"Having Lorri as a mentor has been a tremendous opportunity as I began my journey into economic development. Her knowledge, experience and life lessons helped to make the material relatable and easier to understand. I wasn't afraid to ask questions or get clarification, and she always answered any question I had. When the training period ended, I felt more knowledgeable knowing what Economic Development was. I am looking forward to the end of Covid when I can put some of these lessons to good use in group settings. I feel supported and excited for future opportunities and I am grateful to have Lorri Matthewson as a mentor."

"The Municipality of Two Borders has utilized a few of Lorri Matthewson's services working under her company Matthewson & Co. The Municipality of Two Borders had Matthewson & Co. assist with Strategic Planning and a grant application for Asset Management, and a training webinar on Grant Writing.

Matthewson & Co. has demonstrated knowledge and expertise in all of our sessions and training that the Municipality has utilized.

I want to take the time to thank Matthewson & Co. for their expertise and would not hesitate to recommend them for any of the many services and training that they have available.

You will not be disappointed." ~ Grace Carr, Municipality of Two Borders

"I highly recommend Lorri Matthewson of Matthewson & Co. and the services that she provides. Lorri worked with me and my Council to develop a long-term Strategic Plan for the Village of Glen Ewen. She met with us, evaluated our needs, worked out a plan, and immediately got to work. When finished, she presented us with a plan that we have been able to utilize.

I turned to Lorri when the ICIP grant became available. I was concerned with the information that the grant needed. In the past, I found the grant application difficult and time-consuming. I met with Lorri, and we worked together. She completed the application and other required documentation in a timely and professional manner and kept us posted throughout. She made this process quick and stress-free. Our project has received approval through ICIP funding.

Lorri excels in all aspects of Strategic Project Development, as well as the grant process itself. She has a talent for keeping her clients focused on realistic goals. She is a team leader and pays attention to the big picture and the small details. I highly recommend her without reservation." ~ Myrna-Jean Babbings, CAO, Village of Glen Ewen

"It was great to attend a webinar geared for small towns. I found this very beneficial and will definitely attend other webinars offered. ~ Lorraine Willier, Town of McLennan [10 Essential Policies for Municipal Administrators webinar]

"Lorri worked with our team to help us create a new supported employment service model. She led us in training and development through everything from philosophy to procedure. All the members of our team found ourselves excited, inspired, and always looking forward to the next training session. During our training sessions, we felt free to ask any questions, we had very candid and thought-provoking discussions, and we gained insight and confidence in moving forward with our service delivery. Lorri started out as our trainer and consultant but very quickly became a mentor whom we trust, respect, and recommend wholeheartedly. Thank you Lorri and Anna for all your support!" ~ Candice Francis, Manager, Employment Services, Challenge Disability Resource Group, Yukon
