Word on the Street – ORGANIZATIONS

Professionalism, rigor and attention to detail

Gay Lea Logo“Foot in the Door Consulting conducted an external evaluation of our award winning Leadership in Governance Advanced Program to assess the impact the training and development program had on the participants and to provide recommendations on how to improve the program in future iterations. From the moment we set out our aims for the evaluation, Foot in the Door was able to bring the project to life and ensure that we could provide our stakeholders with a thorough evaluation process and recommendations that we could act upon. Foot in the Door displayed professionalism, rigor and attention to detail throughout the whole project. The Advanced Program has received support from the Board of Gay Lea Foods to recruit another class in 2014 based on the feedback and recommendations captured by Foot in the Door. I would not hesitate to work with Foot in the Door in the future and would recommend their services to other organizations.”

The workshop left me energized and excited to take action

Aga Khan Foundation logo“I just wanted to send you a personal note of thanks for the time you spent with [us] over the past two days. I can tell you with full confidence that I really took away a lot from the session. I’ve mentioned to many individuals how valuable this was for me as a returning fellow. You are really great at facilitating such discussion and I really appreciated your approach and the questions you asked which really got me thinking. I walked out of the session so energized and excited to make decisions and take actions upon some of your advice and thoughts that came out of that day.”

Consultants you trust to do the best job possible

Canadian Co-operative Association Logo“Working with Christa and Nancy was a great experience. From the very first meeting about our project evaluation, I knew we were on the same page, with the same expectations around the requirements and how the evaluation would be carried out. Christa and Nancy offered expert advice and consistently delivered on time and great quality work. It is a great pleasure to work with consultants you trust to do the best job possible.”

Favourite workshop for international interns

Canadian Co-operative Association Logo“Thank you for all the work you put into preparing and presenting the [Things to think about now¬†for building your post-internship career] workshop at our pre-departure training. According to the evaluation it proved to be one of the favourites and the most commented on workshop out of all of them!”

Met tight deadlines and produced an excellent resource

Nobel Women's Initiative Logo“Nancy and Christa developed and wrote the manual for our new pilot project–the Sister-to-Sister Mentorship Program–which is a unique opportunity for young women activists from Burma, Sudan, Palestine and the Americas to hone their international advocacy and media skills. It was a pleasure working with Nancy and Christa in putting together all the different modules including lobbying, messaging, presentation skills, leadership, proposal development and self-care. As they themselves have years of experience in international advocacy, their extensive knowledge and expertise was clearly reflected in the modules. Meeting tight deadlines and receiving minimal guidance, they produced an excellent resource that will benefit young women activists worldwide. It equips them with practical tools and techniques that have proven to be effective for them and their organizations.”

I would like to share the personalized document you made re: my CV with friends and colleagues who are looking for work.”
