Barb did a great job guiding our board through a retreat that helped us evaluate our current strategic plan and set goals for the future. She kept board members engaged throughout and many commented on her positive energy and passion for helping others.

I became the President of a small non-profit a year ago. Even though I am a seasoned fundraiser it has been difficult for me to create a fundraising plan that is feasible. Our non-profit contracted with Barb Lyon to assist us with this process. Barb was able to quickly understand our non-profit- its culture, history, audiences, and needs. Barb has a wealth of knowledge and ideas that she has been able to share with us. She has produced unique ideas for all levels of fundraising and stewardship that both fits our organization and our pocketbook. Barb is meticulous, patient, adaptive, creative, and thoughtful in her approaches. Barb has worked well with our Board of Directors and staff. We have had to change course mid-way because of extenuating circumstances within our organization and Barb put us right back on track. I have also utilized Lyon & Co. for staff and board management crises and have had very positive results. We have a fluid fundraising/stewardship plan and I highly recommend Lyon & Co.

I’ve watched for years, and with great respect, how Barb Lyon brings folks together in a collaborative fashion to navigate and solve complex issues and problems. Barb truly understands the value of connectedness and her communication skills, empathy and understanding helps “move the dial” within any team or community she works with. She is a person of integrity and authenticity that quickly makes her respected and relatable.

Barb is sunshine personified. Her servant heart and leadership style inspire passion and empower you to reach your full potential. She has taught me the importance of playing to my strengths and finding my "why" - helping me become a better writer, a stronger relationship-builder, and a more effective fundraiser. Truly one of a kind!
