What makes us different from other facilitators?​


No two meetings are the same, so we don't facilitate that way. Also, we are trained graphic facilitators, and this allows us to keep information visually organized and more appealing. Helping people see their work improves focus and participation.


We exude "can-do." No organization or team is too dysfunctional for us to work with. Just try to break us, we love a challenge!


If you are in Charleston SC, you are in luck: so are we. No more flying in big-city consultants or trying to scrape by​ with internal staff who aren't properly trained. We are your neighbors and we are leaders in our field!
