business in many
ways over the years. She has the rare ability to really listen to what
dreams and visions are and then propose totally realistic, do-able steps

Colette... Thank you for organizing the speaking date with Tim Strom.
This allowed our middle and high school students to recharge their
batteries and bring life to recalibrating who they are, where they are
going, and how they are going to be fulfilled... with his inspiring and
empowering message that failure is normal in our everyday activities
but does not define us!"

Ms. Acheson had been recommended to our
office by PDD South Region. Together we have developed an upcoming
community event which will encourage interaction between the disabled
and non-disabled population in southern Alberta, and also is working on
our behalf to produce and publish a new book containing stories and
essays from many of the families we serve.
working with her on the book as well as some of our new presentation
materials, I have been impressed with Colette's ability to communicate
in ways that can inspire and connect us to each other. Colette has
demonstrated repeatedly her respect and commitment to advocacy for all,
and has a good understanding of our needs and processes as a non-profit
operating under the direction of a board.

plan. Ms. Acheson was instrumental in refining the ArcSys FrameWorks
business plan and providing much appreciated enthusiasm for the project.
She went the extra mile without hesitation, and provided finishing
services beyond what most would have expected from a consultant. Thank
you Colette, may your future associates enjoy working with you as much
as I have.
Addison Lanier, ocada,
Colette, in a very friendly, down to earth, professional
manner, listened to, supported and expanded on my ideas for a small
business. She willingly shared her expertise
as a sales guru, her connections to a network of relevant businesses, associations
and organizations and her knowledge of the
community. Any doubts I had for moving forward with my business ideas vanished
after only one productive, informative meeting.

work as a writer and editing consultant is very specialized. Concerned
about developing some professional promotional materials, I sought the
