"Stephen worked with us in a situation with many moving parts and different institutional ideologies and was able to not only navigate his way through this, but develop a consensus among partners on a clear and practical way to move forward that met all partners' needs. Stephen's work in Madagascar will have long lasting benefits for the Makira Carbon Project."

"Фонд Сорос-Казахстан работает со Стивеном уже более 5 лет, и мы очень ценим наше сотрудничество. Стивен оказал нам неоценимую помощь в процессе разработки двух стратегий Фонда (на 2014-2016 и 2017-2019 годы), что во многом определило их успешную защиту. В настоящее время мы работаем над внедрением принципиально новых для нашего Фонда механизмов контроля, которые позволят Фонду осуществлять мониторинг реализации стратегии и корректировать курс, в случае необходимости. Я очень благодарен Стивену за вдумчивый и индивидуальный подход к решению каждой задачи, а также за вдохновение на инновации".

"Stephen assisted ARTICLE 19 to build the process and framework for our new six year strategy, the Expression Agenda. In doing so, Stephen helped develop a tailor-made strategy, offering a measurable yet flexible way for ARTICLE 19 to deliver on its human rights goals. Stephen was innovative and adaptive, always readily available, and quick to master ARTICLE 19's areas of expertise".

"Pensar o desenvolvimento e sustentabilidade de organizações da sociedade civil é tão estratégico quanto nossas ações de pesquisa e ativismo pela proteção de direitos fundamentais. Mas são poucas, ou quase tabus, as oportunidades de conversa e troca sobre os enormes desafios de se pensar dinâmicas de trabalho e modelos econômicos coerentes com os valores que defendemos. A Coding Rights teve imensa ajuda ao começar a tratar destas questões com um empurrãozinho estruturado da Skillfull means, que entende bem como soluções devem ser customizadas de acordo com anseios de cada grupo e possibilidades burocráticas dos contextos locais. Agora, temos adiante um divertido caminho a ser percorrido com soluções criativas e conscientes, que podem/e devem ser alimentadas pelas experiências de outras organizações".

"Stephen helped us see what we needed to do and the hard decisions we had to make. He made us answer the challenging questions and do so collectively. He found all the choke points in the road and ensured we navigated them. Most importantly, together we developed the framing we most urgently needed. As a result of working with Stephen, we have twice made it through significant inflection points for PI, and twice we've come through better prepared for the future".

"Stephen has twice provided invaluable help as we revised our strategy during challenging times. Our strong Board brings a wide range of experience and views to such discussions. And while we treasure consensus, contentious disagreements could easily arise. Steve helped us flesh out the options, think them through, and arrive at solid conclusions agreed to by everyone in the room. One might say we drew on his skillful means...."
