  • Words cannot express how excited I am about being President of the Southwest & Pacific Chapter of PCMA since your facilitation of our board retreat. I am now working with a board of enthusiastic, motivated, caring, dedicated people that I do not believe I had before the retreat. Many questioned why I needed a facilitator before the retreat. None question that rationale now. I personally have learned a lot about working within the style of each member, which I would never, had known without the exercises you facilitated. We are also on the path to setting and achieving our goals. Every time I have heard or worked with you either as a facilitator or keynoter I have been more and more impressed. You are certainly like wine improving all the time."
