Latest Review: Being in charge of a unique Adventure Education Facility (NPO), I was skeptical of Michael's ability to offer valuable insight that would be applicable to our facility - since we do not operate like your typical camp. After sharing my concerns with Michael, he chuckled and began to share with me his incredibly diverse and eclectic background. Needless to say, my concerns were alleviated and we moved forward with a site visit.
Michael was extremely friendly and reassuring in person. During our facility walk through he asked very good questions (some of which I did not know the answer to.) and showed a genuine interest in the facility and creative options for generating new revenue. After a long and informative discussion about our facility, I was still full of questions, so I asked Michael if I could take him to dinner and pick his brain a little more (boy did I get the better end of that deal!). At dinner Michael was able to introduce me to / put me in contact with several of his local colleagues from the ACA, and various other organizations, which have been an INVALUABLE resource!!!
Within a week of the consultation, Michael sent us an extremely detailed report on potential options and suggestions for our facility, along with some incredible resources on maintaining staff, and trainings.
It has been roughly six months since our original consultation, and after implementing several of Michael suggestions (especially those related to networking). I am pleased to say that we have booked 3 new schools for year long programs, are now partnered with local colleges as a staffing resource, and have implemented several new academic programs that have been a huge hit with the kids!
Thank you Michael for all that you do!
Executive Director of Colorado Adventure Point
