"Fiona did an outstanding job managing the details of YPO Santa Barbara’s retreat to Moab. It was a challenge to keep everything running smoothly over our four day trip, for our CEO group, and Fiona was able to anticipate problems and prevent them from happening as well as accommodate adjustments to our plans on the fly."
