The retreat was superb! It succeeded beyond my expectations. CVNL did a fantastic job of merging our needs and wants with professional opinions. They brought a depth of experience, from many years working with so many nonprofits, and a thorough knowledge of the field that made everyone comfortable that we were working with the best information, and confident in the decisions that we were making.
We requested a facilitator not a consultant for our annual Board retreat. CVNL provided an exceptional facilitator who was able to add strategic content without abandoning facilitation focus.
This service was excellent. Materials were delivered on schedule and were right the first time. The Center was extremely responsive always available, helpful, and very clear in communications. This service exceeded our expectations. We are very satisfied with all aspects of the service.
It was a valuable session. I so much appreciated the training, the trainers responsiveness and flexibility! He was so willing to adjust his approach to assure that specific questions were answered, and I was particularly impressed with the way he responded to questions very clear, good answers, no hesitation. Ive had a few of the board members tell me how valuable they found the training to be.
The Center did a wonderful job, and we plan to utilize its expertise again.
We would absolutely recommend the Center to others. What was most helpful was a chance to discuss who we are with an outsider who could ask the questions we dont ask ourselves, as well as the good summary material for reviewing later. It really helped clarify who we are and where we want to go.
Thank you so much for the work you did with and for us. We have all improved because of the work that we did together to become a team that works together. Everyone felt they could trust you, and your insight for each of us was right on the money.
CVNL was able to give great, nuanced answers to the questions people had around board service. I was very pleased with the outcome professional, confident, funny and nice to have in the room definitely added to our retreat.
Thank you for your support and guidance through this process. Thank you as well for your diligence in so adeptly incorporating our comments and edits. Most of all, thank you for your sensitivity and expertise in supporting us to confront a challenging situation through a process that enabled us to move forward productively and positively.
I have been in many similar (strategic planning) meetings, and this was the best ever! Well planned. Well executed. Lots of great ideas. Great participation. CVNL did a marvelous job leading and directing us through the crowded agenda, and we ended on time! This was a great start to the new era for our organization.
