TESTIMONIALS

"Anna's workshop facilitation allowed our program developers and key institutional stakeholders to come together and explore underlying issues we needed to address in order to grow and re-imagine elements of our campus Orientation program. Using mindful and focused questions as well as a creative framework Anna led our group quickly and effectively to ideate creative solutions to meet the needs of our student population while being achievable and realistic. Her thoughtful preparation and openness to personalizing an experience that was reflective of our needs was something I greatly appreciated. It is with utmost confidence that I recommend Anna's creative facilitation!"
