Winner of the Strategic Non-Profit of the Year, Stacie Callies, Executive Director of Westown Association, said, “We are honored to receive this award. We have created a strategic plan through 2025, and it will take the organization to the next level, in a time when many non-profits are faltering because of the year-long pandemic that halted most corporate sponsorship. The strategic planning process completely shifted the dynamic of our small organization. Our board is now fully engaged in our future.”
Winner of the Strategic Business of the Year, Joey Barian, CEO of Extension, Inc., said, “I cannot thank Darren and his team enough, for the guidance, coaching and mentoring that they’ve done over the past year with us. We challenged every corner of our business and powered through what could have been one of our worst years ever. I am surrounded by the hardest working people I have the privilege to work with, and we have people in the right spot.”
Morgan Nielsen, Kane Communications Group, winner of Strategic Leader of the Year, said, “Using the SPEARity system, and having Darren as a coach, has helped me through one of the most challenging years of my life, professionally and personally. There’s a lot of value to having someone in your corner, which has allowed me to be that person in someone else’s corner – being that empathetic heart-led leader who is making the world a better place and not just a more profitable place.”
