Andrea Ramage  |  Founder & CEO

SMART. NIMBLE. ENTERPRISING. CHANGE-MAKING.

Venturing into new territory is both gutsy and essential for the long-term success of your organization.

New territory is my preferred habitat. It’s where potential roams, where possibilities abound – where powerful ideas are conceived, tamed, and shaped into advantage.


YOUR IDEAS. MY EXPERTISE. POWERFUL RESULTS.

HOLD PRODUCTIVE STRATEGIC MEETINGS

Imagine tapping into the brilliance of everyone in the room. Whether your goal is to discuss organizational strategy, make a key decision, or resolve an important issue, you sit back while I facilitate an engaging and productive meeting that energizes people for building a vision and making it a reality.

WEAVE THROUGH COMPLEXITY TO SOLUTIONS

Costs are up and funding is down for infrastructure projects. How can your project deliver the same or better levels of service, at the same or lower costs, while enhancing triple bottom line performance and resilience? Finding the answers is the purpose of value planning, an early-stage planning effort in which you can expect to uncover hidden solutions, cost efficiencies, and build stakeholder support.

MAKE INNOVATION EASY

Better than brainstorming! These workshops are for teams who find themselves stymied by complicated problems and difficult challenges. Your innovation facilitator will expertly guide you through a powerful creative problem-solving process, designed to generate fresh and viable solutions for your specific challenge.

GAIN ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP SKILLS

Essential skills for every leader and changemaker: strategic thinking, inspiring creative solutions, and leading innovation. Give your people the ability to achieve new heights of performance, or simply fix the gaps. We design and deliver lively, hands-on trainings filled with practical examples and exercises to practice new-found skills.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

“Andrea’s demonstrated experience working with local governments was invaluable to the process as she understood the issues and needs of our members and used that insight to help us achieve our goals.”

Marc DailyExecutive Director, Thurston Regional Planning Council

“Andrea has given so much to our organization, how may I count the ways? She starts with the clarity of the end goal, the tasks to get there, and constant willingness to readjust as necessary through concrete communication.  As the client, I often feel a ten-minute check in with Andrea is more powerful than one hour with anyone else!  She prepares, she adjusts, she gets results that wow even us.” 

Maralise Hood QuanExecutive Director, Center for Dialog & Resolution

“Andrea is articulate and passionate about environmental and social issues, and has demonstrated innovation and leadership in these fields — from developing, leading, and implementing sustainable solutions at CH2M, where I worked with her. Much of her leadership magic involves leading by influence, rather than by edict, and often in a facilitation role. In this area, Andrea excels!”

Robert BeinsteinDirector of Sustainability and the IT Practice, Environmental Financial Consulting Group, Inc.

“We had SO MUCH really positive feedback about your keynote given to us directly while EDC staff has been out in the community since the event. Thank you so much for your starting out our morning with the perfect mix of information and inspiration.”

Traci HansenProgram Manager, Washington Center for Women in Business (WCWB)
