Our venture into the process of redefining our organizational mission, vision and values, through to a coherent strategic plan for the next 3 years has been a dynamic and powerful journey! This has been possible as a result of the inspired mentoring of Blue Dot Strategy. 

Drawing upon their extensive experience and work in the corporate sector, Blue Dot was able to present and communicate concepts and expertise from the business world in ways that were surprisingly transferable to our work in community development. They have enabled us to discover and implement a renewed and powerful focus as a non-profit charitable organization!
