Testimonials

Lynda Bauer
Strategist

Gilbert Hammer’s ease in identifying new strategic business
opportunities through the intersection of technologies was evident in
the Vid Therapy Pro partnership. Functioning as the business
principal with a health care provider, Gilbert directed marketplace
strategy and evangelized the new offering. As a consultant, I
participated in a series of business planning sessions with Gilbert
for the new service-as-software platform to deliver videos to patients with real-time compliance through their mobile devices.

Gilbert’s agility in shifting priorities with new information derived from a disciplined approach to marketplace analysis was more evidence of his inherent multi-platform orientation as both bottom line business developer and creative visionary.

Matthew Ross
Web Designer / Developer / Educator

A devoted and highly dependable colleague, Gilbert was always there to manage production shoots or lend a hand at other encoding projects. He works well in high stress projects or when there is no room for error. During tough times, Gilbert was there to learn any new process or software program used to help out the rest of the production team. He is a planner. Gilbert is a team player I would work with Gilbert on anything again, if the opportunity arose. He is a pleasure to work with and would be an asset to any team.
