“It takes a special blend of orchestration to make the strategic planning process effective when multiple sectors wish to collaborate.  Elizabeth Schuster has the ability to bring together a variety of organizations with differing structures and missions to develop a consensus for a new project and even a new organization…Further, she worked with an enthusiasm and collaborative process that made me look forward to the sessions. I highly recommend Sustainable Economies Consulting for complex strategic planning.”
