Why Hire a Consultant?

  • Sometimes you need to hire a professional who has the practical experience, library of knowledge, and functional expertise you may not have in your organization.
  • Sometimes it is time to invest in the health of your organization, just as you take time to invest in your personal health or the maintenance of your home.
  • Sometimes you are too busy with fundraising, day-to-day operations, and carrying out the organization’s mission to work on capacity building and governance projects.
  • Sometimes you need an objective point of view, an outside voice, to facilitate a discussion or come up with a creative solution or unbiased decision.
  • Sometimes you are in the midst of a crisis and you need a sounding board or management assistance.

A management consultant can help you and your organization solve a specific problem or help you get to the next phase in your organization’s life. Consultants can help you analyze your particular situation, set realistic goals, devise and then implement creative solutions and new programs.

C&D’s knowledge, skills, and gentle approach made the process of starting and growing our board not only doable, but also fun. As a result of working with C&D, we created a 10-member board, organized a successful fundraising event, developed a promotional packet, and created a full time executive director position. C&D helped us gain confidence working with our board of directors and running our organization in general.
