“It’s tough to put into words but Tony did Move us, Inspire us and Wow us with his passion for Culture and having an impact on people’s lives.  It’s refreshing to talk with another business owner that understands being a family business.  Tony was able to share many real examples of how he and the rest of the leaders at Roma lead their business, deal with issues, and navigate through change.  Shifting Company Culture can be a very daunting task but Tony, Olga and Olivia opened their doors to us to see how they went about doing it.  Forever grateful”

“Tony is a very down to earth kind of person, someone who is willing to share his experiences in business in order to help out someone else. I connected with him on LinkedIn and reached out to him for business advise… just his willingness to help out someone he’s never met is amazing.

How I would describe good leadership is “Selflessly Leading with Love” and Tony exemplifies that. He’s very aligned with who I am and my values and that is great.”

My position is about 80% coaching, where I help the other executives to drive culture. That’s why I was so impressed to come and experience what Tony is doing on a day-to-day basis and to hear about the changes and transformation.

I appreciated that I was able to see the journey and hear about how it was before and that it’s not done yet. It just feels great. I believe that culture is vibe. It’s something that you can feel when you walk in and you can feel that something special is happening at Roma!

“I feel tremendously privileged to have spent a couple of hours experiencing the Roma culture. Tony and the rest of the team are truly inspirational. Although already a big believer in positive culture being the critical component in business success, I left Roma after our tour realizing that culture is the key ingredient to being a true game changer. Thanks so much to the entire team for opening up and letting us be a part of Roma, even for a couple of hours. Very special indeed!”
