What people are saying:

“Amy listened to our dreams for Clean Start, honed our focus to be more actionable, and kept an eye on our present capacity to design a strategy for us.  She created a monitoring and evaluation program so that we will be able to collect the data and tell the story of our impact going forward and played an important role in one of our largest funding proposals.  She knows the value of careful planning and purposeful action and comes up with great alternatives in case of emergencies.” – Teresa Njoroge, CEO and Co-Founder, Clean Start

“I have gone through numerous strategic planning retreats facilitated by many prominent firms and must say that the planning with Amy was one of the best I have experienced.  Amy facilitated a robust discussion that helped us to expand our thinking about the work we were doing and wanted to be doing in order to analyze the different opportunities for organizational structure, roles and responsibilities, and future growth.  She helped develop a rubric by which to evaluate potential projects and helped us to develop ideas for new revenue streams.”  – Peter Holmes à Court, Director, Exposing Hope

“Amy has been a supportive sounding board as I work on an entrepreneurial venture.  She is an entrepreneur herself and has been able to translate her learnings and experiences with me.  Her knowledge has boosted my confidence to interact more closely with US investors.”  – Andia Laura Chakava, Chair, New Faces New Voices Kenya and Non Executive Director, Kenya Women Holding

“Amy deftly navigates where to take the lead, how to stimulate others’ intellectual creativity, and where to give a group time to absorb new concepts and incorporate them into their own thinking. She was both a strategic and tactical leader – able to encourage us to look at things from different perspectives to explore more holistic contexts, and to drive our work towards consensus and completion.  In addition to the remarkable quality of her work, she is personable, has an engaging sense of humor, and is a pleasure to work with.”  – Lawrence Riungu, Portfolio Manager, Acumen Fund
