Testimonial 1
I thank my stars that Janet Cobb appeared on my radar when she did. As my agency embarked on a strategic planning process, Janet offered us the kind of knowledgeable and experienced guidance that led to focused and purposeful planning. She was available, and as tactful or direct as needed, as she helped us form the strategic steps needed to expand our capacity and create a more sensible corporate structure. We are well on our way, and I don’t think that we could have done it without Janet. -- B. Burghardt, Interfaith Action of Evanston
