Program Design & Facilitation Clients:
"We could not have asked for a better advisor! With an unprecedented amount of experience and knowledge, Laurel was able to develop our logic model and share with us the necessary tools and resources required to accomplish our goals. Her kindness and patience as well as her desire to see us succeed reignited in us the confidence we need to seek out our mission and purpose."
Michelle Ceran, Advisory Board Member
Health Education Action League for Haiti
"Laurel facilitated a very productive and participatory series of workshops to develop and document our organization’s theory of change. This was a complicated task that required input and vetting from a number of different stakeholders - it could have easily gone off track or been dropped due to competing priorities. With Laurel’s careful guidance, we were able to develop our model. More importantly, we succeeded in implementing a process that gathered input broadly and resulted in a product that we can now to take to our board and external audiences. We really appreciate Laurel’s wealth of experience, her calm demeanor and her insightful questions that pushed us to think outside our comfort zones. She was generous with her time and adapted to our needs throughout the process. We highly recommend her!"
Susan Bergson, Director of Monitoring & Evaluation
"Our success is predicated largely on the work of Laurel Molloy. She organized our efforts, documented our work, created programs for camp, and advised the fledgling charity in its fund-raising and compliance activities. Without Ms. Molloy's tireless and professional efforts, we could not have achieved all we did in such a short time."
Larry Levy, Board Chair
America's Camp Foundation
"We have shared the logic model tool you helped us develop at a recent fund development conference, and on our Intranet, and our councils love it!"
Gabrielle Love, Chief Foundation & Government Relations Executive
Girl Scouts of the USA
“Laurel Molloy has been integral in helping to grow and enhance our camp program for kids with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. She has guided us on every facet of running our camp - from staff training, volunteer management, developing policies, procedures and guidelines, to ensuring that all forms, applications and pertinent information is current and accurate. She leaves no stone unturned and is one of the most thorough and detail oriented people I have ever met!”
Kimberly Frederick, Senior Vice President, Mission
The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America
"We had high expectations and a demanding team, and Laurel worked with us exceptionally well. Laurel is a skilled facilitator, who guided us in a valuable discussion about the connection between our organization's actions and intended outcomes. She facilitated a productive brainstorming process by incorporating insights I had shared prior to our session, and in a short time helped us develop a concrete framework to map out our future work. The senior management team gave Laurel a uniformly positive evaluation."
Katarina Duplessy, VP, COO
Outcome Measurement & Evaluation Clients:
"Our work with Innovations Quantified kick-started a lot of really good thinking and work at Westchester Children’s Association. It came at a perfect flexion point for us, and dovetailed with two simultaneous developments: internally, the staff has begun working on creating logic models for all of our work, and with the Board, we are using the models to communicate about our impact and develop a shared strategic vision. Thanks!"
Cora Greenberg, Executive Director
Westchester Children’s Association
“In working with Laurel Molloy to assess a program I had been deeply involved with for over twenty years, I was able to see and understand programmatic virtues and flaws for the first time. Things that I could talk about in only the most anecdotal way previously, became clear and multifaceted. it was a real revelation.”
Madeline Cohen, Education Director
“Organizational change: it’s easier said than done, particularly when there’s a new face helping to put it into place. But if it’s Laurel Molloy’s face…and intellect, heart and soul…then the odds of it getting done are good. At BRC, she was the linchpin in our successful transition to evidence-based, data-driven management practices. She did so by demonstrating immense respect for the exceptional professional work that our staff do, and by gaining their trust.”
Muzzy Rosenblatt, Executive Director
BRC: Bowery Residents’ Committee
“Laurel stepped in when we had already developed our annual plan and helped us to clarify what we wanted to measure during the year and how. She rapidly assessed the situation and grasped the essence of our work. Her deft facilitation helped us to develop a feasible and productive plan for monitoring the outcomes of our work.”
Susan Wood, Director of Special Projects
International Women's Health Coalition (IWHC)
“Four years later, I am still using what Laurel taught me about setting up an evaluation procedure. She explained the process thoroughly, listened to my input, and then helped me design the process for GOAL. Now I can do it for myself for other programs. She taught me to fish, rather than giving me a fish. As a consultant in this area she is excellent.”
Kaffie McCullough, Founder & Executive Director
Girls Outdoor Adventure for Leadership (GOAL)
“The IQ process is user-friendly. It helps us design well thought-out programs and more importantly identify the outcomes we want to track. Talk about accountability. It cuts out all the fluff in a program and makes everything intentional.”
