Hear From Our Clients

"USA Swimming hired Phil Bergey and Design Group International to facilitate a review of the mid-level structure and governance of our national organization. We found Phil, and his associate Mark Vincent, to be very responsive, perceptive, and insightful as well as extremely professional. They led our task force through a process that gathered data from key stakeholders, evaluated that information, considered different levels of potential change, and provided a set of recommendations to address current and future needs. I have the utmost respect for Phil and Mark and the Design Group International team."

"Dawn broke down barriers, engaged the group with activities, and helped our leaders feel a sense of safety to promote meaningful conversation. Dawn & the DGI team did a phenomenal job structuring a leadership training course balancing world-class theory and practical application. A worthwhile investment for the CF team!"

"Design Group International’s listening, helping, and learning approach didn’t tell us what to do; they didn’t drop a list of recommendations my desk. Lon helped us get to where we could come up with our own answers and make our own decisions. He facilitated us through that process.

Once the whole board agreed what the community really valued and wanted from Blandford Nature Center, only then could the board and leadership together work as a cohesive unit and craft a plan forward."

"Matt has been incredible to work with! Matt's process consulting engages organizations and teams in a way that is more holistic and comprehensive than traditional "product consulting" for strategic planning. He elicits feedback from the organization and its constituents, creating a truly comprehensive plan that serves as a living document, rather than collecting dust. I highly recommend Matt for your consulting needs!"
