ESU has provided evaluation services for the NCNS for a number of our programs over the years. Ida and Robin have consistently provided knowledgeable, respectful and articulate services and feedback to the NCNS. The written reports and recommendations developed from collecting data, input from our clients and partners has proven invaluable to our organization in developing and designing programs going forward.  In addition to the evaluation services, ESU have also provided their service in the development of our 5 year strategic business plan for our employment and training services.  I would recommend ESU for any of the above noted services your company requires.

Ida is a very attentive and intuitive coach with an incredible life of experience to draw upon. With clear thinking and a warm encouraging tone, she is keenly attuned to understanding what sits between the lines. She challenged me to see a fuller picture of my capabilities. I think even big dreams can slip into the nooks and crannies and it takes some strong mastery to help unpick and reposition the possible! Ida helped me unblock and build blocks for an improved personal and professional balanced life. Of course, it is forever a work in progress!

We engaged Ida to work with us in developing our three year strategic plan and Board Governance model. Ida brought extensive knowledge, professionalism and support to us as she facilitated our sessions in preparing our plan. Ida is a strong leader and passionate about the work she does and it certainly shows in the organizational abilities to get the task completed! We were extremely pleased with the process and fortunate to have Ida work with us.
