What Clients Are Saying

“Thank you so much Geoff. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and all the VCH team were most grateful for your professionalism and support.”

Belinda Boyd Leader, Community Engagement, Vancouver Coastal Health

“ At its meeting on June 24, 2010, the Regional Board approved adoption of the Strategic Plan. Your professional approach and your patience were a major factor contributing to the success of this project. Both directors and staff have enjoyed working with you. We will certainly keep you in mind if other projects requiring your skills arise.”

Francis Ladret Administrator, Powell River Regional District

“ Please also convey my thanks to Geoff for setting the stage and creating a great atmosphere. This is just the beginning of the healing for that community, but I think you…enabled a good healthy start.”

Dr. David Ostrow President/CEO Vancouver Coastal Health

“We have had the fortune of experiencing Geoff’s skill and talent multiple times.  On each occasion he has delivered.  One of his keys to success is his understanding of the client’s needs and his ability to draw out thoughts, ideas or comments that turn into beneficial substance.  As a careful listener and an objective, non-partisan, unbiased facilitator, he captures the intent and extracts essence, making for a valuable and productive investment in time and energy.  Geoff achieves these results because of the rapport he builds and respect he garners with all of the participants; no matter if they are from differing grounding.  Geoff is a dedicated professional and a credit to his trained expertise.  If you are searching for results and success, Geoff will facilitate you there.”

Al Radke BSBA, CLGM Chief Administrative Officer, Powell River Regional District



“I’ve used InFocus Facilitation successfully on a number of occasions, most recently to produce our strategic plan. Working with Geoff is always productive. He both is persuaded and persuades by rational argument, something that I find refreshing. I expect when I hire a company like InFocus that I am hiring an expert and that means that they won’t be shy in talking me out of doing things that might not have the best outcome. I value that facet of InFocus highly. Geoff is always clear and strategic in his thinking and diplomatic in his presentation. I also appreciate that, no matter the role in our organization, every single person seems to relate well to Geoff. The importance of this cannot be overstated because it means that people feel comfortable providing input and that is exactly what we want to achieve when we hire a facilitator. I unreservedly recommend Geoff Allan and InFocus Facilitation.”

Charlie Kregel Chief Librarian, Powell River Public Library


“While we were motoring back on the water to the Lower Coast on a beautiful calm sunny evening we had a chance to talk about how the planning day had gone. All spoke about how helpful you had been in moving the day along and that your calm relaxed approach really helped to achieve the goals we set for the day. I want to add my personal thanks for all the work you did to prepare for the day and for being so flexible in moving the items and times around during the day – I realize that none of the others knew that we had rejigged the day to the extent we did. They simply felt that the day was very worthwhile and provided us with direction to move forward. Your planning and approach were very much appreciated.”
