Jame would certainly be an asset to any organization!” Robert Basmadjian, Owner, Spectrum Marketing & Communications reported to Jamé at Social Integrity Management
“Jamé and I studied non-profit management and community development together. I was impressed by the depth of his thinking and his ability to reduce complex issues into easy to understand constructs.
