“Jeff’s strategic planning facilitation in my opinion was invaluable for our group. It enabled us to focus our project into clearly defined, manageable, realistic units with assigned responsibility. I left with a much more positive attitude and a much better understanding of what my role will be within the organization.”

– Rozalyn Harris, board member, Burnaby Restorative Action Group

“Jeff has a profound understanding of what is required to achieve objectives. It took him very little time to understand the complexities of our organization. He was able to sort through the emotionality of the situation and, with respect and care for the individuals involved, guide them carefully to developing a shared vision and plan. All this on time and under budget!”

– Wendy Vernon, president, Performing Arts BC

“Jeff has delivered numerous workshops for us to a diverse range of not-for-profits, both as a volunteer and a contractor. He consistently receives rave reviews from workshop participants and is knowledgeable about board governance and organizational development issues. He is a practical, experienced and professional trainer, combining humour, energy and interactive techniques in his delivery. Jeff is a tremendous asset to Volunteer Vancouver and it’s a pleasure to work with him.”

– Allison Felker, professional development, Volunteer Vancouver

“We were very impressed with Jeff’s facilitation style. He is engaging, collaborative, and possesses a great sense of humour! Our communication plan is something we can really ‘run with.’ It is practical, user-friendly, and has realistic outcome measurements attached. I would highly recommend Jeffrey Rotin to any organization that wants a really tangible product!”

– Jenn McGinn, executive director, South Granville Seniors Centre

“When the Progressive Housing Society embarked upon its first strategic planning in 23 years, Jeff provided a well organized, thought-provoking and engaging day of learning and brainstorming. Board members and management staff alike enjoyed the process that Jeff used to lead the organization to the point of articulating its key activities and outcomes for the coming year. For the first time in decades the activities of our organization became truly outcomes based. We are looking forward to working with Jeff again to further develop our long-term goals.”

– Lynn Wood, executive director, Progressive Housing Society
