Meet the team

We’re not your typical consultants—parachuting in, spouting jargon and offering templated solutions from some other client’s long-ago problems.

We listen first. We speak your language. We figure out your specific challenges and apply solutions that will work—for you, in today’s world. After all, we’ve been in the trenches ourselves.

The genesis of all this? Every time Mark Ragan or Jim Ylisela conducted a workshop or spoke at a Ragan conference, someone in the audience (often several someones) would ask: “Can you come to my organization and help us with that?” Well, sure. That’s why Mark and Jim created Ragan Consulting Group and then invited their friends (who happen to be top consultants in their respective fields) to join them.

The result is the brilliant array of communications talent you see here. Check out our consulting chops below.
