Gwen not only provided us with excellent guidance during our strategic planning session with her, but she reassured and commended us that our current work had a tremendous community impact. She took our dreams and ambitions and channeled them into an action plan with measurable steps to our organization’s goals. Gwen is not only a skilled trainer, but she is also a wonderful person. We can’t recommend her enough to our nonprofit community.”

She was always prompt, responsive, and carried herself with the utmost professionalism. Gwen demonstrated her talents as she facilitated our strategic planning meetings and was able to help us articulate our vision and goals. Gwen’s greatest strength was her client-centered approach to her work. Gwen was respectful as she listened to and addressed our needs as clients. We believe she truly had our best interest in mind when working with us and the quality was reflected in her work.”
