“Thanks again for another great meeting yesterday. I’m really impressed with your listening skills and your ability to quickly synthesize information (not to mention your gift of keeping us from all talking at once!). It has been such a pleasure to work with you on our strategic planning process and I hope to have the opportunity to work together again. Thanks!”

– Donna Sharff, LMHC, Program Director, The Children’s Room Center for Grieving Children & Teens

“Once again, I appreciate your ability to facilitate the board meeting. The group is diverse and spirited. You have the unique ability to play the disciplinarian and warm-hearted coach simultaneously. That brings out the best.”

– Kevin R Parke, Board Chair, Fenn School

“I just want to thank you for your great work with our office the other day. It was the first time we’ve done something like this and I think it was so worthwhile because it really helped us lay the groundwork for the next year. We usually just go about doing our own thing with our own functional areas, and I think it helped to show how all of our work is connected and how we can work together toward common goals. You did a great job leading the conversation and always bringing us back to the task at hand. We have a lot of great work ahead of us! Thank you!”

– Jennifer Reardon, Assistant Director of Communications,  The Winsor School

“Thanks, Jay. Our session exceeded all expectations.”

– Joseph W. McNabb, PhD, President, Labouré College

“MANY thanks for providing your very capable leadership to our retreat. As you know, I was very happy with how it went, and I have heard glowing feedback from my colleagues.  Everyone felt it was worthwhile, and many are enthusiastically stepping up to take on roles going forward.”

– John Willett, Board Member, F. C. Greater Boston Bolts

“Thought you would enjoy this: One of our newer board members – I just love him because he’s very shrewd, very art savvy, and is never afraid to be the devil’s advocate – I actually called him prior to the meeting and begged him to show up (he has his own very busy company) because I wanted to make sure he experienced for himself what you led us through. Today he sent a note: ‘Yesterday was very exciting. Over the next couple of years, we’re going to make it!’ and a check for a thousand bucks! Nice job, Jay. Quicker return on investment than we ever dreamed!”

– Michael Darmody, Former Director of Development, Fuller Craft Museum

“Everyone (even those who were most skeptical about having a consultant
involved) thought you were great! Thank you!”

– Dexter C. Mead, Executive Director, Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust, Inc.

“Jay, I really enjoyed the straightforward nature of your work. Thanks a
lot! I will be happy to recommend you anytime.”

– John Tilley, Executive Director, YMCA Camp Coniston

“Despite a very full agenda, I thought the meeting went very well. We covered a lot of territory, but it also allowed people to talk a little about future issues. We have committees and some momentum. A good start.”

– Bill Walczak, CEO, Codman Square Health Center, Board President, Massachusetts Nonprofit Network
