PROGRAM SUCCESS STORIES
What People are Saying
Devan Williams, Employment Counsellor – Squamish Nation
'I've been a part of numerous strategic planning sessions and know a skilled facilitator when I work with one, Megan is one of the best. Not only is she incredibly organized, researched and prepared, she is flexible and able to quickly pivot depending on the needs of the room. Her approach is structured, yet full of curiosity. Megan provided clear direction, asked hard questions to draw out our best answers, and supported our team the entire way through. We left our strategic planning session knowing we had a way forward with our newly identified initiatives and were better connected as a team for the experience.'
Kirsten Andrews, Squamish Constellation Festival
'The impact of the Leadership Development Training program was that I gained a better understanding of my leadership strengths and weaknesses. Taking the leadership program has given me new skills to communicate better, not only with leading projects, but also when working with different personalities within my organization. I was able to take the techniques taught in the program for myself, but also to help a co-worker better articulate here concerns for a new advisory committee. I had new found confidence in being able to help and my coworker was to grateful with how I was able to help her communicate her concerns. Since taking this program I feel that I have been able to better lead my projects utilizing the different skills we learned throughout the program. My favorite part of the program was Change Management, Aislinn really tricked us and it was soooo funny!!'

Dean, President – Summit Camps
'We hired Meg of Bungalow 968 for a full day of strategic business planning. The day included a variety of activities from the creative envisioning to the more practical expense and income worksheet to come up with a refreshed pricing strategy. The information we gleaned from this experience was very valuable. We were able to re-orient ourselves after this planning day and have since expanded our product line significantly and continue to put our focus in this direction in part due to the information we learned through this strategic planning day. Meg is professional, knowledgeable and inspiring to work with, her enthusiasm for business and planning is apparent. I highly recommend her services for anyone who is looking to create a full picture of their business and to create a game plan with clear direction.'
