USEFUL NUGGETS ON STRATEGY, INNOVATION, INSIGHTS, AND PROBLEM-SOLVING

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

“As a big picture thinking approach, the Value Planning process was outstanding. It gave us a deeper understanding of the assets of the corridor and a pathway to develop future opportunities for community and parks. This was a good use of our time. I would recommend the Value Planning process to planners and communities who need an inspired, innovative approach to their complex infrastructure or development projects.”

Rich HoeyDirector of Public Works, City of Olympia

“Our group needed to develop a single strategic vision, outline clear roles and responsibilities, and make some critical decisions. Andrea did a remarkable job at preparing; her knowledge on the topic was truly amazing for someone under a tight timeline. I found the experience one of the best facilitated meetings I have attended.  Can’t say enough good things about her facilitation style! She is also a joy to work with.”

Jennifer WilliamsExecutive Secretary, FSM Alliance
