About Us

Welcome to Strategic Enhancement Group

Our company was founded in St. Charles, IL by Bob Parks and a partner in 1984. Our vision was to offer superior training and development consulting, using tools from the best resources available. Since then we have worked with nonprofits and companies, large and small, across diverse industries to accomplish amazing long lasting results. We are proud to say that we still work with our first two clients.

In 1988, Holly Parks bought out Bob’s partner and we started to grow, adding offices in Baltimore, MD, Bluffton, SC and St. Paul, Minnesota. While our offices are local, our reach is global. Through our partnership with Wilson Learning Worldwide, we have an established presence around the world. Over the years, we have made new alliances with companies like Celemi (simulations), Sell XL (strategic sales skills), Oxicon (sales hiring protocol) and Get Control!™ (email, phone and meeting efficiency) that could enhance our offerings to our clients. Consistently one of the top four agents for Wilson Learning, we have continued our legacy of commitment and dedication to our clients’ success through their employees.

Whether our help is in the form of consulting or training or both, success for the client and for me is determined when they meet their goals and create the change and outcomes they desire. I’m excited to be part of an organization for which "helping clients" goes far beyond the purchase of the product. The SEG philosophy is consistent with my own personal and professional values. I’ve had the chance to work with some of the finest companies and non-profit organizations in the nation, and it’s extremely fulfilling to help clients fully understand their challenges and to work in partnership to determine the best ways to help them.”

Our focus is on delivering real business results. We want to improve the performance of our clients by improving the performance of their employees, one person at a time. What we do is very important to our clients, but it is also very important to us. We believe our clients vote on us every day and therefore we have to demonstrate value to them every day."

Customer service has always been number one for me and it is certainly true for everyone at SEG. I enjoy being part of a team whose only goal is the success of their clients. Each and every one of us, no matter what our role, is passionate about the work we do, and in the end, if our clients don’t succeed, we don’t succeed. It’s really all about the people, and it’s the people at SEG that make the difference.”
