An effective facilitator must be able engage people in discussion in a group environment, be an active listener, interpret what is being said by the participants and accurately communicate those results to the client. Pat Forrest is recognized for these skills and abilities.
It has been my pleasure to work with Pat on a few projects. I have enjoyed her professionalism, her dedication, her incredible literary capabilities and her contagious enthusiasm. It impresses me when Pat pitches in and helps the entire team to be successful instead of just focusing on her portion of the project. When facilitating, she has the experience to know what questions to ask; the tenacity to find the answers; and the skills to present the findings in compelling and understandable terms. When coordinating events or conferences, she has exceptional organizational abilities; unique ideas; and a cutting edge knack for marketing. Regardless of the idea or project, Pat is someone who can shape a successful outcome. She is a great person to have on speed dial.
