We’re a lot smarter now than when we were when we started this project. It gives us the information we need to move forward. The town and the taxpayers got their money’s worth. We feel like this study and and the report is a great road map for the future of Nashville.

Bob Kirlin, President, Nashville Town Council


We wanted to have outside assistance to guide our planning process to maximize input from all areas of our company. This has been accomplished with our planning session and culminated with the Summary Report. We now have a road map to guide our efforts. Thanks to SDG, Basiloid Products has a plan to help us reach our goals.

As the staff for the Southern Indiana Rural Development Project, over the years SDG has provided crucial support for our committees and projects. They have consistently given us our money’s worth when it comes to administering the organization. They’ve done a great job in raising funds for our projects, too.

SDG did a great job for the Wabash Valley. SDG listened, surveyed the community, conducted focus groups and kept us all on task. When all the data collection was complete they provided us with a concise action plan and grant proposal. All this in just 6 months!!! SDG Consulting has been wonderful to work with.

From our initial contact with Brian O’Neill and SDG, I have been impressed with their professionalism and their ability to work with a diverse group of community leaders. I appreciated the leadership and experience of SDG, as well as their availability whenever help was needed – all with a friendly, personal touch. The finished products from the planning process are thorough and professional reports that Miami County will be using for years to come. Thank you, Brian, and SDG for providing us with such practical tools to better our community!

It’s been a real pleasure working with Strategic Development Group out of Bloomington. They are not trying to sell big city ideas to us country folk. They are helping us find ways to make it work for us.

Most consultants are very unresponsive; they take stuff off the shelf and make it one-size-fits-all. SDG doesn’t do that. We got a tailor made product that a 99.9% reflection of what we asked for.
