"I've worked with a wide variety of skilled consultants over the years and have found my experience with Starboard Leadership Consulting to be exceptional on every front. Starboard has provided us with wisdom, guidance and support at major strategic moments. I have called upon their team for strategic planning, to help us with board and agency-wide engagement, for leadership training and senior leadership team development, and merger consultation.
