The culture of a workplace - an organization's values, norms and practices have a huge impact on its ultimate success.
If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.
A strong, diverse, supportive board can be the deciding factor in the success of any business.
Organization, preparation and attention to detail are keys to planning and executing an exceptional meeting or event

At Penterman Consulting

we believe in LISTENING to better understanding your issues and goals. Together, we will find and implement the right solution to assist your business, project, meeting or event in achieving its maximum potential.

Our extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector makes us notably passionate about bringing disciplined governance, planning and organizational structure to not for profits, as well as small business companies.


Understanding where you want to go is the first step to developing a plan today, to achieve that vision.

Penterman will work with your organization to identify future goals and create a comprehensive, actionable plan to implement “in the present”, putting your company on the path to achieving your ultimate vision for the future.

The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined efforts of each individual working together to achieve a mutual goal. At Penterman, we strive to understand the underlying dynamics contained within every group of individuals, in order to meld each entity into a cohesive, functional team focused on collective success.

Board members are the advisors who steer the organization towards a sustainable future. In order to do so, a board must be accountable, efficient, transparent, responsive, inclusive and participatory. Penterman will assist you in identifying and developing the combination of expertise with processes and procedures to ensure healthy board governance.

Proper event management planning is vital for any successful meeting or event. Things don’t just happen. People MAKE them happen. We look after all the elements of an event from concept to completion. The details of venue, staging, lighting, sound, dressing, bar, catering, staffing and execution are key components. The organization and coordination of these key elements can differentiate an amazing, impactful event from an ineffective, dreary meeting or event.
