A special note and key learning points from our long-time client, Karen Govern, Executive Director at STARability Foundation:
Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity to attend the NTEN conference! The learning opportunities were outstanding and each session was useful, interesting and practical. I hope you enjoy just a few of my notes and key learning points below:
I really cannot say enough about my experience at the NTEN conference. The presenters provided access to valuable resources and tools. Although it was a large conference, there was a lot of small “caring” details, such as the helpful attendee packets and wonderful meals and receptions. The app and website were also very helpful for daily planning. And, I truly enjoyed interacting with like-minded leaders to share information, tips, and experiences. I even connected with someone from an organization in Australia that serves individuals with disabilities. We compared our countries’ service delivery systems and discovered we faced similar issues and challenges.
The STARability Foundation’s mission is to, “transform the lives of individuals with disabilities through social, vocational and educational connections to the community, while strengthening awareness and respect for individual abilities.” There is no better person to lead these efforts than our long-time client and friend, Karen Govern. She is a truly kind and caring human who leads with thoughtfulness, strategy and focus. We cannot wait to see her continued success and achievements at STARability!
We think of our client relationships as true partnerships. Trust, kindness, patience, and respect are forefront of our service delivery and client communications. That’s why our clients, more often than not, also become our friends. Read more about what makes us tick and our five pillars of service.
