"Thank you for making the Yakima, WA events so productive. I was very pleased with the attendance and attention – you did a terrific job of presenting complex information. 

-Kris Tucker, Executive Director, Washington State Arts Commission


“Christy Farnbauch is an avid reader, learner, and teacher. She is able to analyze information and use it in a presentation that captivates her audiences and helps them better understand how to deliver their message, engage their constituents, and find solutions. Her work is grounded in best practice and is results oriented!”  

       - Donna Collins, Executive Director, Ohio Alliance for Arts Education


"Christy was instrumental in facilitating our strategic planning process at Dublin Arts Council. She worked calmly and efficiently under a tight deadline, and in a tense political environment. Not only did she deliver a solid plan, blending theory with powerful practical knowledge, she changed the way our organization views itself in enlightening new ways. Christy was professional and nurturing in her approach. Without her expertise and support, I believe Dublin Arts Council would have become obsolete in a number of years. I highly recommend her for any organization that truly wants strategic change to transform their organization."

       - Dr. David Guion, Executive Director, Dublin Arts Council


"I've had the pleasure of knowing Christy for several years. We have co-facilitated small group learning sessions.  Christy has the ability to establish instant rapport with her audience. She's able to do this so easily because of her warm personality, how thoroughly she knows her material and the conviction with which she speaks. It's guaranteed that you'll enjoy working with Christy.”
