What Our Clients Are Saying
My words for Kathy Pedrotti Hays: creative, well organized, resourceful, competent, honest, purposeful, client focused, smart, fun, and meaningful. When we first met, Kathy was guiding a really opinionated staff through a strategic planning process. As a member of that group, I was immediately impressed with her ability to help us focus and be truthful about significant issues. That was in 2005. Nine years later and through an array of settings, she has been, and remains, my first choice for planning, annual reports, facilitating multi-agency collaborative efforts, board development, and fostering collegial thinking. Not only is it a pleasure working with her on projects, the results we achieve with her guidance are both significant and meaningful for the persons we serve.
Kathy really pushed the Board and staff to evaluate our strategic position. The conversations and discussions were lively, respectful and helped to solidify a good working team for the Damien Center moving forward. Additionally, the short term operational plans helped to create a clear path to action and ultimately success. The work that we did helped to ensure we could uniformly and succinctly articulate our needs as well as detail the resources that were needed to move the organization forward. The strategic plan developed our strategy but along the way strengthened our team and relationships with funders.
I have known Kathy — and worked with her in various capacities — for a few years. Bohlsen Group recently hired her to help us with our strategic planning and I found her to be intelligent, organized, capable, inspiring and forward-thinking. We came out of the three-month process with clearly-defined goals and objectives to guide us for the next three years. Because of the solid results and great experience, I've hired Kathy to help with another important company planning project. I plan to hire and collaborate with Kathy for many years to come!
There are so many consultants out there; it’s hard to know who will truly partner with your board and staff to move your agency forward. As a Coalition, there are many ideas, opinions and perspective that need to be honored with every community plan we write and produce. Kathy and her team were the perfect fit to help deliver a realistic, attainable, and effective set of strategies to reach the goals of the entire community. While the work was not easy, it was apparent with each step that Kathy was invested in the success of our work and our community, and delivered an amazing product. Her work ethic and methodologies were an amazing fit and I would recommend her each and every time.
