Susan Blackman consults with nonprofit organizations in the arts, education, social services, philanthropy, and others.
Managing Director, Kente Arts Alliance
“Kente Arts Alliance was merely surviving until Susan Blackman started working with us. Now we are thriving. She helped us to develop a 3-year strategic plan, expand our board, accumulate a healthy cash reserve, and follow a clear path to growth. After only 2 years of implementing our plan, we are attracting funders at a faster rate than we had originally hoped. Susan knows the small arts terrain in Pittsburgh better than anyone I know. If you get a chance to work with her, go for it. Susan is the best consultant out there.”
Executive Director, H.O.P.E. for Tomorrow
“Susan diligently worked with our board by leading us to a common consensus on our long-term direction. She walked us through practical steps that formed a strategic action plan on how we are going to get there. We are now operating as passionate people with a clear long-term vision. Thanks, Susan, for helping us get there!”
