Hear from our Fellows


“I invested in Ascent because they deliver the kind of bespoke program I wish I had access to when I was CEO.”

— Jim McCann, Founder 1-800 FLOWERS.COM and Former Chairman, WILLIS TOWERS WATSON 



We believe talent assessment is more than a test.

Every program begins with an assessment and discussion of your dreams, your skills, and your challenges. Or we can do standalone assessments - we’ll work with your team’s needs.
