Onward and Upward for 2012!

I am excited to announce the formation of Onward Consulting, a refreshing new firm created by three leading executive directors: Maureen Holla, Marcy Mistrett and Karin Walser.

Onward offers an innovative combination of strategy, tactical planning and execution.
We offer exceptional work at a reasonable cost—work that will help you achieve your mission more effectively than ever before.

As nonprofit leaders, we repeatedly paid top-dollar for mediocre consulting services.
We asked ourselves—did it really have to cost that much? Did organizations devoted to improving our world really need to pay exorbitant rates for average work? Onward is different. We are devoted to helping you succeed, and—at the end of the day—we want every, single client to say, “With Onward, we got MUCH more than we paid for.”

We help organizations raise more funds, become more effective, change more lives.
We will stand by you as you manage a crisis or undergo a transition. We will help you communicate your message more effectively, recruit more volunteers and coach you through challenges. And, if the time has come for either you or your organization to pass the reins to someone else, we will help make the transition as seamless as possible.

Leading a nonprofit can be overwhelming at times. We have been in your shoes; we have begged for money, managed difficult staff, and planned programs. We will roll up our sleeves to help you solve the problem, create the plan, hire the staff and ensure the work gets done.

Onward gives you another experienced executive director by your side, for as long or as short as you need it.

Plus, we’re fun.
