Rave Reviews

  • “Colette was enjoyable to work with.  So often faciliatators are not well spoken and cannot keep the group going.  She was both well spoken, kept the group going and interacted well with the group.”
  • “Colette was clear in her instructions and explanations but never tried to dominate the discussions as some facilitators do.”
  • “[The retreat that Colette facilitated] created a platform for the development of a vision for the next 20+ years.  This platform is only in a discussion stage but the major points have been identified.”
  • “One of the pluses [Colette] possesses is the ability to ‘make you think.'”
  • [Colette] was excellent and pleasant and knowledgeable.  She sets a presence for everyone to be comfortable and respected.  She is very good at what she does.”
