Wellspring Calgary had the privilege of working with Valerie MacLeod during a recent and very important strategic planning process. Valerie’s knowledge, preparation, skill in facilitation, sense of humor, and organizational skill made the event a tremendous success. All who took part expressed great satisfaction with the process, the experience, and the outcome. We left our time together with the plan we needed and a sense of confidence as we move forward. I would wholeheartedly recommend Valerie. She is an exceptional facilitator who brings a solid business understanding to your business/organizational needs.
