Avalanche leads training workshops, facilitates board retreats, and speaks at national conferences on topics such as:

  • Industry trends
  • Talent alignment
  • Strategic planning
  • Marketing and business development
  • Sales and presentation skills

Our team is personable, approachable, and ready to lead community conversations that foster leadership, engagement, and collaboration across a wide variety of interests. We know how to engage and energize audiences.

We are very happy with the results of our strategic planning sessions with Avalanche. We enjoyed the first session so much that we invited Amy back within six months for a second session. Avalanche brings a fresh, modern approach to economic development.
