strategic and long-range planning

We work closely with nonprofit Boards and leaders to help them lead with purpose and intent. Empowering nonprofit leadership is essential to building effective and impactful organizations. Our goal is to equip Boards with the tools and strategies they need to set a clear strategic direction, make effective decisions, and create a positive impact on the professions, members, and communities they have been entrusted to serve.

  • Strategic and Long-Range Planning - Our services in strategic planning facilitation aim to guide your organization in developing a thorough and actionable roadmap for success. Throughout the entire process, encompassing assessments, facilitation, and final reporting, we shoulder the responsibilities of strategic planning, alleviating the burden on your end. We also offer assistance in crafting an implementation plan, ensuring a well-directed start towards achieving your objectives and creating an action plan.

“Brenda’s mastery in keeping the group on track and moving along in the right direction was key to the success of our 6-hour strategic retreat. Busy orthopaedic surgeons, who are often overachievers in their field, like to get right to it, without any preliminaries. They are, however, also prone to getting to deep into the weeds. Brenda’s command of the situation, her instant rapport with the group, and more importantly – her knowledge and expertise – kept us focused and efficient. We have had many retreats before, some moderated by some “big names” in non-profit management, and the one with Brenda was the best one!”

The Knee Society 


"One of Brenda's greatest strengths lies in her ability to facilitate collaboration and foster open communication among our team. Through engaging workshops and insightful discussions, she created a positive and inclusive environment that encouraged the free exchange of ideas. This collaborative spirit not only strengthened our team dynamics but also resulted in a strategic plan that reflects the collective wisdom of our Chamber."

"As we look forward to the future, we are filled with excitement and confidence, thanks to Brenda's guidance. The strategic plan she helped us develop is not just a document on paper; it is a roadmap that will lead our Chamber and its members toward new heights of success. Brenda's commitment to our organization's growth and her unwavering support have made her an invaluable partner in our journey."
