Jack's style caught my attention - not stuffy, not uptight, not rigid. There was an approachability about him, a comfort, almost a casual feel - but at the same time, the casualness was not to be mistaken for passivity. Anything but! Everything was completely professional. It was obvious he was extremely intelligent - not in a robotic, regurgitation of information kind of way. But in a real thinking kind of way, assessing, analyzing. Again, this is what made me think the Delehey College Consulting program was something unique.
Once we began, I could tell the program was different because it seemed Jack created it based on intelligence, common sense, and experience. He wasn't following some formula. All the other companies look the same and do the same - stuffy, buttoned up people who I wasn’t convinced, at the end of the day, knew anything extra.
I also got from that first conversation that Jack was committed and dedicated, he was as light as he was serious. He was also optimistic, positive and complimentary. Again, never in a fake way or placating way, but in a genuine way. There was something refreshingly disarming about his openness and honesty; coupled with his straightforwardness, this resulted in both Melina and I liking him, trusting him, and respecting him (off the bat!). That doesn’t happen too often in our world!
Lastly, it was apparent that, yes, while perhaps a business at the end of the day, Jack also seemed to really care, he really wanted to help. Thanks to Jack, my daughter, Melina was accepted to her dream school, Vanderbilt University and we couldn't be happier!
