An African Angel Arrives

    GET VOCal....

"Employee communications is one of Doug Sprei's great strengths. To raise employee awareness of customer concerns, he conceived an innovative Voice of the Customer program --- bringing executives from Nortel's major customers to speak directly to the employees who designed products used in the customers' networks. Our business unit executives were thrilled with the program. Employees got better insight into customer needs, and a new channel was opened for Nortel's sales team to dialogue with customers. The program proved so successful that several other business units adopted it."

Ive known Doug professionally for about seven years. He excels at building teams, understanding how companies and people work and instilling a positive force into any workplace. He also genuinely cares about the success of the people who work alongside him and the success of the organization. Doug's an excellent writer who knows all sides of communications and can build plans and execute tactics that complement each other and drive results. I admire his ability to seek out knowledge, learn new technologies and apply those learnings to the organizations he serves.
