“As facilitator of a planning process, Hilary showed significant knowledge of board development strategies, and pushed us to reflect upon our organization’s history, structure and growth, and make hard decisions. Hilary facilitated joint board and staff processes from beginning to end. With her laser-like focus we finished our plan on schedule. Hilary also exhibited solid skills working in multicultural settings. Our board is diverse in terms of both old and new members, the young and the more mature, and Hilary worked well in this situation with patience and grace. Her interpersonal skills were excellent. She showed a rare capacity to understand and work with conflict, and was able to step in effectively when discussions became heated, all the while steering our group to concentrate on mission-driven results.”
