"Bonni [president of Atlantic Consultants] really did a fabulous job with our group of 30 agency representatives. She kept us on task, ensured the participation of each member of the group, and helped each of us to keep our focus on the goal we wanted to achieve in the meeting. When old tensions or arguments surfaced and threatened our progress, Bonni found ways to diffuse the pressure without making anyone feel that they weren't heard. The group (again, a hard group to please!) was unanimous in their appreciation and praise of her work, and we would definitely call upon her again should we decide to do a large group retreat or strategic planning session. I strongly recommend Bonni to you." - Liz O'Connor, President, Strategy Matters, Inc.
