"I have worked with Amelia Thornton for the past ten years on a host of projects ranging from international ocean conservation strategy to team development. As consultant, coach and trusted advisor, she has been invaluable in helping me shape the strategic direction of the National Aquarium and grow an executive leadership team that is second to none. She has taught us to ask the tough questions, see issues from each other’s perspective, and always keep our values at the foundation of critical decisions. Without Amelia’s involvement and counsel, I do not believe we would have been able to enjoy the significant successes that we have to date—and will undoubtedly celebrate in the future."
John Racanelli, CEO National Aquarium
“The Thornton Group brought a level of expertise and professionalism that our church desperately needed. Amelia’s ability to help us see the big picture, align our staff, and then have the tools to fulfill our mission was the best I have ever experienced.”
Chip Ingram, CEO, Living on the Edge, Senior Pastor, Venture Christian Church
"I engaged Amelia Thornton to help our senior management team achieve even greater success to solidify and grow our position as the premier public broadcaster and media company in the nation. Her work with us over the past year has taken us through team building and improved communication skills processes that are paying off handsomely. NCPB has just concluded the most successful year in its history. Thanks to Amelia's good work with our 'first team', we are well positioned to deal with today's challenging economic and business climate in an ever changing media environment.
Jeff Clarke, President & CEO Northern California Public Broadcasting, Inc.

The tools she has taught me have changed my style of management, made our meeting more productive, and improved communication across the organization."
