Finding Wisdom From Group Collaboration

Positive Client Comments

"Thanks a lot for the time, effort and great work you did last week with our team.  I think it was a great session and we managed to accomplish  a lot in the short time.  Many of my colleagues shared the same sentiments. I personally especially admired your patience and focus, because I thought it was a relatively difficult group to coach, so all in all you did an excellent job." 

Opal Rowe, Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce


​"On behalf of Cummer Avenue United Church, I thank you for enabling Mark Ellwood to provide facilitation services to our congregation. With his assistance, we were able to complete a productive consultative process that has resulted in completion of our renovation strategy. This is an important early step in our major renovation project."
