"I am still ‘smiling on the inside’ about the work we accomplished this past Saturday at the retreat! Everyone spoke – and continues to speak - with the utmost ‘positivity’, and with lots of praise, for how comfortably and efficiently you helped to make the day go. I was somewhat worried about the time constriction, but wanted to respect people’s personal lives– and you managed to make the most of the time spent, which people experienced as well spent."

"Sarah did a great job of getting to know and understand the history and needs of our group, including where we are in our trajectory and the challenges we need to address. She spent the time she needed listening, asking questions, getting feedback on draft agendas, and fine-tuning to get where we needed to be with the retreat design. We moved from quite a point of serious ambiguity in terms of retreat goals and design to a retreat that fit our needs very, very well. And she was credible in facilitating the retreat because it was clear that she knew the background and current situation of the group. The evaluations of the retreat were overwhelmingly positive and we accomplished more than I thought we might. During the course of the retreat preparation and follow-up, Sarah also provided me with valuable "coaching" and she has been a great sounding board for me as I move forward with directing this project." - Director, Philanthropy sector
"I just want to take a brief moment and thank you for your excellent job facilitating our retreat. I rode home with two other people and we all felt that the retreat was productive, energetic, well-lead, with great participation from some folks who usually are quiet at other meetings. Your role was tremendous in accomplishing this. I know that I will be recommending you to others! Thank you,"
