What people are saying... 

Susan Bower is an exceptional mentor, trainer and inspiring leader who is dedicated to the development of other professionals. Since the County partnered with Susan’s consulting firm, Eastern Oregon Business Source, employee morale and customers service to the public has never been higher. She developed a robust training program that covers more than a dozen topics, including Ethics, Leadership, Coaching, Customer Service, Conversational Spanish and even how to maximize retirement benefits. Her dedication to professional development and her positive influence in the community make Susan and EOBS an invaluable resource to employers and their businesses.”

Jennifer Blake , HR Director, Umatilla County, Oregon

I first worked with Susan when she spearheaded Pendleton’s “Jump Start” program to revitalize Downtown by offering low- and no-interest loans and grants to small businesses. The East Oregonian subsequently retained Susan to conduct focus groups and surveys with both customers and employees to help us make decisions about publication frequency and distribution. Susan is highly professional, communicates clearly, provides good written summaries of her findings, and excels at connecting people who benefit through knowing each other. I recommend Susan and EOBS without reservation as a trusted business consultancy.

Kathryn Brown, Publisher, East Oregonian

The opportunities Susan Bower and her consulting services have brought to our County make me feel like I’m getting to live in a leadership book—I love it! Her support, insight and knowledge have helped our department live up to our mission and values.

Kim Weissenfluh, Youth Services Division, Umatilla County Community Justice, Oregon

Susan Bower has the ability to make complicated issues manageable. The professional skills she brings to the table result in comprehensive solutions to professional development and individual growth. I would personally call her the ‘Solution Czar’!

Paul Chalmers, Director of Taxation and Assesment, Umatilla County, Oregon

Eastern Oregon Business Source provided invaluable counsel as the Historical Society developed personnel policies and grant writing guidelines. Founder/CEO Susan Bower is a consummate professional who possesses a unique leadership capability to draw people to the table for friendly and diplomatic dialogue despite the diversity of personalities and opinions represented on the Board.

Thomas Winn, President, Umatilla County Historical Society

Susan Bower was brought in to facilitate a series of more than a dozen meetings for a nonprofit board of directors on which I served. As we worked on a long-range strategic plan, Susan kept us on-task and provided a neutral leadership role that diplomatically held us accountable to our objectives. I would recommend Susan and Eastern Oregon Business Source without reservation to companies and organizations that want to accomplish a lot of hard strategic work in an efficient, amicable manner.
