Client Testimonials

“Working with Matt was both inspirational and productive! Matt was incredibly well-organized and people-friendly in how he approached facilitating our time together. He created the perfect balance of reflection, collaboration and invigoration time so that we left our retreat energized, focused, and ready to get to work on making our plan a reality. Our team gave Matt rave reviews for moving us through our time together with focus and purpose. I would definitely work with him again as a facilitator and give him my highest recommendation. He is widely regarded as an individual who effectively combines expertise in sustainability and environmental education with his skills as a facilitator.”
