More about Will Holmes
"Will serves as Mentor in Residence for The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School's Community Consulting Lab. Will did a phenomenal job teaching and guiding our business students as they worked with small business owners in Baltimore. He brought passion, professionalism and tested business expertise to our students every time he met with them. They are fortunate to learn from him and the Carey Business School is proud to partner with him. I would recommend partnering with Will on any project or venture. He will be prepared, excited and eager to help you and your organization improve and get results." 
- M. Doyle, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School
"Will Holmes is a coach's coach. Not only has he guided numerous businesses in the Baltimore area and abroad, but I know from working in the same circles that his best practices have groomed and guided many of us who are not coaches but find ourselves in situations and jobs that require us to teach, motivate and inspire others. Will and his team at WHC have the experience and connections to help you grow your business. Talent alone does not make winners. There is a reason why professional sports teams have coaches. It’s not because they don’t know how to play the game, it’s because we all need someone to help us craft a plan and remind us when we stray from it. If you and your team could use some help crafting your plan and sticking to it, I would suggest you give Will a call.."
- J. Peterson, M&T Bank
"I would like to express my thanks and my strong recommendation of this excellent program. I also have the highest respect and admiration of the excellent job performed by Will Holmes, my Business Mentor.  He presented to and coached my cohort with great enthusiasm and an engaging approach.  It takes someone with unique talent to teach commercialization to such a varied group of research professionals.”
