Mr. Bob McCulloch, FCMC

CYOR Consulting Group / Strategic Retreats


Strategic Retreats specializes in the facilitation of strategic planning. Over the past 30 years, we have successfully guided more than 200 clients through the strategic planning process, facilitated over 500 workshops and retreats, and conducted more than 1200 key informant interviews. Our client list includes associations, not-for-profit organizations, charitable organizations, small and mid-sized owner-managed businesses, professional service firms, major corporations and public sector departments and agencies.

We focus our extensive experience in strategic thinking/planning and facilitation on increasing business value and overcoming barriers to growth and profitability. A key outcome of our process, the 90-day Strategic Action Agenda, sets priorities and accountabilities, ensuring that implementation begins once the plan is agreed.

My partner Chris Ward and I are passionate about bringing leaders together to share ideas and reach consensus on key issues. My background – as an educator, line manager, consultant with an international management consulting firm, co-founder of a successful change management firm, and author – has prepared me to guide clients through a rigorous planning process, while providing perspectives and advice based on deep business experience.
