About Us

Our Story

In 2019, Shane and Susie Wentz founded A Change in Latitude Consulting (ACIL) to help organizations reach their “true north”. Years of working in the private and public sectors as change agents leading business transformations exposed them to the many challenges that businesses face today. Their desire is to make a meaningful impact on businesses of any size, across any industry, by implementing and coaching your team to sustainable change successfully.

Having worked with large business consulting firms in the past that provided cookie-cutter solutions, often with consultants green in their experience, they believed there could be a better approach to business consulting. So, on a sunny day at Clearwater Beach, A Change in Latitude Consulting was born.
