Working with our clients is our passion

They are a rare breed of people, who see in others what they don’t yet see in themselves. We take our work seriously and give each group the attention they deserve.  We understand the value of the opportunity and work tirelessly to make each moment count.

Through our programs, we’ve had the pleasure of influencing hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, supporting groups as small as 30 and as large as 4,000. That’s global impact. And it feels great. Our clients range from Jr. High and High School leadership classes and small independent programs to Fortune 500 Mega corporations. Clients enable us to spend our days making a living doing what we love. And to actualize our personal and professional missions. Clients rule. If you don’t have any, go get yourself some. We’ve worked with the following fabulous schools and organizations:

TESTIMONIALS

“The energy you inspire is powerful and contagious.”
— Debra Lichstein, Healing Odyssey

My goal for Healing Odyssey was ritualistically to move myself past breast cancer.
Judy Davison, Healing Odyssey

Like always, it was a great way to start off our Student Government retreat.
Jerad Slagle, Granite Bay High School

I really appreciate everything you do for us and for your patience.
Angie Shelton, Focus on the Future

You guys run a great organization and the heart behind it is what sets you guys above the rest.
Dana Evans

These skills are so important, and I don’t think I would have ever learned them or acknowledged them without your help, and think these skills are important for every one to learn.
Abbey, Emma Wilson School

Odyssey is the ideal partner to organize and execute this kind of an ambitious undertaking that brings civic organizations and Claremont Graduate University together to benefit the children of Claremont.
Cornelis A. de Kluyver, Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University

 Today I felt as though these people will continue to support me all through the year. That I will be able to be myself around them no matter the situation.
Jennifer, Granite Bay High School

There is so much valuable information presented in these three days, I will be able to utilize it in every aspect of my job.
International trainer Phelps Dodge Corp

Yesterday, I felt like we were all a part of one huge clique or group. No one was excluded, it was as if we had never had problems getting along, everyone was treated with respect and each person worked to help everyone succeed.
Menlo-Atherton High School

Thank you for putting on such a great program for our team! We had a ton of fun and I think everyone learned a lot about themselves and the team! Thanks again, I really appreciate everything you did for our team! Fight on!
USC Women’s Swimming & Diving Team

I felt very trusting today, as I knew others trusted me in turn. Also, I felt that my efforts were worthwhile because people recognized my efforts whenever we completed an activity.
Evergreen College

This is a wonderful idea. It brings people together, it’s fun, and the end result is very useful.
in the Los Angeles Times after participating in a Helping Odyssey

We have come a long way in 3 years, and are building a strong foundation for our students to take the Odyssey experience to the next level.
Chris Reitan, Galena City School District – Alaska

This experience is one they won’t forget.
Kelly Sears, Boys and Girls Club of Omaha

Extremely professional and effective.
Gabriel Mesa, Amgen – UCLA Executive MBA program

‘Very professional and well directed.’
Dan Greene, UCLA – Executive MBA program

“The last couple of days were unforgettable, inspiring, and truly thought provoking.”
Richard Cracraft, UCLA Executive MBA program

"Seeing the faces of the kids – and the adults too – when they receive the bikes was priceless."
Bob Glotch, Boys and Girls Club of San Leandro – Saturn Helping Odyssey

"I would like to thank you for leading me through the exciting day of phenomonal activities and the most enjoyable atmostphere I've ever had with kids from school. I appreciate your awareness of safety and reliability."   - Laura Brill (Rogers Middle School) 

"I learned to trust my peers and to use teamwork"   -Katie Dowty (Student Participant) 

"I truly believe that was one of the greatest days of my life. I learned to leap out of my comfort zone and have someone to be there for me after"   - Christina Behrens (2nd time Ropes Course Student Participant)

As for the main benefits/take-aways, it’s hard to narrow it down to a few. Of course there were huge ‘Aha’s” for the group with regard to thinking outside the box and creativity. But there was also a vastly increased level of team cohesiveness. We really had an opportunity to know each other better and to have some fun together in a way that increases our commitment to work together effectively. But the biggest payoff of all was the combined feeling of having accomplished something with such an impact to people around the world. Knowing that we actually made a significant positive difference in the lives of people who so badly need it, was astonishing! Jean E. Jean Deering, AVP Learning & Development Manager BD/SBS L&D Wells Fargo Bank.
Helping Hands –  Wells Fargo

I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you for the outstanding day we had yesterday.
Gretchan Chismar , US Payroll Manager, Honeywell

The entire room including me was in tears. It was just an awesome experience and all of the managers involved just loved it. I know it did a great thing for our company and the kids.
William Stanley, Nuerorscience Distirict Manager, Solvay Pharmaceuticals

A sincere “Thank You” for providing us with such an emotional and enlightening experience last Thursday afternoon. Absolutely one of the best “training” events I have had in my career. I have already related the experience and lesson learned to numerous people, both internal and external to Qualcomm. I am sure I will be talking about this most memorable episode for quite some time.   What an impact – Thank you!
Ty Stewart, Qualcomm

“I must say that I may not be able to top the experience we had with Odyssey.”
Kristen Mucleroy, Fiberlink Communications

I cannot begin to tell you how valuable this event was for our Team.
Karen L. Henry, Merck & Co., Inc.

‘You and the Odyssey team engaged and inspired the OGC in a way they had never experienced before’
Thank you, Merrill Lynch

This isthe most powerful customer service program I have ever attended!”
James Terry, Sr. Leadership Team, Honeywell

This unique event brought us closer together on many levels, especially as partners in delivering value to our clients.
Merrill Lynch

-Just want you to know that there hasn’t been ANY negative feedback (out of 200 participants) which is rare with this group, so consider it a huge success on our end, as well as yours.

The energy you inspire is powerful and contagious.
Debra Lichstein, Healing Odyssey
