Happy Clients

What they're saying

"Dasha is one of the most enthusiastic and intelligent people I have met. She has an uncanny ability to be think as an engineer, but also as a strategic operations and brand management expert. The ability to work from both hemispheres of the brain means that she can articulate intention and action with clarity whether she is speaking to CEO's, Engineers, Scientists or creatives in Marketing and Advertising.

She plays an important role in understanding how to move a company from where it "is" to where it is "going" managing multiple projects at once. As a self-directed leader, she helped organize and move several brands forward under the Micro-Ant group of companies. As the new leader at Strat-Craft she is an excellent choice to bring in for strategic planning, measurement and growth. We will be working with her team with our own clients at the Felice Agency."

Tony Felice

President and Chief Artist & Strategist

"Ms. Tyshlek can bring organization and process to even the most chaotic of situations.

 

She is an expert strategist, competent program manager, and possesses business development/market skills that would be expected of someone having many more years of experience."

Charles McCarrick

President and Chief Scientist 

"In the 3 years that I have worked with Dasha Tyshlek, I have been consistently impressed with her drive, passion, intelligence and ability to bring out the best in others. Dasha is a force mulitplyer and will increase the value and productivity of any operation in which she participates. Dasha is Incredible!

Dasha Tyshlek was the Engineering Manager at MicroAnt when I first began work with her late in 2000, and she moved up to Head of BD at MicroAnt during the time that we have worked together. In her respective roles, Dasha has showne genuine care for our success as a business partner, much better than average customer focus, and she has presented unique solutions to our problems. Dasha is AMAZING to work with."
