Here is what people have to say about us…

“The facilitators were extremely engaging, inclusive, and made the sessions a great environment to learn and participate.”

– Participant,
House Farm Workers! Planning Workshops

“When our organization’s directors and management decided it was time to update our strategic plan and policies, we knew it would be challenging. Everybody around the table has strong opinions, and they are not shy about expressing them. Guiding our discussions to a productive conclusion would require skill, confidence, sensitivity and familiarity with the controversial issues our industry faces. As facilitators, Debbie and Elena provided all that and more, and we could not be happier with the outcome.”

– John Krist
CEO, Farm Bureau of Ventura County

“Debbie and Elena are a lot of fun, and very good at what they do. Their collective experience makes them very knowledgeable about the challenges nonprofits face, and about the steps organizations can take to face those challenges. They are excellent facilitators, keeping participants engaged and moving forward – a great example of teamwork.”

-Linda Braunschweiger
CEO, Ventura County Housing Trust Fund

“Debbie helped us identify issues and develop a strategic plan when our organization was handed a huge growth opportunity. Thanks to that process, we are now moving forward with confidence.  Her knowledge and expertise about the nuts and bolts of nonprofit administration, and has helped us improve our governance and management.”

-Jennifer Orcutt Heighton
