Great strategic framework! Cecilia has the best strategic mind I have ever worked with.
Carrie R.
Non-profit CEO
Cecilia does a terrific job moving us through the planning process and making us address the more difficult issues. The strategic planning session was very effective in getting agreement on a new mission statement, a framework for evaluating opportunities and making go/no go decisions about those opportunities, and initiatives for programs and development.

Cecilia is a master strategic thinker, but I was surprised and delighted to learn a number of really valuable tips to make my consulting practice more successful.
