Rhythm clients are loving our new virtual facilitation solution.

Facilitated Strategy, Annual, and Quarterly Planning

"We had a great experience with our 2-day mid-year virtual planning session with Chris and Tiffany. It was SuperGreen with focus, participation, and results. It was better than expected and our team is enthusiastic to do it again."
 

- Dr. Vogt, Founder and CEO of BioPlus

BioPlus-262-1

Turned a 2-day full session into 3 half-day sessions 

"The results were amazing. Virtual planning gave us the flexibility to transform our in-person 2-day planning session into shorter highly focused deep dive sessions addressing critically important topics over 3 half days. Our team was focused and engaged, and we enjoyed the discussion and came out highly aligned with clear actionable steps to take. It was one of our most productive sessions."

- Mark Nussbaum, COO of Signature Consultants

Quarterly Execution Planning with Custom Prep

"We ran our virtual annual planning meeting over 3 days and asked Alan to join on the last day to help us focus on execution planning. He worked with us to plan the entire event even though he was only there for the last day. On that day he made sure we pulled everything together into a cohesive, actionable plan.
