Provide practical support for leaders to propel themselves and their organizations into a more conscious and sustainable future.
The attraction is clear, the ability to get top fight services with no cash. Years ago we did exactly that with a manufacturing company we were starting. The challenge becomes as your company grows your need for service providers change, yet it is very difficult to tell a stock holder why you no longer intend to use their services. It also can get complicated around governance issues,
Ajax is an amazing guy. We first met at a Chamber mixer and quickly developed a friendship. Shortly after we met, he came up with an idea to develop a special networking event which he called the Hudson Valley Pitch Network (www.yourpitchnetwork.com). I committed my company to provide the back office support, so I've been able to watch him take a project from idea to implementation first hand.
Working this closely with Ajax, I have to say that I have not met many people as honest, sincere and dedicated as he is. His enthusiasm is contagious, and he seems to be able to see the end of the project from the beginning. Although I am not formally a client of Ajax's, he he has provided me with valuable business input so I can see the value that he brings to the business community. I am comfortable referring Ajax to my clients because I know that he will commit the same level of expertise and enthusiasm to them as I've witnessed working with him.
The neat part is that, although he and I are about as opposite as two people can be in our social/political views, he is always a gentleman and generally seems to take the "higher road" in our conversations.
To close, I am comfortable recommending Ajax's business consulting services to anyone who needs fresh insight, renewed enthusiasm, and workable ideas for their own businesses.
Ajax is awesome!
He helped me identify core issues to work on in order to attain the success I want in and from my business. Better still, much of his insight applies to my personal life as well.
He always is on time and fully present for our meetings and I always feel better after speaking with him.
Ajax has been extremely supportive in my environmental mission for Greg Barber Company, my environmental printing company.
We have spoken for hours on end about strategy in building my business. His knowledge on computers, data base marketing, hiring, clubs to pursue, people to contact, management skills, etc has helped me build my firm.
I recommend him highly. I have worked with Ajax for over 10 years.

Each time I have used Ajax's services, I have found his ideas useful, even life-changing. If you're looking for advice or a new approach to a business solution Ajax is the ideal candidate to help. He's experienced, supportive, creative, and extremely practical. You can't do better.
Ajax and I worked together for a total of eight years first at Community Prescription Service than as Co-founders of Visionary Health Concepts.
Ajax is a passionate generalist who brings structure and process as a way of thinking that truly drives organizational success. His leadership and commitment to innovation doubled gross revenue and more than doubled profits during his time at CPS. Visionary Health was his idea, and he was very effective at getting our team to focus on complex challenges and in finding ways to overcome them. Ajax gets my highest recommendation in terms of his ability to support you in over coming your business obstacles in a thoughtful and responsible manner.
Ajax Greene was the Keynote Speaker at our annual Small Business Breakfast Forum in Westchester County in October 2013. He did an excellent job making the case for building “localism” in the new green economy. I overheard a number of attendees remark on how he planted the seed with them of actions they could begin to take right away in their own local business communities.
He was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end and I would have him speak for us again in a heartbeat. I look forward to an ongoing collaboration.
Ajax is a truly distinctive guy who has woven together his life experience as a climber, a health care advocate, and a compassionate human being into a set of business consulting skills that feature compassion, clarity and courage. He has challenged himself and so is able to challenge others in a most valuable way.
I have had the pleasure of building a professional relation and friendship with Ajax through our shared affiliation to the Social Venture Network. I have seen Ajax successfully grow his own mission driven business in addition to providing management consulting services to other companies in the SVN network. He has consistently demonstrated his deep commitment to grow businesses with strong social values. He is thoughtful, perceptive, caring and a creative problem solver which are powerful attributes combined with his effective business skills and acumen. It his a real pleasure to work with Ajax.
I have worked with Ajax Greene for over three years. Ajax brings a combination of practical knowledge, compassion and discernment to his business coaching. Ajax helped me begin making the difficult shift from a nonprofit service approach to a social entrepreneurship mindset and model. He is not afraid to challenge my assumptions or behaviors. His holistic approach supported me to sustain life-work balance during the process of planning and launching a new social enterprise. Notably, I now make powerful decisions in a shorter amount of time. If you are ready for meaningful change – not only in your business but in your life – hire Ajax Greene.
Ajax has been a positive presence in Social Venture Network occasions. He is willing and able to facilitate useful network connections that move things forward.
Working together with Ajax developing business deals for our clients and sources has always proven him to be a solid, thorough and supremely honest professional with the knowledge and expertise to make things happen and assure the needs of the deal and the parties are satisfied at all stages. It is a pleasure to work with him!
