The History

The Desk started in 1997 as the quality practice of Ethan J. Mings for organizations engaged in the health care sector. My goal was simple, provide consultation services to Senior Teams and Boards of Directors on effective methods to achieve goals in a timely manner. What made my practice unique was passion for using technology and the Internet to support consultation projects.
