Every one of us has, at some point, been sitting in a meeting thinking to ourselves that there's got to be a better way.
That's why we started NYCMF. From day one, our goal has always been to help people have meetings that become a launchpad for change and success. What sets us apart is our preparation. We approach your needs with our belief in the potential of good meetings to change and shape an organization's future. Everyone on our team loves people and truly enjoys being a part of making a meeting matter.
Our goal is to help design and deliver the most effective meeting possible, so we don’t use a generic facilitation method, we design approaches that meet your needs. We strive to not only be a key resource in planning and execution to supplement your team and its work, but also to seamlessly integrate into your ecosystem, to use your industry language and framework.
We wear many hats at NYCMF. We are entrepreneurs, business leaders, musicians, strategists, artists, inventors, poets and consultants. And we bring all those perspectives, real enthusiasm, positive energy, and thorough professionalism to our facilitation efforts.
