Strategic Planning Retreats

The annual board retreat is the right time to pull everyone together, appreciate accomplishments, identify future challenges, and set clear action-oriented goals. There are two keys to success with your board retreat: a great facilitator who can manage the group for results, and also a clear, well-defined agenda and outcomes.

Board Facilitation

Have a thorny subject or urgent matter to resolve? Gail can help set up a productive discussion designed to encourage dialogue and reach consensus among a divided board.

As an expert board retreat facilitator, she can help you create a more closely knit board with a new level of collegiality and commitment.

“Gail Perry’s successful facilitation continued long after our retreat was finalized. Our Board was sharply divided about our future before the retreat. Gail helped us come to an agreement on non-negotiable goals. Her approach gave us a clear vision and marching orders. It has worked quite well. We have achieved solid success thanks to Gail Perry.”
