Reviewing a strategic plan every three to five years is typical in many organizations.  In-between formal reviews, organizations may require strategic discussions with key knowledge holders. This can be a daunting task; especially with new leaders or board members. A good approach to strategic planning is to understand your current situation. 


Carole meets with all clients to discuss what exactly is the desired outcome and what success looks like.  Is there a current strategic plan or is this a brand-new exercise? If there is a plan, have  the goals and objectives been attained? How has the landscape changed in the organization, industry or community?


A facilitator can help determine who you serve, develop goals and objectives, identify values, and create mission and vision statements.

Professional development learning can be a very formal process, such as a workshop, or can be informal, such as networking and sharing ideas from like-minded professionals in a community of practice.

Learning can be customized to suit your organization and tailored for in-person, or virtual live facilitator-led delivery.



Add a learning event to your next conference, AGM or professional development day. Several workshops can be tailored to 30-, 60-, or 90-minutes to fit your agenda.

Your facilitation style, while relaxed and engaging, also challenged us and brought us to a place where we were proud of what was accomplished at the evening’s end.

It was my first session with you. I now understand why people and organizations seek you, which I see daily on LinkedIn.

I was very impressed by your cool headedness and you are personable. I think the project we were working on required quick thinking and planning and you helped to lead the process and comfortably involved all the stakeholders. Great job!

I’m extremely happy with the training provided by Carole, she is a warm and knowledgeable woman. What I liked most about the training, was that it was delivered in a professional manner with a side of personality. The virtual platforms and the program content were applicable and easy to use and follow. I highly recommend the programs themselves and Carole is a great facilitator!

Wendy Secord
Program Coordinator, Gander Status of Women Council
I’ve been in a lot of meetings and work sessions, in both academic and non-academic settings, and I’ve never seen one that was planned as carefully as Carole’s and yet maintained almost complete flexibility as the schedule, mood, or focus level in the room shifted. I wish we could afford to fly her down to New York to manage acrimonious faculty meetings.

I have been a participant in planning days organized by Carole Spicer, and am always impressed by how well they are organized and reach results that help organizations in their next steps. She makes it easy, low stress, and meets every expectation.
