Board Facilitation


We offer professional board facilitation services. Through these facilitations we strive to help companies or non-profit organizations identify their strategic objectives for the year and assist them in developing a plan to accomplish those objectives. We incorporate team building exercises, identification of strengths and weaknesses, and much more into these meetings.

Another area of focus is the facilitation of customer advisory boards (CABs) for hotels, convention bureaus, convention centers and meeting planning companies. The work with CABs is conducted in collaboration with Global Marketing Services (GMS), a well-respected marketing organization, founded in 1993. GMS has continued to grow with the increasing demand organizations have in developing stronger relationships with their customers through the formation and facilitation of customer advisory boards, focus groups and training programs for all facets of the meeting and hospitality industry.

“Terri (Breining) brings integrity to every aspect of her role as leader of our Customer Advisory Board, one part cajoler; one part mentor. She has long been engaged with Vancouver's ambitions to be the best in meetings & conventions as well as events, and has both coached and encouraged our Tourism Vancouver dreams into practical achievements.

Rick Antonson President & CEO, Tourism Vancouver

“Your positive attitude and encouragement was very much appreciated. You kept stressing that you knew we could do it, don’t over think it and since we had the experience to be there, you knew we had the ability to make it happen. You helped me see the financials in a different light, which has been very useful to me.”

Bobbi Keller, CMP, CMM Director of Corporate Events and Conferences, BNY Mellon

“When MARCOM, the leading event on Marketing Communications in Amsterdam, the Netherlands coincided with an educational track we were organising for the MPI Netherlands Chapter, I had no hesitation to contact Terri Breining to share with us the insights on how Meetings fit into the Marketing Communications Mix. Terri is charming, engaging and can get the audience engaged in a way that is convincing and sincere. Her message is eloquent and results impressive.”

Ruud Janssen Founder, New Objective Collective, Board member MPI International 2010–2011
