I would love to work with you, I only ask that you read these FAQs first to see if we might be a good fit.
WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?
I work primarily with groups and teams. I am generally hired by incubators, institutions, organizations interested in deepening learning and practice, or teams launching creative ventures. I am often engaged by someone with a vested interest, either internal or external to the entity. Often those I work with are not yet in a position to hire me and so it is a financial backer, board member, foundation, service organization or parent company that underwrites my services.
HOW DO YOU WORK?
My work is customized for the client.
When working with new ventures, I help to strategize, plan, facilitate learning, and build structures for sustainability. I will not do the work for you, but I can help you gain clarity about what you do, how you do it, who you do it for, and get you ready to pitch it to others. From concept to business structure, collaborative practice to team-building, and story-crafting to public speaking, I can walk with you from 'cocktail napkin to launch.'
When I work with institutions and organizations, I listen first. I then develop processes, courses, and gatherings that suite their needs.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?
- Strategy for Creative ventures: Strategic road-mapping, process and planing for teams interested in building thoughtful, sustainable companies, projects and ventures. I can assist you on discrete aspects of your undertaking, or I can advise you along your journey, from the initial idea to your launch.
- Facilitated gatherings: These are customized half-day, full-day, or multi-day team retreats, thinking groups, learning communities or symposia geared toward the needs and desired impact and outcomes of the client. Often these entail some sort of 'big idea' generation or implementation, exercises focused on deepening understanding and communication, group learning and brain storming, and the development of action plans and processes.
- Intensives in Entrepreneurial Approaches: Trainings for creative teams, administrators, staff, professors, or students. These may be paired with an online course offering or as stand-alone, 1-3 day-long trainings. I am only invested in offering programs that go deep and have impact.
CAN I HIRE YOU TO DESIGN A COURSE SPECIFICALLY FOR MY INSTITUTION, COMPANY, OR INCUBATOR?
Yes, let's talk!
DO YOU EVER WORK WITH INDIVIDUALS?
If you are an artist, consultant, or sole proprietor entrepreneur, my suggestion is to first take a one of my online courses. This will save you money and prepare you well to make the most of our time.
I also offer 'Office Hours' twice a month, pro bono, for creatives. These 25 minute phone sessions are available to those who have a very specific question. This is a one-time offer, once we have had an office hour, if you wish to do more work, I will suggest a course, a learning group, or we may find a way to work together.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
All of my work is customized to the client, therefore, I'm happy to talk about cost once I learn a bit more about your needs. I have both not-for-profit, small business / start-up, and corporate rates that are calculated in hourly, half-day and full-day increments. For larger projects, I often work on a monthly retainer or per-project fee.
