The Vancouver Island Strata Owners Association (VISOA) went through a stringent vetting process to choose a facilitator to help the organization with renewing its Strategic Plan. Frank Growth Solutions Inc. came out on top. Frank Atnikov’s experience clearly showed as he successfully guided us through an efficient thought process that landed a workable plan. Frank’s understanding of people ensured that all contributors were heard. A very professional job, with a very satisfactory result.
From start to finish, our experience with Frank was incredibly positive. He provided gentle guidance throughout the process and when our staff team gathered as a group we found his facilitation skills to be excellent. He was able to effectively summarize the collective thoughts of numerous stakeholders and provide us with a finished product that we are very satisfied with. We hope to continue to work with him in the future.
We worked with Frank Growth Solutions Inc. on a large and multi-faceted Organizational Sustainability Project which involved board work, marketing strategy, and social enterprise development. Frank was very knowledgeable and met us where we are to help imagine and implement our goals. After working with Frank, I feel confident we have the tools to move forward with our lofty plans.
As a result of the strategic planning sessions and board governance training we did with Frank Growth Solutions Inc., the Manitoba Wildlife Federation can now complete the transition from a management to governance style board and move forward with a clear strategic plan.
Our work with Frank was very useful. In spite of us having to meet virtually, Frank was warm and had an ability to navigate our conversations with ease. He was clear and focused on helping us ramp up our social enterprise model. The result of our work together was a report outlining and detailing considerations as we move forward with our project. I would not hesitate to work with Frank again.
Working with Frank brought ease to the entire strategic planning process from start to finish. Frank was highly skilled at facilitating a smooth collaborative weekend planning session with board and staff working effectively and efficiently together. The process was entirely relevant to our charities’ needs and supported us to stay focused on the pertinent issues at hand. We left with a plan that will serve us – actually serve us (not sit in a drawer) – for the next 3 years. I appreciated Frank’s follow up support and continued availability to be of guidance to our team.
Winnipeg, we are on Treaty 1 Territory, the ancestral home of the Anishinaabe and Cree people, as well as the birthplace of the Métis Nation. It is also important for us to acknowledge the water we use in Winnipeg comes from Treaty 3 Territory.
For those of us in Victoria we live and work in the traditional territory of the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱sáneć Nations.
We do this to acknowledge the people who were here before us, who are still here – and who we share this land with. May we all work towards a strong relationship of trust, respect, and reconciliation.
