Blumenthal Performing Arts
“Andi did a masterful job in guiding our Board through a one-day retreat.  Months later, our Trustees still feel the uplift of thoughtful discussions and reflection that she led the group through.”
Tom Gabbard, CEO, Blumenthal Performing Arts (Charlotte)
“Andi’s innate ability to lead authentically, listen effectively, and respond with true understanding and empathy is a testament to her outstanding skillset and experience as a presenter and facilitator. As a result, she produced a program for our women’s retreat that resonated on both a personal and professional level with our audience. The program was a tremendous success.”

“In November of 2018, the Board of Directors of CERF+—the Artists’ Safety Net—was so fortunate to spend the day in a facilitated planning retreat with Andi Stevenson, focusing on board engagement, governance and strategic visioning. From our initial conversations, it was clear that Andi understood the critical issues our board was facing and how we could address them in a retreat setting. From this experience, I give her my highest recommendation. Andi is smart, extremely organized and efficient, focused on results, a deep listener and a great synthesizer. Most importantly, Andi was passionate about our work and, in such a short time, was able to move us many steps forward. She really hit the mark for us, and we are deeply thankful to her.”
Cornelia Carey, Executive Director, Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+)
“Working with Andi was a delight from start to finish. She was all the things you want and need a consultant to be: knowledgeable, professional, hard-working, responsive, creative, and flexible. And her affable nature made the work all the more enjoyable. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“My leadership team and I learned so much from working with Stevenson Wallace! Andi developed a wonderful protocol for facilitating activities and conversation around building a positive, purposeful culture in the workplace. We were pushed to imagine and re-imagine how things could be in our community in such a skilled, respectful, positive manner. I look forward to more work with Stevenson Wallace.”

“From a small germ of an idea, Andi created a 1-1/2 day conference focused on CFO relationships with boards, CEOs, and non-financial colleagues. She quickly understood our very fundamental objective, was thorough in her deliberations, and the results far exceeded our expectations. This approach to our annual conference was untested and totally different for us. The overwhelming response of the participants was positive and reflected a strong appreciation for  the product Andi delivered. We have asked her to lead our next annual conference and it is without hesitation that I look forward to working with her again.”
Tom Berger, CFO, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts (Miami)

“Stevenson Wallace, LLC assisted Stanly County with its 2018 strategic planning workshop with the Board of Commissioners.  Stevenson Wallace does a very good job of developing clear ground rules for discussion and debate, keeping the flow of the agenda topics on task and ensuring all voices in the room are heard.  Stanly County was pleased with the outcome of the workshop, and Stevenson Wallace played a role in helping to support this successful outcome.”
