Michael Evison

Thank you for the incredible quality and quantity of work that you have done on our Theatre Strategic Plan. We are so happy that we chose you to travel this road with us. I don’t think anyone else would have been able to get us to the point you have. You have done an amazing job and it will give much needed direction to us and those coming up in the future.


You were professional, well prepared, good listener, created opportunity for new ideas and clarifying thoughts, facilitated a great process to get a “report card” on activities achieved and got us to an end point on time!!


Paul was excellent to work with and is incredibly detail oriented with a wealth of knowledge in the non-profit arts sector. His insight and recommendations as to how we may best improve the operations of our public arts centre was invaluable and fine-tuned beyond just the regular, day-to-day workings of a public space. He gave his undivided attention to the task and I would highly recommend Paul.
