Most people will “play it safe” when making recommendations. They don't want to risk looking foolish with a recommendation that doesn't measure up at some point in the future.
So it's safer to be negative or to say nothing. Therefore, we’re very grateful for the following list of positive comments and rare letters from CEOs:
“Steven Sessions is one of Houston’s premier branding experts, a leader in the field.” –Laurel Brubaker Calkins, Houston Business Journal
“Sessions has become one of the most respected branding experts in the nation.” –Carol Everingham, Houston Post

“Sessions combines a researcher’s thoroughness with natural artistic talent.” –Vivienne Heines, Houston Chronicle
"Steven was hired to revamp our early stage company's branding after a couple aborted attempts to hire outside designers. He was quickly able to come up with a cost-effective strategy, which is also a good foundation for future branding efforts. His work is clever, yet clean and professional.
