"I contacted SLIC Consulting based on recommendations and references of professional colleagues approximately 15 months ago to assist in the launch of a new company I was forming in the Optical Polymers market. Based on initial discussions with Michel Prive’, I was confident that SLIC and Michel fit the requirements that I was looking for in establishing this new company while I maintained my current role as President of E3 Displays LLC. Now 15 months later, SLIC has been a key contributor in the establishment of Phoenix Optical Polymers which was established in 2021. SLIC’s owner Michel Prive’ personally was instrumental in the multiple areas of the establishment of the company. Michel developed an excellent plan that included fundamental items to launch a new company that included: a) Refinement and polishing of a business plan, b) marketing analysis for the Phoenix Optical Polymers target market c) a list of potential target customers including key contacts d) overall time line of items needed to be completed for launch of the new company and e) staying in close contact with the technology development team to sync up testing and development with target date launch of Sales engagement with the customers. I have also witnessed Michel develop very strategic and tactical Sales and Marketing plans that will accelerate Phoenix Optical Polymers launch into the market of optical polymers. SLIC and Michel have been very valuable contributors in this journey of technology and corporate launch of Phoenix Optical Polymers, therefore I whole heartly would recommend SLIC and Michel in a host of areas of his expertise that include Sales and Marketing, both Strategic and Tactical, Business Plans, Project Plans, Technology Management, and Program Management.

"I had the pleasure of working with Michel during our time at Teledyne. I've been impressed with his intellect, dedication, and drive to create a high-performing team. I witnessed firsthand how Michel took a sales team from average to exceptional performance -- by setting clear goals, the right incentives, and accountability. Another trait I appreciated of Michel is his straight-shooting style of communication, both internally and externally. He is an exceptional leader. I am confident that Michel will add value to any organization he joins or supports"

"I worked with Michel several times during the last 25 years. I always go back to him for external help not only it is a pleasure to deal with him, but it is because he is a real professional who deliver. I now lead the Sales organization at the Agilink Group, who recently acquired a specialized wire and cable manufacturer, I wanted to size the North American market, understand local applications, players, prospects and clients and potential channel to sell this product in USA/ Canada. Michel came out with a clear proposal, a plan with deliverables and schedule, and as usual exceeded the expected results on time and on budget. His expertise and processes made it easy for us to take the right decision on our group strategy in North America. Michel listens well. He is curious and help to understand your needs and what you want to achieve. His advice is precious. Michel saved us time and money to understand the local market and timing to deliver our strategic plan. I fully trust Michel to think and act for or on behalf of his client’s benefits in the upmost ethical and discretional manners. I look forward to work with Michel again. I highly recommend him to lead you to success. "
