Update on ESC services during the Covid-19 crisis – WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!

Although our in-person bootcamps, ED roundtables, classes and workshops have been cancelled indefinitely due to the crisis, our 70+ coaches and consultants remain available for consultation via phone or video conferencing.  With expertise in a wide range of nonprofit specific issues, including but not limited to human resources, finance, technology application, operations, and crisis management, we are uniquely motivated and qualified to help your organization adapt.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

With the safety of our employees, volunteers, and clients as a top priority, we have accelerated the use of video conferencing and are adapting some of our best practices content for delivery by such mechanisms.  

We wish you wellness and continued mission success.
