“Your work representing the Puget Sound Blood Center and helping us increase community awareness of the Blood Center’s programs in Southwest Washington has been exceedingly helpful for us. Your knowledge of the community and your many contacts have been been critical factors in recruiting community leaders as advocates and advisors to the Blood Program, including a board member from Vancouver. We have been pleased with your counsel, but also with your skilled assistance in organizing events and gaining us introductions to knowledgeable and influential leaders in the community. In addition to the accomplishments, it has been a consistent pleasure to work with you, both for me and for our community relations and our development staff members.”

“I just want to say how much I am enjoying working with and learning from you. You are teaching us to look at CAP and the community in completely new and exciting ways. The feasibility study continues to be useful, but of equal or greater value to me is how you have been broadening and stretching our horizons of the possible.

It feels truly fortuitous that you have come to us at this time.”

“I’ve had the opportunity now to work with Mike Westby on three different initiatives locally. I find Mike to be professional, focused and candid, three traits I would not ascribe to many of the other folks in Mike’s industry. Mike has a well developed network and an uncanny ability to know which aspects of his network to call on at any given time.”

“While working with Mike during my tenure as Executive Director of Open Meadow Schools he really helped us to think and act strategically. He helped us to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. As a result of that perspective we were able to create and share a vision with the community that energized our organization and connected it to strategic partners.”

“It is with great pleasure to tell you that working with Westby Associates was powerful, deliverable, and outcome driven. Mike Westby and staff were able to relate to our needs, build relationships, create thought provoking questions, and at the end, the results were greater than we had anticipated. Mike Westby’s sense of direction and humor creates a richer environment for those who attend their workshops. Westby Associates workshops by far out distance any previous workshops I have ever attended.”

“Westby Associates, Inc. was key in focusing our non-profit with our strategic planning initiatives and the formulation of those initiatives into a strategic plan. I’m impressed with how efficient the service is and how much we’ve benefited in our prioritizing of goals. Westby Associate’s personal business insight is refreshing, engaging, extremely candid, and inspiring. I appreciate it when a consultant challenges the status quo and can guide us in new directions we never saw before. Their passion for what they do is evident in every call, meeting and email. Westby Associates went above and beyond their pledge of participation. I really feel like they made a difference. We will certainly work with Westby Associates as we revisit our strategic plan for evaluation, progress and updating.”
