Client Feedback


“Vin recently instructed CNM Connect's Nonprofit Marketing Certificate for the seventh time! He is always refreshing and tailoring the curriculum to his audience, attentive to the needs of our clients and gives personalized attention to each participant. Vin is a wealth of knowledge; he understands the unique challenges and opportunities nonprofits have in marketing and keeps a focus on key nonprofit target audiences: donors, volunteers and clients. CNM Connect is thrilled to partner with Vin to bring high-quality education opportunities to North Texas nonprofits!”

“Vin's Marketing Certificate course has been incredibly helpful, both for my organization and my professional growth. Creating a marketing plan has helped us formulate answers to questions we didn’t even know we needed to ask. Thanks to Vin’s expertise, I feel prepared to plan and execute my organization’s communications more effectively than ever before.”

“Strategic4sight guided us through all stages of the strategic planning process from interviews with key stakeholders to competitive research and proposed potential future alternative scenarios. Vin then led us through a very strategic, interactive planning retreat to identify our vision and high level goals, which led to measurable objectives. We are delighted with the results that lay out an exciting future. I highly recommend Strategic4sight.”

"We are extremely pleased with our Strategic Planning results, the variety and depth of deliverables, and particularly how engaged and passionate their staff became in our project. Their diligent research, comparative analyses, and many dedicated hours was exceptional. Vin also produced a full Marketing Plan, which provides us with a strategic way to market and achieve our plans. I highly recommend the work of Strategic4sight.”

Your external and internal assessments were critical to identifying our future direction and to our Strategic Plan development. Our Retreat was very well received by our board and staff and resulted in unanimous approval of a scenario for growth over three years. The Marketing Plan was an excellent benefit, since we can immediately implement strategies to increase agency visibility.

“I recommend the Strategic Planning and Marketing process by Vin Hoey and Bobbi Bilnoski. We feel we have a strategic plan road map for where we want to go and the business strategies, as well as the implementation and marketing tools that will lead us to reach our destination. We could not have accomplished this on our own – your objectivity, experience and expertise, as well as your commitment to helping us reach our goals made the difference for us.”

Amy Spawn, Executive Director, The Warren Center


"We are so grateful for your comprehensive Brand Strategy and Marketing Audit.

His level of professionalism, leadership and dedication helped us achieve our goals."
