Our experience working with Jade on our Strategic Planning was overwhelmingly positive. She was professional, rigorous and insightful. She is an excellent facilitator who was able to get to the heart of the matter and help us articulate a plan for the future that was full of integrity with a big picture vision.

Her experience as a cultural leader in the industry meant she deeply understood our aspirations and was able to embody our plan with best practice perspectives of inclusivity, access and community engagement which are so important to our work.  I never thought a strategic planning process could be so enjoyable.”  Kate McDonald, Executive Producer, Everybody NOW!
