Abby did an outstanding job in facilitating a Visioning session for our leadership team. She prepared well and was able to manage the flow of ideas throughout the day. In particular, Abby was adept at bringing the day to closure in an effective manner.

I hired Abby for a consultation on the design of a session with a senior leadership team. I decided to call Abby because I’ve seen how skilled she is in the design of facilitation events. I was so right in making this call – Abby was an excellent thought partner and coach. She asked provocative and valuable questions and helped me look at both the internal (my own thinking) and external challenges related to this session. Together, in a few short hours, we put together an awesome facilitation plan. Abby should be your “Go To” thought partner to help in designing a program.

There are several times that I have participated in meetings that were facilitated by Abby Yanow. She stands out in the facilitation field due to her extraordinary talent and experience. Abby brings out the best in a group by doing the following:
- Prepares the content and designs the sequence of events to maximize effectiveness
- Is a superb and patient listener
- Radiates calm, confidence and energy at the same time
Partners seamlessly with other presenter/facilitators
- Deeply understands human dynamics and what can be accomplished in a meeting
- Keeps the group’s needs above her own
- Is willing to change course when a shift is needed.
I very much look forward to participating in any future workshops that Abby offers.
