His approaches are non-conventional and immediately effective.
The announcement was made in front of a capacity crowd during a three-day event, where Dr. Weiss noted, “These people are readily acknowledged by their world-class peers to be fitting inductees. I’m proud to have been associated with all of these people.” The award inscription included the notation of “…the distinction of being regarded by peers as one of the world leaders in consulting, as evidenced by empirical accomplishments in client results, professional contributions, and intellectual property.”
