Beginning in 2013, Corral Consulting worked alongside Infinity Business Solutions to help evaluate Mastering Business Growth (MBG), an innovative and ground breaking training series sponsored by the Southern California Gas Company’s (SoCalGas ) Supplier Diversity Department. The Supplier Diversity Department is charged with identifying, contracting, and educating Diverse Business Enterprises (i.e. women, minority, service-disabled, and veteran-owned businesses) to successfully secure contracts with SoCalGas.
MBG is a ten-part, modular training series conducted in San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties that targets Diverse Business Enterprises with the potential to serve SoCalGas as well as other large corporations and utilities.
Corral Consulting’s first step was to develop an evaluation methodology that would not only inform SoCalGas on MBG’s success, but communicate the new program’s value and impact to the California Public Utilities Commission. Corral Consulting drafted evaluation questions and methodology, updated existing data collection tools and surveys, and provided Infinity Business Solutions with technical assistance to execute the evaluation.
Once the data was collected, Corral Consulting lead the data analysis, produced data findings, and graphs, and delivered reports that updated SoCalGas on MBG’s effectiveness. Furthermore, Corral Consulting is pleased to announce that SocalGas refunded MBG for 2014 and starting this March, the training series will initiate again.
Lily Otieno, President and CEO of Infinity Business Solutions , explains the benefits of working with Corral Consulting, “It is great working with Richard, he is very professional and a pleasure to work with. He has excellent knowledge in designing surveys, and most importantly, he understands the clients’ requests and implements them flawlessly.”
