Extended Testimonial

Chip’s job title as Chief Catalyst is well deserved. My dictionary lists the following in its definition of a catalyst:

- a person or thing that precipitates an event or change - a person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy causes others to be more friendly, enthusiastic, or energetic

Chip facilitated a group of volunteer professionals (from various backgrounds and areas of expertise) working together on behalf of the Kingsway Community Care Center—a medical and dental clinic for the uninsured. The project involved the development of a business case for support to be presented to the two area hospitals. Chip’s guiding hand was instrumental in the success in bringing the three parties together and gaining needed financial support for KCCC. This collaboration has continued and the cooperation grown deeper (well beyond financial support) many months after Chip’s initial leadership—a true measure of the change brought about by the Chief Catalyst. KCCC has benefited greatly from Chip’s “talk, enthusiasm, and energy.”
