" We accomplished more in two days with Ingrid than we would have done in months on our own!"
Becky Lewis / Trinity Christian Academy
" Using her exceptional strategic planning skills, and overcoming considerable obstacles inherent in an institution filled with inertia and traditions, Ingrid worked with us to ensure that a plan was developed that was not only reasoned and tactical, but was an excellent representation of the joyful nature of our school community."
Peter Sturrup / Pickering College
" In an international school where many families venture from countries where the word "philanthropy" does not even exist in their language, nor the concept of charitable giving a part of their culture – Ingrid was able to provide a model that inspired passionate support through a donor-centered focus that enhanced not only our fundraising efforts, but also our constituent relations efforts. It is a model that transcends language and culture – a remarkable feat in today's global community."
