I loved working with Laura, Mac, and their talented team at McAlpine Consulting. They made the process of Strategic Planning fun, productive, and engaging with ambitious outcomes. We achieved our goals from that plan – finishing our Universal Design campaign and successfully moving into our newly renovated UD building, strengthening our board, diversifying our support, increasing engagement of our staff team, expanding our reach through satellites, increasing Quality Assurance with CQL Accreditation, launching a new Employment program for adults with IDD, and increasing our visibility with the hiring of a Marketing Communications Manager. This was nearly 10 years ago but McAlpine’s impact can still be felt today!

McAlpine Consulting for Growth has helped Aids Foundation Chicago with so many projects – leadership coaching, strategic planning, team-building, program assessment, and design. The list goes on. The McAlpine team is smart, hard-working, knowledgeable, creative, flexible, and most importantly for me, fun. Thank you, Laura and team!
