Aaron Bare presented and facilitated a dialogue on “Disruption Influences on Leadership and Innovation” to our annual corporate strategic planning retreat. Aaron’s presentation style is comfortable and conversational, yet provocative and stimulating. His interaction with our team left us full of ideas, and wanting more! Our firm is committed to deploying our “energy and ideas for a better world”. Aaron talked about how “disruption is innovative leaders being the change they see in the world.” We have embraced his ideas and are using them to bring as we seek to inspire positive social change and create a better world.
We highly endorse Aaron as an outstanding presenter, thinker, entrepreneur, and innovator.

I had the opportunity to work with Aaron on multiple projects during our EMBA program. Aaron immediately stood out as an individual with innovative ideas, exemplary business acumen, and a great knowledge of social media. Aaron has always taken the time to share his wealth of knowledge with the members of our class and has inspired the creation of entrepreneurial ventures because of it. I highly recommend Aaron Bare.

Aaron is a true networker. He is continuously striving to connect people for mutual benefit in a friendly and positive way. His efforts extend the people he works with and creates new opportunities for many. I am happy to have Aaron Bare in my personal and business network.
Creative Thinking for Exceptional Businesses
Aaron has the ability to take a complex subject (social media) and break it down to understandable terms (for a 50 year old). I respect not only his expertise in social media but the fact that he brings a wealth of experience from the staffing industry – he “gets” what Duffy does and is effectively massaging the language so potential customers will understand immediately what recruiting research is.
Aaron helped Simply Servers develop hiring strategies that helped us recruit quality employees for our unique business model. Then he paired that with the newly formed Jobing TV segment without his help and the help of the Jobing.com team. Aaron is a great at making connections and solidifying relationships!

Aaron Bare’s insightful intellect helps audiences better understand the disruptive nature of social media and the negative and positive impacts on their lives. His insights allow them to leave with a deeper understanding of the challenges they face in these rapidly changing times and the tools and resources necessary to not only compete, but succeed!
MicroAge and WPO Disruption Chair
I invited Aaron to present to a ‘C’ Level group of executives on Disruption and its impact on business models and leadership. He succeeded in making a number of us uncomfortable with both the speed and scope of change across a broad swath of hard product and digital verticals. Aaron was knowledgeable, engaging, balanced and gave our group many compelling examples of the forces driving business model challenges, along with some solutions derived from creative adaptation. Fast decisions, trial and error pivots and business model changes (while also limiting the risks of huge bets), along with technologies ‘simplifying’ force offered important insights for our group and particularly powerful takeaways.

I have had the pleasure to know Aaron for several years and finally see him at work providing expert guidance and services to one of my businesses. His knowledge and expertise is unsurpassed and he is very enjoyable to work with on a project.
The Idea Gardener LLC
Aaron was employed by our Credit Union Board of Directors to assist in the process of choosing a new name for our organization. We were evaluating 3 different organizations to assist in this process and choose Complete Strategies. He was very professional and knowledgeable in all facets of the process. I would highly recommend him his work to others.

Aaron redefines time and energy every day. He has the ability to implement when others are just thinking about reading more on an idea. He is a true pioneer that has courage and spirit to venture into the unknown; it is these qualities that make him a superb entrepreneur and leader.

In addition to his boundless energy for creation he sees connections between social networking, marketing and sales that drive efficiencies in turning leads into customers. I would say that he is a genius in the social marketing area.

Aaron spoke to a global growth conference for the Russian Science Technology and Education Center and was extremely effective in communicating his ideas about marketing online. I enjoyed his fresh take on internet searching and how to prepare online information both to be found and to impress the right audience.
Growth Nation and The Global Chamber
Aaron Bare developed a Custom Disruptive Workshop for Coca-Cola’s Largest Cross-Functional customer team. This 3-day program included disruptive innovation sessions, how best to organize disruption, and used change to align the entire team on accountabilities & goals that would drive results.
He was able to disrupt the way the organization was traditionally thinking by introducing several techniques that will enable the team to become change agents, while deploying several new meaningful projects that will drive the team’s collaboration, team strengths, and focus based on the customer & Coca-Cola’s objectives.
He provided an environment that allowed our associates to understand the speed of change, the skills & capabilities required to be an integral part of our customer’s growth, and gained the alignment of the team to commit to each other to be their ‘best’. It was a huge home run for our team and the outside thinking was just what we needed….

There are very few actual movers and shakers with a vested interest in the Phoenix community who have a solid intelligent background and grasp on business at a high level. Aaron is one of those rare individuals. I met Aaron many years ago on a plane and was impressed from the start. I have had the pleasure of working with him throughout the years on projects, and have also had clients and colleagues who have had the same pleasure with amazing results. Aaron is top notch!
