‘On the record’ testimonials

From John Cummings, Chief Marketing Officer, i2 Technologies, Inc., Dallas:

“i2's Supply Chain Leader magazine has been a fantastic thought-leadership vehicle for us and, more importantly, a great lead-generation tool. It would not have been possible for us to create a quality publication like SCL without external help. Cooper Communications stepped in and provided exactly what we needed to get the program started and now is a valuable partner for us going forward.”

From Theodore Phelps, President, Phelps Consulting Group, Los Angeles:

“Vikki is a rare breed these days. She does exactly what she says she will do, delivers exactly what she promises exactly when she promises it. She is exactly the one I want to work with when I need marketing and promotional materials for my firm.”

From Michael E. McGrath, cofounder of PRTM (, founder and chairman of the board of Integrated Development Enterprise (, and former CEO of i2 Technologies:

"It's always difficult to find someone who can combine strategic thinking, creativity, and the ability to get things done. Vikki is that difficult-to-find person. She gets beyond the creative ideas to make them real."

From Shoshanah Cohen and Joseph Roussel, authors, Strategic Supply Chain Management: The 5 Disciplines for Top Performance (McGraw-Hill, 2005), PRTM, Mountain View:

“Victoria Cooper, our director of corporate communications at PRTM, led this book project from start to finish, establishing an early vision for its structure and content, and integrating all the strands of the book. She also conducted many of the interviews for the profiles of Eli Lilly, Autoliv, Avon, Owens Corning, the U.S. Dept. of Defense, General Motors, and Seagate Technology found in the book.”

From Anthony Ipsaro, author, White Men, Women & Minorities in the Changing Work Force (Meridian Associates, 1997), Denver:

“When I began to see that my presentation schedule would not permit the creation of the book frequently requested by seminar participants, I knew I needed an infusion of assistance from editors, writers, and researchers. I received the help I was looking for from Victoria Cooper, a long-time publications editor and writer, and her group. Besides serving as an editor and project manager, she conducted numerous interviews with individuals who had taken a seminar … She also did a unique job of probing me for more clarity on some of the ideas found in this book.”

From Tim Baskerville, President, Media Service Group, Los Angeles:

“Vikki has a rare ability to work with people at all levels to communicate complex ideas—and make friends doing so.”

From Joe Lo, Director, PRTM, Mountain View:

“Vikki was responsible for marketing communications for PRTM worldwide. She worked with our consulting staff in the U.S., Asia, and Europe to produce our website, quarterly magazine, sales collateral, and all external marketing materials. She was creative, dependable, and a pleasure to work with.”

From Governor Scott McCallum, President and CEO, Aidmatrix Foundation, Dallas:

“When we weren't happy with either the layout or the 'sell' in our organizational brochure, used to inform funders and company partners about our programs, Vikki graciously stepped in to improve it, producing a brochure and ‘right messaging’ in short order. We liked it so much we are using the art work on all our materials now.”

From Damian von Stauffenberg, International Finance Corp., Washington, D.C.:

“I think there is a need for a publication aimed at project investors in developing countries, and Global Production is doing a great job under your editorship.”

From Barrie Hartman, Executive Editor, Boulder Daily Camera, Boulder, CO:

“When I appointed Vikki editor of the Sunday Camera magazine at the (Boulder) Daily Camera she quickly directed a redesign of the magazine, weeded out weak freelancers, set tough standards for content, and developed new features and departments. In short, she quickly produced what I considered to be one of the best Sunday magazines in the country, even among newspapers with 10 times our staff and resources.”

From Jerry Burnett, Chairman and CEO of Avistar Communications Corp., San Mateo, CA:

“When Vikki, a long-time friend since her days as an editor at MIT, interviewed me for PRTM's Insight magazine, I was impressed with her thoughtfulness and originality. I have been interviewed a lot over my years in business and felt she was one of the best interviewers I've experienced, showing research and insight in her probing questions and encouraging me to dig ever deeper in my replies."

From Steve Geary, President, Supply Chain Visions, Boston:

“Vikki brings a wonderful combination of business professionalism and creative zest that delivers winning communications strategies.”
