Through EO, Crombé provides consulting services to leaders of other businesses, so they can find the freedom he has achieved in his own businesses. In an interview with Players of LifeCrombé explains his leadership training begins with perspective: 

"My purpose is to create freedom in the company, starting with its leaders, investors and executives through the clarity of why they get up in the morning,” he said. “If I can make [them] go to work and we are all going to achieve an objective, a goal or fulfill a promise, it would be more passionate, professional world.”

Additionally, he assists in launching the annual EO Global Leadership Conference (GLC), which recognizes the importance of collaboration in achieving global growth and organizational excellence, among other EO initiatives, programs and events. 

“A big part of our focus this year centers on teamwork; specifically, a synergistic approach fueled by inclusion, clarity and accountability,” Crombé said in regards to the EO Global Leadership Conference. “As the African proverb states: ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’”
