shapes that I couldn't say any other way -

“Laurie Miller recently facilitated the Creative Inlet Workshop with our Senior Human Resources Leadership Team.  Laurie’s facilitation of this workshop helped to provide the creative “kick-start” that we were hoping for as we headed into our strategic planning and team building sessions.  I found myself more centered, focused and open to new possibilities.  It set the right foundation for more creative problem solving later in the day; setting a framework for our team to more fully explore new opportunities and untapped potential.  Any leadership team seeking to develop more generative thinking and improved collaboration would greatly benefit from this workshop.”
