Karrikins Group was engaged to help the CEOs and Board chairs of LCUC, an association of the largest 16 credit unions in Canada, create better alignment and decision making across the group. As an association of friendly, competing organizations, LCUC members were struggling to make collective decisions and drive the industry for the betterment of each organization and the communities we serve. Julie Williamson and the Karrikins Group team helped us break through and understand how we could identify issues, recognize where individuals stood, and work through barriers to commitment. The engagement fundamentally changed how we approach decision making as a group. The decision framework that Karrikins Group provided will serve as the foundation for how we collaborate and build agreements in the future as well as will be highly leveraged within each of our individual organizations. Karrikins Group has greatly enhanced our executive leadership and strategic decision making.

Not only do they provide a fresh view on how to approach the ever changing market, they do it in such a way as to build buy in and excitement among our team. They are thorough, optimistic and effective. In my mind one of the best values in a consulting engagement we have had.”

"They are a group of people that help you think forward. They encourage change and question current methods and framework of addressing the market. They help you think about your plans from a very different perspective because they bring knowledge of multiple industries to help solve problems creatively."

“Karrikins Group is the quintessential partner. They are simultaneously rigorous and creative, bringing the highest degree of professionalism to the project.
