What People Are Saying

I have worked with Paula in many capacities over the past 7 years. It is difficult to quantify her experience and unique ability to plan strategically and execute on time and with results. She has an ability to write a plan, build the team to execute it, stay on track and deliver results. She is a tough task master, and can keep a project on schedule. As a coach and mentor to others, she puts the time in to make sure others are successful. I have enjoyed working with her on several projects and every time she has delivered above and beyond my expectations and brings experience and ideas that I never would have considered.

As the founding executive director of the New Hampshire Progress Alliance, Paula’s deep and strategic knowledge of the political landscape and her ability to set clear priorities in a rapidly evolving start-up environment has served us well. Paula sets aspirational goals and brings commitment, energy, and focus to her work.

We had a great time with Anchor Strategies. We had a nebulous concept and were able to work with Paula to develop a strategy and tactical work plan. They did a fabulous job executing on the plan and delivering success. Paula was able to navigate a complicated environment, work with a variety of stakeholders, coach and develop very different people, and adapt the plan throughout our project.
