History and Accomplishments

 

"What a great workshop!  Thank you for the invitation.  You held my interest the entire day and I really loved all of the interaction.  I learned new techniques and realized how very powerful a facilitator role is.  Always knew it was an important role, but after yesterday realized how pivotal a role it is."

"Ms. Peterson-More often says that her goal is to help us achieve our goals. I can say that without doubt, Diana Peterson-More and OEG have consistently and reliably assisted the companies I have represented and me in achieving the results sought."

More client feedback

"Diana Peterson-More is a true professional who quickly assessed our agency's needs and developed realistic and do-able plans for improving our organizational capacity. Without Diana's help, it would have taken us months to get close to what she accomplished in a few weeks."
