Ultimately, we work with you to transform your communities and food systems to make the world a better place.
“KTC were great communicators in the lead up to our day together and flexible in helping us reach our intended goals while meeting our budgetary needs. Furthermore, the day of was well designed, well facilitated, and I appreciated the insight both Jen & Miles shared based on prior experiences.”
— Adam Goldberg, Head of Farmer Empowerment, Flow Kana
“The pre-meeting planning was very helpful to organize our team and our approach to the facilitated meeting. In the meeting, the facilitators moved the diverse group through an ambitious agenda, while making sure that we heard from everyone in the room.”
— Julie Fetherston, Healthy Mendocino
“The individual mentoring was one of the highlights of the services KTC offered. Prior to UVA, my experience running or facilitating a meeting has been little to none. I have not had an opportunity to work with someone on a personal level to create and strengthen my facilitating skills. Jen created a “neutral environment” where I felt comfortable in asking questions without feeling judge or humiliated. Jen has provided me with tools that I will use not just in UVA but also in my work and personal life. In our short time, she has taught me how to confidently work through difficult conversations, set clear expectation for a meeting and communicate them with the group. Each meeting provided an opportunity of reflection, learning how to identify areas that need improvement, creating a plan and continue to practice, and self-empowerment. One of the many tools I will value is learning how incorporate my genuine self in all area of my work place; being true to my identity. “
