Working with Glocal has been transformative for our organization at a critical time. Through their hands-on yet strategic methodology, we were able to design a path forward that we expect to take us from a regional organization to a global leader in International Development.

How they helped:
– Quickly got up to speed on our complex programmatic context, our challenges and how to strengthen our leadership for our next stage of growth.
– Conducted probing interviews, effectively and synthesized the insights in a succinct and practical way.
– Given the growth Glasswing has experienced over the past few years, they were able to put together a comprehensive report and follow-up conference discussion that helped us to organize ourselves and our planning in the immediate; while adding a facilitation session which brought it all to life and helped us to make it actionable, leading us to an implementable plan

I recommend working with Rachel and Glocal ASAP if you are looking to push your organization forward ambitiously, helping you to focus and align a plan with your strengths, helping to lead you where you really need to go.

Rachel Patterson is one of the most dynamic and effective international consultants I have ever met – she’s a culturally sensitive, pragmatic, inspired and incredibly knowledgeable business advisor. She worked with several, very different businesses during her time in Jordan, coached us ALL with sensitivity to our specific logistical and cultural challenges, engaged all education levels, and helped us ALL better understand our respective markets.
