What our Clients Say

We just completed strategic planning with Michela’s guidance. It is the fourth organization I have been associated with that worked with her. Volunteer and staff leadership are always impressed with Michela’s skills. She is masterful and the added value of her MMP Associates team was very clear in this process.
— Nathan Monell, Executive Director, National PTA
MMP Associates has been the impetus for transformational change on our board. They initially assisted us with strategic planning, which blossomed into ongoing board development and training that has ignited our board to become a more engaged and effective governing body.
— Jaime D.H. Dunham, Paul Public Charter School
I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Perrone’s skill as a facilitator in our strategic planning process. She is organized and engaging, keeps the conversation on track and MMP Associates delivered an excellent final product.
— Patrice Pascual, Executive Director, Children's Dental Health Project
