Lifes2Good Foundation contracted 2into3 to conduct an evaluation of the first five years of the foundation. Their Associate Consultant, Fiona, worked collaboratively with the CEO of Lifes2good Foundation and designed a process that engaged all key stakeholders. Fiona’s real skill was delivering on that process. Her approach in one-to-one interviews allowed people to open up – she worked in a nuanced way. She was diplomatic when she needed to be, but that did not stop her from addressing some challenging subjects. The professional way in which Fiona wrote up the final document matched the way she conducted the process. This rendered the final product both very useful and useable for us in the foundation. It was also very educational and enjoyable to work with Fiona.” – Maurice McQuillan, Chief Executive Officer, Lifes2Good Foundation
