“I worked with Mary Esteves and Nova consulting for a number of years for business consulting and senior leadership development. The results we achieved with her efforts were outstanding with a high business impact, outstanding quality and great value. Mary’s approach was creative, thoughtful and spot on for the needs of our business. Mary is a person of high integrity and a pleasure to work with.”
