Support for the Public Sector – Government agencies and non-profits face special challenges. They frequently have many more interests and constituencies to serve than for-profit businesses. Effective action often requires very diverse and, sometimes bickering, factions to find common ground.

More than 50 organizations at the local, state, and federal level have benefited from Don’s services.
