“You did an outstanding job facilitating the retreat with our board on Saturday. I had high expectations, and you met them.  Your professionalism and positive style set just the tone I was looking for, and you helped bring about some significant decisions – in a way that felt meaningful, respectful, and constructive to everyone who participated. We’re all feeling really good about it! Barbara was the perfect person to help with our retreat, and I’ll be sure to refer her to others, as well. High fives all around!”

“Barbara MacKay and North Star Facilitators helped Consumer and Corporate Affairs develop its initial planning process. Barb provided the positive environment and practical exercises that allowed our executive management group to be comfortable with each other, to take some risks, to become a team. Barb facilitated some excellent work on our environmental scan and on our strengths and weaknesses. This was such a good experience that I asked Barb back to provide similar services to the Legislative Assembly administrative management staff. You won’t be disappointed either.”

“Barbara engages workshop participants with her keen insight, genuine warmth, and a wonderful sense of humour. Having had Barbara facilitate 3 workshops, the unanimous feedback from participants has always been to bring her back for an encore!”
