Ms. Jakopic epitomizes excellence as a consultant and analytic strategist. She always is well-informed and well-prepared for high-pressure challenges. She provided high-quality, forward looking assistance to my senior executive team in designing and implementing major initiatives.

Her skills as a plenary session keynote speaker, trainer with large and small groups and as a workshop leader for day-long/multi-day intensive sessions are first rate. She understands and is sensitive to the needs of the groups she works with. She consistently inspires her audiences and she has a kind, gentle sense of humor. The CAP nationwide membership of nearly 1,000 nonprofit, municipal, and statewide anti-poverty repeatedly requested Julie as a trainer and speaker.
