Testimonials:

Orinzal Williams, Executive Director at United Way of Greater Atlanta (Ga)

I have the privilege of working with Chris Sizemore for four years. Chris and his company, Creative Mischief, were commissioned to work as marketing consultants for United Way of Greater Atlanta.

Chris has an uncanny way of determining what our marketing needs are and has the capability of developing a sound marketing strategy. As a pragmatic leader and a realist, he can grasp ideas in a holistic manner and still pay attention to minor details. Chris has a well-deserved reputation as someone who is diligent and personable – two qualities that define him completely.

Chris is excellent at setting appropriate expectations and delivering on time with high-quality work. He has made every effort to exceed my expectations. Moreover, in the instance where a mistake was made, Chris was quick to take responsibility and resolve the problem in a highly professional manner. On the whole, I am glad to be working with Chris and cherish the Opportunity Collaboration/relationship

Mitch Reiner, CFP, COO and Investment Advisor at Capital Investment Advisors & Wela Strategies

We originally hired Chris from Creative Mischief to redesign our website. They listened and built a product that we are proud to stand behind even three years later. Chris is progressive with his ideas for staying AHEAD of the curve with regards to technology and business. We should have listened years ago as he was pushing social integration and we will be sure to accept his recommendations as we continue working with Chris and his group.
