  • Comprehensive strategic planning: full service planning may include: process design, facilitation, organizational assessments, SWOT analysis, operations, organizational models, cost/benefit analysis, financial models, writing plans.
  • Emergent strategy: organizations in early stages  or facing uncertainty may need short-term plans that combine deliberate goals with flexibility to nurture emergent strategies arising from learning and changing market conditions.
  • Strategy lite:  for limited budgets and short time-frames, a compressed process; strategy tune-ups.


  • Business planning: for start-ups and social enterprises. Full plans including products/services, marketing, pro-forma’s, social ROI, risk analysis, investor/funder pitch.
  • Finance: budgeting, financial management systems, revenue models, cost/benefit analysis, social ROI, investment policies, reporting.

I am delighted with our decision to hire Dan for strategic planning and organizational development. He has a strong knowledge base, educated us on organizational growth issues, facilitated fruitful discussions, and helped us organize a roadmap for how to proceed. I really appreciated his ability to take our jumbled group conversations and distill them into clear action items.

We were so impressed by our initial consultations that we chose to hire him again to help us develop investment guidelines and structure our budget. He did a brilliant job keeping us on task and formulating a strong working budget as well as giving us the tools to continue on our own. Dan delivered above our expectations, was proactive about moving the process forward, and was personable and easy to work with. We will absolutely hire Dan in the future if we find ourselves in need of his guidance, and we highly recommend him.

interim executive

Your organization may need an interim executive if: you’re experiencing significant disruption and change; when it is unclear what positions will be needed and/or what skills will be needed for a particular position; when leadership is needed urgently and there is reason to believe that a high-quality search will take time; or when someone is available who can transition into the position quickly but isn’t available on a long-term basis. 

Dan is a highly experienced executive who can fill a variety of roles including Executive Director and Development Director.


  • Executives: coaching and conversation on leadership, management, personal growth, organizational development, developing and communicating your vision, stakeholder engagement, change management, working with boards.
  • Emerging leaders: managing up/managing down, communication and interpersonal skills, career development, personal and professional growth.
