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.
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.
I was very happy with the results of our work together. CVNL provided important content, delivered in a manner that was professional, knowledgeable and approachable. I really liked the way the consultant responded to questions, comments it made people feel heard and validated. The training series added skills and awareness to our leadership team. We have had many discussions prompted from this work and we will continue to do so. This was a good experience.
CVNL was outstanding! They quickly grasped our needs and were a quick study about our organization, our mission and our situation. This allowed them to lead our client meetings effectively and comfortably, to establish rapport with the participants, to structure the meeting in an engaging way and to move things along to stay on the timetable allotted. The follow up report was great and the discussion with the board last night was professional and impressive. We were delighted with the services overall!
