"Garrick is a very personable and professional executive. This was akin to a ‘MasterClass’ and Garrick’s coaching was so beneficial. He has great articulation of his ideas and his knowledge and clarity of thought is most impressive. Garrick’s notes and feedback were some of the best I have received and that is taking nothing away from valuable feedback received by others in my previous Roadmap consultations. It was an invaluable experience and one that I would do again specifically with Garrick." - Richard C.
"He read my script so carefully that he didn’t miss a word. His notes were right on track. He spent time talking about what my goals are and how they could happen. Great guy worked very hard to be helpful. Extremely knowledgeable. One of my best experiences with Roadmap." - Dorothy G.
"Garrick was not only complimentary about the script and my writing, but he articulated what made it marketable and what needed improvement (on all levels) while still making me feel like it had promise. He also gave generous, actionable advice to find the right producer(s) which was more than I could've asked for. One of the best investments I made, not only because of his expertise and honesty, but the fact that he genuinely cared about assisting me." - Anonymous Feedback
