In Their Own Words
“Phillip delivered on our GO-Biz incentives. Agilent recently won its sixth ETP contract and are applying for CAEATFA. He was able to navigate the complex changing government rules with expertise and built his services around a win-win arrangement. Without Phillip, we probably would have not received any funding. He guided from concept, application, presentation, implementation and close-out. The success of the six ETP contracts and the CAEATFA opportunity is a direct result of his firm’s leadership, technical knowledge, good humor, rock-hard ethics, and industry experience.”
“Herrera & Company brought us the idea of partnering with ETP and we were skeptical at first. Phil and his team were the real pro’s in aligning our training tracking systems for ETP reporting. Once we passed our first ETP review it was smooth sailing. Phil was the absolute best in the State for developing our ETP monies. The learning curve for submitting a strong application was steep and treacherous. It was his knowledge, connections, and great work that made the difference. I highly recommend him if you’re thinking about the ETP opportunity. You will not be disappointed.”
“I worked with Phillip, president of Herrera & Company, on one of the three ETP projects I managed while working at Seagate Technology as a training manager. The project involved multi sites and functional groups. Herrera & Company was excellent at helping Seagate satisfy ETP electronic record keeping and other requirements. Phillip has expert knowledge of ETP and provided excellent services. He was very responsive and pleasant to work with.”
“After comparing ETP consultants, Herrera & Company was chosen because of his thouroughness and proven success. Phil and his team were professional in aligning our training tracking systems for ETP reporting–especially in our current, second contract where we collaborated creatively to improve upon our time tracking and reporting. Phil is the best in the State for developing ETP contract proposals and targeted monies plans. Thanks to our partnership and first contract accomplishments, we quickly earned an early position among the first to get a second contract. His guidance ensured we submitted a strong application. It was his knowledge, connections, and great work that made the abolute difference. I highly recommend Herrera & Company if you’re thinking about the ETP opportunity. You will not be disappointed.”
“Herrera & Company delivered development, implementation, and program administration services for our ETP agreement. Phillip is a top-notch professional who brings in-depth knowledge of how the ETP process works. Phillip also is a highly ethical and hardworking partner, who does all the “heavy lifting” himself. He is truly invested in his customer’s success. Herrera & Company delivers results and are easy to work with. I highly recommend them to anybody who is interested in ETP.”
“Phillip was Gilead’s ETP consultant for many years, winning four consecutive ETP contracts for over $15 million in total funding. He’s a real pro when it comes to working with ETP staff and his understanding of the program made the whole process less complicated. Outsourcing the ETP was by far the most logical alternative for Gilead and Phil’s firm provided the knowledge, resources and business systems to integrate Gilead’s learning management systems into ETP requirements. The ETP learning curve is steep and we made the right choice in hiring Herrera & Company.”
