“Julie is an incredible Instructional Designer! I brought her in on several projects to deliver comprehensive hourly training for a restaurant company (On the Border). The result was absolutely amazing! She worked with us to create structure, guidelines and discipline which significantly impacted behavior change. As a result, our business metrics grew dramatically. We drove hospitality scores through the roof and I owe it all to Julie Stark’s innate ability to collaborate and create a culture of effective learning. Her quality of work is uncompromising and her creativity will challenge you to 'think outside the box'."

From listening intently when doing a needs assessment, to asking the critical questions and delivering learner- centered solutions, Julie’s standards are high and on target. Not only is she a lifelong learner, but she is a fabulous teacher. Rarely do I walk away from a conversation with Julie where I haven’t learned something new. When you hire The Stark Solution, be prepared to be impressed.”
