I decided early on in my career that I wanted to focus on helping small to medium sized social change initiatives by both businesses and nonprofits be more successful. I
believed then and still do that small to medium sized organization can be more efficient and effective. However, small to medium sized organizations can’t usually pay for
high-end consulting. So I started my company, AVENIR Consulting, to create a form of consulting adapted to the needs of contemporary social change organizations. In this
form of consulting, instead of just leaving you with a set of ideas and a large bill, I actually take a post in your organization, either as a 1099 contractor or as an employee,
allowing us to create an affordable mid to longer term engagement in which I actually lead the implementation of the strategies I bring to you and your teams.
After a free 30-minute consultation, I can send a draft proposal built around the gaps or friction we have identified in your systems. We go back and forth on the
deliverables and timelines as well as the associated costs for those deliverables. We can discuss pricing on the free call, and I can send you past proposals so you can see
what I have done for other organizations.
My core expertise is in quickly locating the gaps in your business / strategy models and providing solutions focused on raising more money for your mission. I have taken
multiple organizations from $0 to $Millions through the application of best of class knowledge to the specific needs of each organization. Not only do I bring the strategies
you lack to your organization, I actually lead your teams in the implementation of those strategies until they are successful.
Yes I did! My parents did missionary work in Northern Mali back in the 70s and 80s. I grew up in that fabled city, where I developed abilities for cross-cultural work that I
have been using across my career. I am what they call at Third Cultured Person (Google that if needed), and have a unique skill set that can be very useful to sorting out
organizational bottlenecks arising from the types of different value assumptions found in both international and local companies of all sorts.
