• The ArtHeart Board has approved the strategic plan and is in the process of setting up committees and actually doing the items within the plan- so it's underway. You were absolutely amazing in guiding us through the process.

  • The Volunteer was very helpful in organizing our project scope. She helped us to breakdown the project in phases, making it more practical for implementation. We were satisfied with the results of the exercise. We would definitely consider working with her again. Many thanks.

  • Thank you very much for facilitating an outstanding presentation on governance for Birthright! Your depth of knowledge and your ability to tailor it to our needs is much appreciated. Our group at the meeting all learned a lot and realize we have plenty of food for thought as well as much to do going forward. We expect to be in touch as we grapple with this project in the months ahead. Again, thank you very much.

  • WoodGreen Community Services needed a facilitated session to help them envision new premises. The objective was to craft a vision with the input and perspectives from staff, Board and fundraisers. WoodGreen worked with MAS, to articulate clear objectives and design the day. MAS then facilitated and documented the session. MAS has done a fantastic job of facilitating working sessions that have resulted in real agreement and results. I would highly recommend Chris to any agency seeking support for this type of work.
  • Neighbourhood Centre had some new Board members and was looking for some Board development assistance to get the Board working at full speed. The MAS Consultant met with the Board Chair to discuss the objectives and options. MAS then provided the Board with the MAS Governance Workshop. The session was a success with the participants and resulted in a clear focus and work plan. MAS was very helpful to Neighbourhood House during a key transition period.

  • The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) requested the assistance of MAS in developing and implementing an employee performance management program. The MAS Consultant met with OCASI’s management team and developed a comprehensive performance management program and implementation strategy tailored to OCASI’s needs. It was a pleasure working with MAS. Our time together was productive and helped build our management capacity. The Consultant’s commitment, hard work and patience made the project a success.

  • The MAS consultant was very knowledgeable and approachable for all the questions and concerns we had in terms of HR rules and regulations. The VC provided all the materials, expertise and support that were required to overhaul the HR policies in order to ensure that our organization was following the best practices. Various benefits were achieved from this project and the impact it will have on the community and our organization is tremendous. We are very satisfied with the project and we would be move than privileged to use MAS again

  • MAS offered tremendous leadership for this group of community and agency members. Flemingdon Park is a community of considerable diversity. MAS designed a process that everyone was able to participate with and every voice found expression. I have been to many workshops that end up being about what the expert brings to the table rather than listening to the participants. The MAS Consultant offered an event that encouraged everyone in the room to take responsibility for the work required. The result was a clear and defined collaborative approach.
    The Rev. Helena-Rose Houldcroft
    Executive Director
  • The MAS consultant designed, facilitated and documented a strategic planning process with the Board and developed an operating plan with the staff. She was a leader throughout the process guiding the board and staff through the steps. Her facilitation skills were remarkable and allowed participants to be heard while the process moved forward.

  • We have been delighted with the quality facilitation provided to our centre by MAS. The Consultant's patience, professionalism and unique perspective guided us skillfully through our recent strategic planning process and have helped to keep us focused, while still encouraging active involvement and participation. All participants agreed that we could not have gone through this important process on our own.
    Linda Salb
    Executive Director
  • The MAS Consultant met with management and the board executive to discuss the goals for the current Board Planning Session. She prepared the agenda, provided resources, and structured the session to be inclusive, participatory and empowering for the board members. By the end of the day, the group had committed to working on four specific projects. Thank you again for your assistance. We would gladly recommend your service to any non-profit organization and look forward to our continuing association.

  • I was very satisfied with the results. MAS expertly facilitated our session assisting us to move quickly and efficiently through finalizing the content of our Employee Handbook. The team has collaboratively contributed to the creation of the handbook, which will contribute to a better understanding of the expectations of the organization and results in a handbook that is grounded in employee experience.

Board members and staff alike have found their consulting expertise to be instrumental to shaping SPRINT Senior Care’s strategic plans. In addition, their facilitation of our strategic planning process was both an enlightening and pleasant experience. SPRINT Senior Care highly recommends MAS.

  • We have turned to MAS for support when we are in need of clarifying our thinking, and moving forward strategically. As a network of diverse community organizations it can sometimes be challenging to achieve these goals without external support. MAS consultants are skilled in facilitating group discussions and decision-making processes, and we have found their contributions to be extremely helpful.
