Love at first site

We loved our experience with Sarah! She was engaging from the start. She helped us rethink and reshape our entire communications program — from our website to our brand to our communications calendar — and took tasks that are usually dull and boring and infused new life into them. For example, with Sarah’s guidance, we were able to re-write our mission statement in one hour! As a result of this work, we’re attracting more people and more money to our cause.

From Floundering to Flying High

When we called Sarah for help, our board was so ineffective that they couldn’t get through a meeting without wandering from the agenda. As a new Executive Director, I knew something was wrong, but didn’t know how to fix it. After working with Sarah for 18 months, our board was running like a well-oiled machine and we’d completed our first strategic plan! As a result, our program took off -- so much so that we received one of 15 national youth arts awards presented by Michelle Obama! Had we not addressed our board issues, our organization would never have experienced this kind of growth.

Strategies for Growth

It’s been a great opportunity for the agency to reflect on strategies for growth, to discover new funders, and to bring new funding online so we can sustain our important work with ex-offenders in Worcester. Sarah is our go-to consultant — she’s responsive, effective and really fun to work with.

From deficit to surplus in under one year!

After working with Sarah for only 9 months, our agency was, after 5 years, finally out of deficit mode -- in fact, we had a $113,000 surplus! That was just the beginning. Sarah helped us with strategic planning, board development, communications, and a number of fundraising initiatives. Sarah's not just a consultant, she's a valued partner who's invested in our success. She openly shares all the knowledge and experience she has gained over her career to help us get stronger. It's been a privilege to work with her and we’ve really benefitted from our long and fruitful relationship!
