I truly enjoyed working with Janine MacDonald on our strategic plan. The results were eye opening and really helped us to clarify our mission and vision statements. Her personal expertise in the corporate world, coupled with an invested heart for non profits create a well balanced field for growth and self discovery.

When BIA OC was faced with creating a program for its members to enhance and develop their leadership skills, Janine McDonald was instrumental in bringing the vision of a Leadership Academy to a reality. As an expert in leadership development she worked closely with the team to identify the needs of our members, design a robust program and deliver it successfully.

She is passionate about leadership and it shows in her commitment to the clients she is helping.

For over 10 years, Janine partnered with me in leading and planning the company's annual strategic planning process. She was responsible for creating long-range plans and tactical operational plans as well as tracking and monitoring implementation for results. She also championed strategic planning programs for over 200 of our clients.

She is highly creative and skillful in her facilitation and knows how to engage participants in the process.

I have seen first-hand her ability to facilitate small and large groups and bring them to deeper levels of understanding and expand their performance capacity. She has tremendous talent for delivering exceptional learning experiences. If you engage her services, prepare to be "wow-ed!"

These qualities, along with her humility and passion for service, lead me to recommend her for any work focused on leadership, management, and organization development.
