Finding the best path forward is not easy.

Our society no longer has the luxury of time or reserves for do-overs, we need collaborative leadership that guides with an “all hands on deck” approach where all resources are valued and optimized to tackle the impacts of climate change, unprecedented market disruptors and social injustices being experienced by communities of all types.

Getting it right the first time around is not easy. Plans and programs intended to benefit society and regenerate natural systems are complex with multiple and sometime competing objectives to be achieved from limited resources. There are many pitfalls that may derail or reduce project outcomes even further than the ever-present limitations of tight budgets and human behavior.  Balancing all concerns within the situational realities of deadlines, policy barriers and capacity shortages often leads project teams down the path of least resistance leaving behind missed opportunities and voices unheard. The result is an outcome that has less impact, few supporters and unrealized outcomes.

ReMAKE works with you to shape positive outcomes.

Flora, ReMAKE’s founder, is a respected leader well-known for asking the tough questions, giving voice to those unheard, and her willingness to take a harder path to achieve better results.
