What people are saying about Visjonær Consulting and Tim Jacobson“Tim Jacobson is a proven leader in land conservation with an exceptionally broad range of skills, from fundraising to land transactions to organizational management. He not only deftly advanced Mississippi Valley Conservancy's mission, but he also helped the land trust community as a whole grow and mature while on the board of Gathering Waters and as an integral partner in the Blufflands Alliance.”
-Kris Larson, Executive Director of Minnesota Land Trust
“Tim Jacobson has the hard won and irreplaceable experience of someone who has led an organization through change. His experience and his willingness to apply it with great passion have made him a leader in Wisconsin's land trust community.”
“Tim Jacobson possesses incredible energy, persistence, vision, and a 'get 'r done' attitude. He has done great work for the Mississippi Valley Conservancy and the Blufflands Alliance.”
“Tim Jacobson served as Executive Director of Mississippi Valley Conservancy for over seven years. MVC had many great accomplishments under his leadership. Tim successfully led MVC through the national land trust accreditation process. MVC’s organizational structure and stability also was greatly improved under Tim’s leadership. Tim also served on several Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Committees during his tenure.
Tim has exceptional skills in communication. He writes and speaks very well, is very comfortable in front of a camera and microphone, and developed great relations with local media in La Crosse and neighboring areas. It is my strong impression that MVC had better publicity in regional media than any other local non-profit organization while Tim was Executive Director, due primarily to Tim’s efforts and talent.
He evokes the big picture ideals of land protection and a land ethic, and at the same time has an exceptional grasp on the details involved in land protection and successfully operating a non-profit organization.”
