What My Friends Say
“Sue conducted a resident survey to gather information and data for our City's Long Range Comprehensive Plan. Her help was invaluable and she worked very professionally with all 12 of our committee members through differing opinions and conflicts. From design to the finished product, she exceeded expectations and produced the single most important part of our plan. We give her the highest recommendation.”
Jim Long, Chairman, Long Range Planning Committee, Horseshoe Bay Texas
"The measurement tool Sue initiated for our multi-company project was really comprehensive and yet so easy to use."
Karen Dicks - Global Programs Specialist, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)
“Though normally not in their pattern of giving, Sue passionately pursued a $100,000 gift from a local high tech company for our $77 million capital campaign. She is a true hero for Central Texas’ performing arts and we are eternally grateful.”
Reynolds B. “Cliff” Redd, Jr. - Executive Director, Long Center for the Performing Arts

"Sue was the correct blend of know-how and personality to easily facilitate our board through a core values discussion. Her toolbox of facilitation techniques quickly engaged everyone in our group to be active participants in a discussion that ended with actionable next steps.

fa♦cil´♦i♦tate´: to make easier
In Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat told Alice that if she didn’t care where she was going, “then it doesn’t matter which way you go!” Alice continues to wander aimlessly in Wonderland, encountering one misadventure after another. Likewise, organizations without a clear destination, a roadmap, and strategies for anticipating and overcoming obstacles, are likely to have difficulty finding success.
Developing these tools can be puzzling, but with a skilled facilitator, it can be an exciting and galvanizing experience -
As a meeting facilitator, I am effective working with small teams, as well as, large stakeholder groups, line employees, executives and community members. Whether leading clients through process improvement, problem solving processes or strategic planning, I use a variety of tools and techniques to move groups to their desired outcomes efficiently, with full engagement and fun. I create an energized environment with an informal style of facilitation leading to outcomes grown organically from participants so they can say “WE did it!”
I'll work with you to determine the best methods for your team to tackle these tasks and make the most of your collaborative activities. I offer VIRTUAL facilitation with the same fun and engaging activities using ZOOM and an online Miro Board as electronic platforms.
