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

“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

“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, AmeriCares

“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, Riverkeeper, Inc.

“Thank you for your leadership, guidance, and hard work. You brought a different approach to our work in this space, which we found to be very insightful and productive.”

Jake Farbman, Executive Director, New Jersey Center for Student Success

“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’s work helping us refine our logic model for one of our funding initiatives was incredibly helpful. I now have a much better understanding of the project’s flow, and can see the value of the logic model as a tool.”

Lillian Rhodes, Director of Development, Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut

“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

“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

Outcome Measurement & Evaluation Clients:

“Over the course of a few months, we worked with IQ to develop a framework and plan for results-based outcomes in our relatively young organization. It was a very helpful and important process for me, our new (at the time) Assistant Director, and our entire board. We’ve since been using the language from our framework in marketing and communications, which helped change the way we were presenting our organization to the public and conveying impact. It also helped us get our heads around the results we wanted to achieve, so we could adjust our tracking. Along with growing our programs, I then began to utilize the knowledge and metrics in our next round of grant applications, which so far has led to a 50% increase in one grant and a 150% increase in another. Thank you for being part of our great strides over the past year! ”

Wendy Bury, Executive Director, Southeastern CT Cultural Coalition

“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, Symphony Space

“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 is an exceptional consultant and was a pleasure to work with. Her capacity as a facilitator to listen to a diversity of stakeholders and accurately pull out the core elements of the conversation from which to work was amazing to watch. She helped to keep us on task while also allowing for the organic moments of exploration that tend to happen with a diverse group of people in conversation. She helped clarify our goals and create manageable steps which made it possible to move forward productively. If I ever have the opportunity to work with her again, I would.”

Rachel Watts, Director of Programs, ArtsConnection

“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)

“We really appreciate all your guidance and facilitation these last few months.  Thank you especially for reminding us to start and end with the outcomes, that tools come second!”

Jessie Tartanian, Evaluation Manager, Edible Schoolyard NYC

We truly loved having you work with us on the Outcomes Project and know that the tools you have given us will make a huge difference in documenting our work and its impact. Our time together also contributed to team building and getting every member of our staff to understand the value of the work we do collectively. Thank you for making this project a success.”  

Robina Niaz, Founder & Executive Director, Turning Point for Women & Families

“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.”

Fai Walker, Program Director, Outward Bound: New York City Center

“Thanks to Laurel’s work, we have been able to use our outcomes data for a number of purposes, including program development, staff training, fundraising and marketing.”

Jerry Tipton, President, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta

“The logic models and data collection instruments developed by Laurel are solid and sophisticated, yet manageable at the same time.  They serve as an excellent model for community organizations.”

Martha Taylor Greenway, Vice President, United Way of Metro Atlanta

“Laurel took hard to measure/observe program goals and created a state-of-the-art outcome measurement tool that reflects our program impact on the behavioral changes of our campers.”

Mike Miller, Director, Camp Kiwanis
