Kylie’s webinar on sustainability and her knowledge on the subject have been invaluable to our grantees and our overall capacity building work at the Health Fund. We’ve had her present three times to our grantees and the feedback has been very positive.

Kylie is one of my favorite presenters and facilitators…I saw her present this topic at the American Evaluation Association conference last year and it was a standing room only in a huge ballroom. Since that session, I’ve used my notes many times and have started to change how I do my work.

Kylie was an excellent keynote speaker for our Indiana Evaluation Association 2017 Conference. She was great to work with - very responsive, flexible, knowledgeable, and creative. Kylie’s presentation at our conference was interactive and engaging, filled with fun stories and helpful take-aways around reporting techniques and creative ways to share our evaluation findings. I especially appreciated how Kylie was truly present for our whole conference, engaging with our conference attendees and participating in our various conference break-out sessions. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Kylie on our IEA conference and highly recommend her as a keynote speaker and presenter!

I have been through LOTS of sustainability training before, yet your two hours yesterday brought me some delightful and unexpected "Aha" moments.
Kathy Barber, Pathways to Positive Parenting, Coos Bay
Kylie’s ability to relate planning and evaluation concepts to everyday life made our workshops enjoyable and effective. Her enthusiasm and expertise were second to none; we’d have her back any day of the week.
Veronica Montgomery, Foundational Standards Manager, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health
Kylie presented a session on program sustainability to SharED in Vernon which is a professional development group for Executive Directors of non-profit organizations. The presentation and tools provided were useful, on target and very much appreciated.

Kylie is an evaluation translator. She provides accessible analogies for staff to understand evaluation concepts and to make the process meaningful for all involved.

Thank you so much for facilitating this strategic planning process for us. You were perfect — the right amount of visioning and tasking, and we appreciated your patience and good humour.
Nanette Taylor, Executive Director, Hollyburn Family Services Society
We were so pleased with the results when we hired Community Solutions that we hired them again and again. Knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with are just some of the reasons that we have repeatedly hired Kylie.

Enormous tasks, brilliantly discharged.
Ross Harvey, Executive Director, Positive Living BC
Thank you for the great work you did on the evaluation of our grant-making activities. We particularly appreciated how quickly you were able to understand our issues and the professional and confidential approach you took when working with our stakeholders. The report you prepared for us will be an invaluable help to us as we move the organization forward.
BC Health Education Foundation Board of Directors
We were very pleased with the evaluation training workshop Kylie presented to our staff. She tailored the sessions so we could work through our own specific requirements, and offered a font of knowledge within the short time available. We highly recommend her skills to other organizations wanting to work on the ‘messy business’ of program evaluation!
