What Clients Have Said

I have participated in many retreats like today’s and this was the best run and most effective of all of them. Congratulations to you for selecting Marcy Shankman to facilitate and to her for pulling it off. Very effective, with appropriate warm fuzzies and, more important, focus on issues and action items. And we finished on schedule – a first in my experience.
