"Roger led our recent Board Retreat, which in effect, he made a graduate-level course in what it means to be a Board member in an independent school. His careful questioning before the retreat to determine my Board’s particular needs led to an extraordinarily productive day. He shared his experience and expertise in governance issues with warmth, wit and a keen intellect. Every Board member said it was single best retreat they had shared as a group. We plan to make sessions with Roger an annual event. "
