I highly recommend that other nonprofit organizations consider the benefits of having a consultant on retainer: ·
- Maria Murray, The Reading League
I have been working with Heidi closely over the last year and I have found her to be wise, insightful , and highly effective at addressing problems head on. Heidi has a great knowledge of not for profits and how they work. She has a keen eye for details and a great ear for tone. She is also wonderful at bringing along ideas for people who may not be ready for them.
- Christian Zabriskie, Executive Director, Onondaga County Public Library
"Our time with Heidi started right about the same time as the pandemic shut us down...Although the year brought many challenges, Heidi’s leadership was a blessing to our agency. Her mentorship of both the Exec. Director and the board of directors, culminated at the end of her term with a fantastic and thought-provoking retreat. Heidi is an expert in her field and I highly recommend her as a very valuable resource to any organization, no matter where they may be on the growth chart!
- Jodi DeAugustine, Board Secretary, The Dunbar Association
"If you are looking for a frank, out of the box thinker to provide leadership development training for your team, Heidi is the person to go to! Heidi developed a unique 12 month leadership development training for my staff that was highly successful, engaging and fun!"
- Julie Dale, CEO, Girls Scouts of NYPENN Pathways
"Heidi is easy to get along with, funny, honest, has a strong work ethic and is an expert in non-profit matters and strategic work. In her group coaching sessions she does a fantastic job at bringing diverse groups together and at helping them navigate through difficult, honest, conversations."
- Flavia Rey de Castro, Community Development Specialist, Town of Windsor, CT
"The retreat was thoroughly prepared and planned down to every detail. It was everything you hope to get out of a day like that - productive, engaging, fun - and most importantly - something you take with you for years to come."
- Lauren Kochian, President, The MOST
