“The Strategic Planning with Cathy Brothers was an excellent workshop! It was well organized, the guest speaker was certainly well versed and invited audience participation. Cathy demonstrated that she values the non-profit sector and certainly understands the funding restraints that we all work under. The partnership with Wood Buffalo is absolutely a value added for our community and can only make the place we call home – a more fantastic place to live and work. Excellent, excellent workshop!”
Cathy Payne, Board Member, Safe Communities
