Henry Motta, Chief Operationg Office - Jasper Place Wellness Center
Henry Motta has 10+ years of experience working to develop solutions for social and economic challenges in our community. Henry recognizes anything worth doing requires a team and systems approach to create a lasting impact for those involved. His educational background includes military studies, engineering, theology, leadership and management and community economic development.
Henry believes in developing the kind of business strategies organizations need to tap into informal and formal methods of data collection. He knows it is important to understanding where, in its business development cycle, an organization is at. This understanding allows organizations to be agile, flexible, adaptable and to better achieve their goals. Henry Motta will be speaking about the importance of research, and factual data, to the operation of front line agency. He will begin with a short overview of the services provided by the Jasper Place Wellness Center followed by remarks about the importance of gathering information about their own activities in order to be able to grow and diversify their services to the community. They are currently exploring ways to track their effectiveness and better anticipate the need.
