What Clients Say

"They had the perfect tool for everything we wanted to accomplish. What's more, the facilitators were invisible - every word on every page belonged to us."

Kurt Kimball - City Manager, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"We chose River Hills Consulting because of the uniqueness and simplicity of the process proposed. It contains all of the appropriate elements for a successful planning process, with an exciting and stimulating methodology. In addition, the Consensys™ system allowed us to build consensus without the bias or intimidation that can result from more traditional methods."

Donna Dolce - Chair, Fanwood, New Jersey Strategic Planning Team

"I think what the process did was that it allowed people to be honest in terms of what they see as the real issues. The drawback of just 'discussing things around the table' is that there may be a tendency to shy away from saying what you really think, but when you have a chance to vote, you all give input and are more likely to be honest. As a result of the planning session, we formed a management team that was able to solve many of the important issues for our organization."

Phil Holtrop - Chief Financial Officer, The Parkway Group

"It allows a team to use its creativity to open up the box of future possibilities. Exploring and bringing clarity to the rich diversity of ideas present in each of us, it allows a group to quickly come together around the prioritization of initiatives. I would highly recommend the process to any group or organization wrestling with the realities of constant discontinuous change and seeking more effective ways of organizing itself in response to change."

Craig Schrotenboer - Executive Director, Youth for Christ

"Just a short note to express my thanks for the outstanding job you did as facilitator of our caucus strategic planning session. I heard nothing but favorable comments from the other members and many stated that this was one of the best planning sessions ever."

Wayne Kuipers - State Representative, Michigan House of Representatives

"Thanks again for doing the Leadership Skills for the New Millennium seminar. The evaluations were all very positive."

Cindy Pocock - Holland Chamber of Commerce
