Feedback from online workshop participants:

“I have participated in many strategic planning sessions and team-building activities in the past that simply scratched the surface. This unique, experiential workshop helped me dig deep to make real community connections with complete strangers within a mere few hours.”   Ash Arrowsmith, Recreation Professional, Riverview, New Brunswick

“I thought I knew what community meant but found out it is so much more!  I appreciated all the opportunities this group provided to share and grow.”   Wendy J Otness, BA, RN, CNOR, CNAMB, Bemidji, Minnesota.

“I feel a new sense of peace regarding conflict resolution. I used to avoid confrontation; now I have valuable tools that will help guide me through tough situations.  Melissa Carlson, Founder Melissa Carlson Creative, Madison, Wisconsin

“I applied the skills I picked up while I was President of the Rotaract Club, and it was a hit! It really helped the members become more involved in the club and feel more comfortable sharing ideas at meetings.”  Victoria Smith, Halifax Nova Scotia

“Lori was gracefully able to guild us through the steps of becoming a community. She was also able to name or label different parts of the process in a way that was easy to understand.”  Mathieu Landry, Program Advisor for the Department of Health, GNB, Moncton, New Brunswick
