"Daphne came in to initially work with my board on a number of issues that had been preventing our team as a whole from reaching its goals. Daphne was punctual, personable, and knowledgeable and connected with the entire team. She developed, led, and demonstrated team building exercises that helped our newly formed team engage and open up to one another in ways we could not believe. She helped us to stay focused, design a strategic plan, and understand we must set realistic goals based on time, human capital experience, and performance.
We are so happy with the service Daphne provided. The knowledge, tips, and resources have helped us tremendously and for that we are forever grateful! I highly recommend Daphne to work with any nonprofit as she is the best I have encountered thus far!"
