  • This is the second event I’ve been involved with where you were facilitating the process. As both a ‘participant’ and a board member I have a greater understanding of the value your service provides. I was able to see and hear first hand the feedback from our community stakeholders and that alone was worth it’s weight in gold.

    Drawing out genuine honest comments from everyone can be a challenging process. But you’ve created a way where it seemed natural and easy. The outpouring of emotion in some folks at my table, clearly underscored how effective it all was.”
