Brenda has facilitated numerous strategic planning retreats for Executive Board members and staff of the Michigan Pharmacists Association over the past decade. In doing so, Brenda educated herself about our organization and industry, thus, enabling her to “talk our language,” understand our issues, and assist us in creating meaningful strategic plans. She actively engaged participants through her unique and effective facilitation techniques, making the process interesting, practical, and fun. She also exhibited a keen ability to “read” participants, and adjusted the agenda and approach accordingly, maximizing the contributions of each individual and enhancing the value and outcomes of the retreats. Thanks, Brenda, for helping our Board and staff develop, revise, and implement our strategic plans.
