1000 Feathers dove deep into our history, operations, and online presence. They presented their findings in a report and discussion that was touted as “ridiculously impressive” by one of our Board members. They gave us data-based insight into our current impact and provided logical, yet creative, strategic suggestions for building upon strengths. Our growth has fallen into place because of their detailed, data-driven, and creative recommendations.
