Judith F. Clark, M.P.H.
Executive Director
Hawaii Youth Services Network

"Joy Gold has worked with Hawaii Youth Services Network on several major projects in the past few years. She facilitated the process "Future Directions", a long-range planning and organizational revitalization effort, resulting in greater member involvement and enthusiasm. Joy trained focus group facilitators for Teenline. We now have a new slogan for the hotline and a teen advisory board updating our tapes on topic ranging from communication with parents to stress management. Her strategic planning and legislative bill tracking services increased the effectiveness of Hawaii Youth Service Network's legislative education and advocacy efforts this year.

Joy Gold has a broad based understanding of the health and human services community in Hawaii and the issues facing non-profit organizations today. Unlike many consultants whose experience is primarily with the for-profit sector, she does not need to be educated about the differences between a non-profit organization and a commercial business before we can begin work, only informed about our specific issues and goals.

When you hire Joy Gold as a consultant, you can expect high quality work, timely communication and support, and a usable end product."

Graham Hadley
Hadley RehaB
Hawaii Chapter American Physical Therapy Association
Legislative Chair

"Joy is very knowledgeable, conscientious and reliably provides useful and accurate insights and strategies. Through consistent effort and approach, she has effectively guided us to passage of several important bills!

We have no desire to try anyone else. Joy is friendly, efficient, well informed and organized. Most often, legislators relax, smile and ask how they can be of assistance when Joy is with us.

Joy is very accessible and quick to respond and promptly takes appropriate action. Her consistency has greatly enhanced our Association's professional image."


John McComas, MPH
Chief Executive Officer
AlohaCare

"Joy has assisted AlohaCare in working with our Board of Directors in terms of organizing and conducting retreats involving their training and strategic planning as well as team building, planning and goal setting for our dozen management staff.

Joy is very professional, extremely well organized, highly focused, very creative, goal oriented, outcome directed, provides excellence in customer service, and protects my time by keeping us constantly "on track". Somehow, she is able to do all this and remains a great pleasure to work with at all times.

She is experienced at facilitation, is highly productive, and keeps questioning until the desired outcome is clearly defined. She has assisted AlohaCare through a challenging set of changes and has been able to help us make dramatic growth and development strides especially when we seemed "stuck".

Joy has provided great assistance to AlohaCare in all our interactions. She brings great value to any undertaking that involves her."
