Testimonials

"May Lui was a great resource and support for our Community Council and staff.  In 2019 and 2020 she provided a series of workshops and trainings to our Board. She also guided us through HR and Finance Policy writing. May inspired confidence in our team and sparked some great conversations. 
 
We are grateful for her clear and accessible approach to understanding legal and fiscal compliance matters, and for making writing and reviewing policy less scary!"
