NONPROFIT CONSULTING EXPERTS

Our Nonprofit Consulting Experts

We left our careers as senior partners in a Big Strategy firm to bring better consulting to membership organizations. We believe associations change the world, and by making them better, we make the world a better place. We launched Sequence in 2001,  focused exclusively on associations and nonprofit consulting services. We have never looked back.

We believe in the work nonprofits do and serve on the Boards of several nonprofit organizations.

Our Promise To Our Clients

What You Can Expect From Us

We have worked almost exclusively with associations for 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 nonprofit consulting firm can bring that 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 nonprofit consulting services 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. 

Our clients get complete internal buy-in on our nonprofit consulting recommendations and execute them confidently.

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 their existing resources. 

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

Clients tell us they use our work to deliver excellent results for years to come.
