Community Living Ontario
“We recently engaged with PMB to lead us through our strategic planning process. We found them (Janeen and Jennifer), to be knowledgeable, accessible, creative and engaging. The process was thorough and we feel well positioned to go forward with our work, knowing it’s well-grounded in relevant feedback from our stakeholders.”
Empowered Kids Ontario
“People Minded Business led a dynamic strategic visioning process for EKO that involved extensive community consultation, prudent analysis, and well-facilitated sessions with the Board to develop a new vision and approve the most transformational change for the Association in forty years. As a team, Jennifer and Janeen were motivated, responsive and proactive. Their communication skills are exceptional and we felt their commitment to our project from the earliest stages. It was a pleasure to work with them!”
"Co-design is where PMB helps organizations move away from ‘what was’ to ‘what can be.’ PMB consultants are knowledgeable and really helpful with the creative process – they make change engaging and easy!”
Bethesda Support Services
“Bethesda has worked with People Minded Business on many projects over the past 15 years. On every occasion their work has exceeded our expectations. PMB approaches every project as a partner and collaborator, and we have no doubt that they are as invested in a positive outcome as we are. Jen and Janeen bring deep and diverse skillsets to our work - they get us thinking broadly as we design new approaches to complex challenges, while also encouraging us to have a good time.”
BC Children’s Hospital & Canadian Consulate in Boston
“I have worked with PMB consultants in two of my professional roles – in Vancouver in 2004 at BC’s Children’s Hospital, and in 2012 at the Canadian Consulate General in Boston. The work Janeen and Jennifer completed for my respective organizations required significant stakeholder consultation, in environments where both tact and excellent facilitation skills were required. In both cases, PMB produced the results that met and exceeded our expectations.”
Gateway Residential & Community Support Services
“Gateway and Mainstream developed a great partnership with PMB and their dedication and commitment to our “Strategic Alliance” was clearly evident in all aspects of their work. We greatly appreciate their attention to detail and creative approach to bringing the Boards of Directors, Staff and Consumers together in working collaboratively to help make changes that will not only strengthen the 2 organizations but help to support some of our communities most vulnerable and disadvantaged citizens.”
NARSF Programs Ltd.
“People Minded Business took NARSF Programs Ltd. to the next level of integration when dealing with the strategic and business imperatives of our relationship oriented field. Whether its strategic planning, innovation, community consultation, training or facilitation, you’ve made the right choice for looking after your organizations’ needs!”
“PMB consultants bring much knowledge and expertise to every project that Participation House Support Services London and Area has engaged them in. Jennifer and Janeen take collaboration to a heightened level – they ask the right questions, hear the answers, and use the information to advance the organization. I highly recommend PMB to any agency looking for an excellent consultant experience.”
Canadian Association of Radiologists
“I have worked with People Minded Business on several initiatives over the past number of years. From facilitating standards development for an automotive accreditation program, to developing strategic roadmaps for a medical association, Jennifer Keilty-Freisen has been instrumental in cutting through operational clutter to bring clarity to our team’s organizational goals. Jennifer’s diplomatic and collaborative approach can turn even the most contentious meetings into productive brainstorming sessions. Her expertise in quality and program development have contributed significantly to the success of our projects.”
Tuesday Afternoon Media Inc.
