About Sequence consulting

Leading Nonprofit Consultants

nonprofit consultANTS

Growth advisors to successful associations for over twenty years

Clients tell us we are down-to-earth, collaborative, and we listen. They say we are easy to work with, friendly, and even fun. Expert and likable at the same time, which is high praise. What means the most is that they trust us.

Which is one reason our client relationships last for years and sometimes decades. Our very first client is still our client — twenty-one years later.

our nonprofit consulting promise

What Can You Expect From Us?

We have worked almost exclusively with associations  over the last twenty years, including some of the largest organizations in the world. Each of them had unique growth challenges, and we helped all of them succeed.

Global 500 companies have also sought us out for our membership, recruitment, and retention expertise.

No other firm can bring that kind of experience to a relationship with you.

Our clients tell us that one of the things they value most is our ability to be their thought partner. To understand their challenges and create space for them to think and create.

We personally invest in our clients and their success. Our clients say so themselves.

That  is why some of our relationships go back more than two decades, as we continue to help our clients succeed throughout their careers.

 Every client is different and wants the exact right solution for them. That is what we deliver.

Clients tell us our non-profit consulting solutions are innovative, creative, and original and that we help them find the perfect path through even the most daunting problems.

We have mastered best practices and benchmarks. Our real value is making them work for you.

Our work stands apart for its clear thinking and confident direction. Clients hire us to cut through complexity. They need practical solutions, that are easy to understand, and that they can execute with confidence. 

Our clients get powerful buy-in on our non-profit consulting recommendations execute them with confidence.

We don’t just deliver presentations –what some clients call “shelfware.” Instead, we help our clients achieve tangible and measurable results, working within their unique culture and with the limited resources they have. 

Our measure of success is that our clients implement our recommendations and that those recommendations get results.  

Clients tell us they use our work and it delivers great results for years to come.

our nonprofit experts

We left our careers as senior leaders of a Big Strategy firm to bring better consulting to membership organizations. We launched Sequence in 2001, focused exclusively on association growth. We have never looked back.

In our former lives, Chris was a high-level strategy, technology, and marketing consultant to Global 1000 companies. For more than a decade, he helped clients like Microsoft, Novell, American Airlines, and many others worldwide innovate and grow.

Lisa was a senior executive, working with CEOs and Boards on growth strategy, organizational change, and corporate development. She worked on more than forty mergers and acquisitions and helped grow a mid-size private firm into a publicly-traded company with 10,000 employees in thirty countries.

We believe in the work nonprofits do, so we both serve as Board and Committee Chairs for several nonprofit organizations.

Our vision is a world where all associations grow, thrive, and excel at serving their missions.
