“Through Ned’s insightful facilitation, he led our board through a process that resulted in improved strategic thinking and engagement on a board level.  What impressed me most was Ned’s ability to meet our board where we were and then guide us to new ways of thinking.  Not a cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all approach from Ned. It was a great example of collaborative facilitation.  Our board meetings have become purposeful and meaningful due to Ned’s help.” 

Mike Chavers, CEO, Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch (Billings, Montana)

“It’s one thing to do your day to day work and be successful but reviewing our organization’s work from the outside looking in was not easy for us – we were too deep working in the weeds. Ned helped us to lift our view and see our organization from a higher level and then he provided a perspective that allowed us to see a broader vision.”

Heidi Van Everen, Executive Director, Whitefish Legacy Partners, the people who brought you the Whitefish Trail (Whitefish, Montana)
