“It was an excellent [strategic planning] session [due to] a facilitator who knew how to guide the group and provide excellent teaching points. It was one of the most interesting
and uplifting sessions I have experienced.”
– Valerie Morris, Information Management and Privacy Specialist,
Freedom of Information and Privacy Office, Ontario Government
“Your facilitation skills are excellent. By ensuring that our Board members and staff
were able to contribute their ideas you were very instrumental in helping us
develop our 5-year strategic plan.”
“[your] involvement was instrumental not just in guiding our process, but in eliciting creative concepts and ideas from our team that would not otherwise have surfaced. Your engaging style, and respect for all participants, were key to the creation of a plan that we believe is aspirational in its scope and direction, yet pragmatic enough to drive quick results."
– Kevin Beingessner, President & CEO, Coril Holdings Ltd.
“It was the focus on thinking and changing mindset over time that appealed to me. I’d tried other approaches and realized that if there wasn’t a change in my group’s mindset there would be no real, lasting change that could be cultivated to create a new culture.”
– Allan Cooper, President and CEO, The Canadian Depository for Securities Limited
“Our Board was extremely pleased with the work you and your team did to develop our five-year strategic plan. Not only was your planning process well thought out, it was an enjoyable process to go through. The meetings you facilitated helped us agree on our strategic direction, and the plan was something we were able to put to immediate use.”
– Paul Fraumeni, Director, The Safehaven Project for Community Living
“You skillfully engaged the very diverse board of our NGO in an offsite strategy session. Your experience paid off handsomely as you drew both new insight and active debate from all directors on challenging issues affecting our future course. Through your leadership we have a plan that enjoys the full support of the board, and had a productive and enjoyable day.”
– Paul M. Lavelle, Director, CESO | SACO and Chair, Cambridge Corporate Development Inc.
