Our Consulting Approach
Sometimes you just need a fresh look at things.
We’re prospect development experts, and we’re great at taking an objective look at staffing, resources, systems, org charts, and more. We learn what you will need to be successful, and we work with you to tune everything up and make sure you have the right resourcing in place to be ready for the campaign, project, or challenge ahead.
We bring two senior consultants to every research department audit we do. We (and our clients) find that gives us more of a complete view and double the insight to help you succeed.
If you feel that your prospect research efforts aren’t quite getting you where you need to be, you should probably consider training.
Training and experience are key to whether your prospect research program will vault your fundraising staff forward or provide an invisible drag on their success.
Prospect research that is strategic and useful is far more than someone just using search engines to look up information on companies, foundations and individuals. That’s not to say that a strong foundation in effective web searching isn’t important – it is. But search engines are a very small part of the valuable resources that are available, and you need to know what’s available and how to use them skillfully.
Our trainers work one-on-one with you or your team members, either on-site or via video conferencing. We can provide 90-minute to full-day training, or we can point you to a recorded seminar on the exact topic you need, viewable at your convenience.
