“Williamson College of the Trades has been working with Calico for about 18 months. We initially engaged Jill and Tom to perform an independent evaluation of our entire Advancement Office including personnel, structure, strengths, weaknesses, immediate and future needs, etc. We were so impressed that we subsequently engaged them to assist us in our search for a new SR. VP of Advancement, and most recently, to lead our Strategic Planning process which culminated with an offsite Trustee retreat and adoption of a new visionary and bold Strategic Plan. Jill and Tom were the driving force behind getting the Trustees, President, senior Staff and faculty energized and all pulling in the same direction.”
