“Deborah Howard is an amazing bundle of energy, very bright and one of the most pleasant people you ever will work with. She knows her subjects and works tirelessly to satisfy her clients. I have worked closely with her in the English Speaking Union and guarantee that you can’t do better than Deborah Howard!”
Patricia Schroeder, Board Chair, English Speaking Union (former Member of Congress)

"[In working with our organization] Deb was extremely helpful and well received. Our staff enjoyed her style her openness, her ability to identify the ‘heart’ of an issue and focus attention and discussion on what really mattered. I was particularly impressed with her methodical preparation before the workshops and her comprehensive reports and analysis after the workshops. After just a few hours with key constituents, Deb came to a broad understanding of how our organization operated, what the significant issues were, who the vital players were and consequently she was able to lead our meetings with a certain amount of authority. The team felt confident that she was familiar enough with the Academy to coach us in our transition.”
Wendy Caruso, Director of Human Resources, New York Academy of Sciences

I strongly recommend Deborah Howard.”

What are the client’s desired outcomes? What would success look like? This is tailored to each organization’s needs.
We gain wide perspective and learn about needs/concerns through: email surveys, focus groups, interviews, and large group forums. This data ensures that the result of the work will meet the organization’s actual needs not just perceived needs.
I keep feedback anonymous and share themes that surface.
Based on the data that surfaces, I design and facilitate:

Trainings/workshops
Interventions/activities
Strategic planning initiatives
Change initiatives
