TAKING OUR ORGANIZATION TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF SUCCESS

“Our chamber association really saw growth potential and an opportunity for further relevancy during the pandemic.  Our board decided it was time to put a strategic plan in place and we truly found the best in the business with The Solution.  Dot and her team led us in the direction of taking our organization to the next level of success.  She not only conducted an amazing strategy-filled virtual session but delivered a detailed working document that was easy to navigate.  The follow up sessions to keep us on track have been invaluable.  We would highly recommend Dot and The Solution for your chamber or association, hands down!”

– Cindy Holzheimer, Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce

THE SOLUTION HELPED US TO BE NIMBLE AND THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

“2020 has been a tough year for many small businesses and non-profits.  The Colorado Weed Management Association (CWMA) was faced with some very tough decisions early on in the year. With the guidance of Monica (the Solution) as our executive Director, CWMA was able to get creative and offer several online classes and to hold our Annual Training virtually. CWMA was able to pull through 2020 significantly better than we would have thought possible during those early days. Noxious weeds are persistent / tenacious / resilient.  As CWMA is a noxious weed management organization, we aim to be as resilient as the weeds.”

– Tina Travis, CWMA Board President
