An experienced, talented and dedicated team that will take your organization's work to the next level
When it comes down to it, in a changing world, it's all about maximizing performance. You've got to know the audience you're working to reach, deepening in your understanding of changing cultural and intergenerational dynamics. Your human resources--happy and highly motivated employees and volunteers--are the key, and it's essential to find ways to fully leverage the strengths that come with a diverse workforce. It's about communicating clearly and effectively, using new communications tools alongside more traditional ones, while grounding your fundraising and planning efforts in the foundation of a solid strategic plan.
We are four individuals with many decades of practical and effective experience in building organizations, marketing and communications, and making the most of human potential. We've come together because it means offering a more comprehensive menu of services, and the insights inherent to effective and focused collaboration, all to the benefit of you, our valued customer.
Collectively, we've worked as top administrators and directors, as well as leading numerous boards and commissions, in both the for-profit and non-profit worlds, and in both the public and private sectors. This work has occurred close to home, across the country, and around the world. We offer a wealth of experience, coupled with an adaptability and understanding of new ways of strategizing and communicating, that can take your work to the next level.
