“Newman Consulting was great to work with. The Newman Team’s positive energy, expertise, and execution helped Edmonton Scottish Society to secure nearly $3 million worth of grant funding. Our project had some hiccups but Rhonda and Derek helped keep us focused on our end goal of moving our mission ahead.”

“I want to say a huge thank you to Rhonda and Derek for their coaching and organizing Vermilion and District Housing Foundation staff and volunteers to reach this level of success in our community!! The end of the contract has concluded and it came way too fast. We have all been very comfortable with the background support, advice, lots of expertise and friendship we have experienced with Rhonda and Derek. 

We have all grown and learned much from our association with Newman Consulting.

Thank you again for helping us achieve and surpass our campaign goal which blesses the lives of our seniors for many years to come!”

“Rhonda Newman is an expert in her field. When we began our rebuild project at The Varscona Theatre none of us knew where or how to start our capital campaign. Rhonda showed us the path, had the expertise, and was able to guide us towards our goal. Together we raised the funds to give Edmonton a beautiful new cultural center in the heart of Old Strathcona.”

“Our organization really benefited from Rhonda’s help and guidance. She got many of our board members over their fears of fund-raising, and her teaching and coaching was invaluable in moving us forward. She also taught us a new line that I’ve now used in many parts of my life: Bless and release.”

“Rhonda Newman developed and delivered a set of engaging and valuable workshops for many regional and local community organizations.
What stands out about Rhonda is that she is engaging, listens well and was able to adapt her expertise to our group’s and the individuals within the group’s needs.
Her experiential approach reinforces learning and provided our participants with much to think about as well as skills to apply when back in their own organizations.
Feedback was excellent from all participants.”
