“Gord has an uncanny gift of being able to read individuals and situations, while bringing out their best in a very short amount of time. He helped us to produce great results that are truly actionable.”

“Our entire team of 8 thoroughly enjoyed working with Gord.  He efficiently brought to our team clear and helpful ways to navigate meetings, a SWOT analysis and the start of a strategic plan.  He has an excellent “read” on people and their roles and brings a multitude of ideas on how to access information and support from community sources.  Well worth the time and money.”

“I enjoyed this event (Gord's Truth About Healthcare Meetings presentation) and took away several nuggets that I can implement into my meeting structure to create some quick wins in facilitating efficient and effective meetings. I appreciated Gord’s knowledge from an “outside of health care” view and the group participation to enlist rich ideas from allied professionals”.

“I put my trust in Gord to create a meeting that would make good use of the time they were spending in the room that day, and he did not disappoint.”

The Beaumont Chamber of Commerce is a young organization (founded in 2014), but, we have the benefit of having a number of experienced and talented Board Members. Gord was very helpful in getting this diverse group of individuals working together efficiently, effectively with purpose and some fun.”

“Within an hour, Gord had helped us formulate a plan that would take The Rainbow Society of Alberta to a new level by embracing and re-engaging our Board of Directors as well as our existing sponsors and donors.”
