Praise from Past Participants:

“This was a really amazing group that radiated good vibes, good energy and good momentum. Everybody contributed great experiences coming from different parts of the world and different walks of life. This was both informative and active, “stepping into the realm,” and though I was intimidated at the start it forced me to get out there and was a great departure point to get started. I got everything that I desired to get from this course.” – Max

“It has been a blessing to join this group, especially the peer support that is shared throughout the 5 weeks. Matt and Ryan were so helpful and generous in sharing their experience and resources throughout the course.  It’s great to know that in different corners of the world people are passionate in driving positive change through the B Corp movement.” – Natalie

“Ryan has been a valuable and effective consultant for Ben & Jerry’s in helping us to benchmark key aspects of our supply chain. Ryan is great to work with; he is personable, professional, and responsive. We look forward to continuing our work with Ryan in the future–not only because he provides value in the space of “measuring what matters,” but because Ryan’s work supports the growing movement of businesses that are aspiring to be better for the world.”

– Cheryl Pinto, Ben & Jerry’s

“Ryan’s guidance through B Corp certification was incredibly worthwhile and valuable. Going through the B Corp certification process helped us identify gaps in items like our employee handbook, our local community engagement efforts, and how we communicate our environmental programs to our stakeholders. We are now the first B Corp-certified olive oil company in the United States, and the first B Corp-certified wine business in California. I highly recommend using his services.”

– Samantha Dorsey, McEvoy Ranch

“Conscious Brands assisted with Genuine Health’s B Corp certification, making it a pleasurable and quick process. From their excellent kick-off meeting and planning tools to the weekly check-in calls, Conscious Brands was clear, helpful, supportive and great to work with. Their quick turnaround, willingness to go the extra mile, enthusiasm and expertise was very much appreciated and made the hard work a lot of fun. In fact Conscious Brands was so helpful that we were one of the fastest B Corp certifications! Thank you Conscious Brands for being truly conscious of what matters most, both in the universe and in business.”

– Tara Stubensey, Genuine Health

“In working with Conscious Brands on our B Corp certification we were not only provided with attentive and genuine service, but truly felt as if we had a partner through the entire process. They are outstanding communicators that worked diligently with us to ensure we understood every step of the process. Their energy, organization and sincere commitment to sustainable business practices helped motivate and guide us along as we worked together to achieve our goal. So impressed by that to this day we continue to work together on various initiatives – these guys really are the very best at what they do.”

– Shaun Daniels, Nature’s Fare Markets

“I had been watching the B Corp movement from a distance for several years.  When I wanted to take a deeper dive I turned to the pioneers of B Corp consulting, and all around B Corp experts, Ryan Honeyman and Matt Mayer.  After a highly positive experience as part of a virtual learning group, I decided to continue on with their advisory services in order to build out an in-depth specialization in helping companies on their B Corp journey.  Matt and Ryan have both proven to be exceptional strategic advisors and coaches.  They are generous with their extensive knowledge and unique experience and constantly seek new ways to add value for their clients.  I would enthusiastically recommend Ryan or Matt to anyone looking for specific expertise related to B Corps or sustainability consulting more widely.”
