a gap – it keeps my income consistent, stable, and predictable.”

“HPN is in a class of their own; their well-connected executive team provides great opportunities that allow Iron Fox to compete in markets much more quickly than we would have without their support. HPN’s strengths lie in pulling teams of contractors together to achieve successes greater than the sum of their parts.”

John Buckley

“Having worked in both corporate and independent consulting for over 40 years, I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism and collegial behavior of Hilltop. I continue to be impressed with how attentive and effective Hilltop is in understanding and reacting to the needs of the independent consultant across the full spectrum of activities from recruitment, support, professional development, placement, and business matters. Clearly one of the best, if not the best, consulting group I have worked with.”

“Working with Hilltop is fantastic and refreshing. The team is very supportive and knowledgeable and best of all, completely ethical. Their concept is fully transparent which immediately builds trust, both with us consultants and with the customer. We are very happy to be part of the Hilltop Partner Network and we hope our relationship continues for many years to come. Thank you, Hilltop team, for setting up this great concept!!”
