Social Innovation Consulting  & Facilitation

"Michael was instrumental in rejuvenating AYC through an inspiring strategic planning process. Our members wanted transformational change, and his thoughtful approach and well-crafted facilitation techniques started several thought-provoking conversations that brought many new perspectives about our organization to light.

 

Afterwards, he did an outstanding job consolidating the data into a concise document with recommendations that give us everything we need for organizational change."
