“Tom came into a complex community-based project that had fallen behind schedule. He was able to work effectively with a diverse group of people and got us back on track in just a few months. He helped us craft a plan, made sure we were all on board with it, and then helped us keep to it. The program we planned has grown steadily and is entering its third successful year.”

Roseanne Flouty, New York University

“Julia helped us design useful evaluations with more than just numbers. She helped us get a clear idea of how our programs worked and how we can continue to make them better.”

Sanjay Sarma, Vice President for Open Learning, MIT

“Tom helped us meld five independent offices (and cultures) into the new Office of Digital Learning by masterfully facilitating the creation of our first Strategic Plan. I continue to meet with him regularly for a fresh, independent perspective. I find his counsel insightful and valuable. I recommend working with Tom.”

David Howse, Emerson College

Julia not only designed and carried out practical evaluations of our programs, but also taught us how we can do it ourselves, so we can continue to learn about and expand our programs independently.”

“Tom & Julia bring a wealth of experience and intelligence to their work. They have a unique combination of skills, flexibility, creativity and sensitivity to the challenges of working with coalitions, nonprofits and government agencies. Without both of their skills, BOSTONavigator would never be where it is today.”
