Carole assisted our organization with the development of three financial scenarios with strategic outcomes. She took us through an insightful and valuable process that helped the board think through difficult questions. Her personal experience working in the arts and on Boards of Directors proved to be invaluable as she brought an incredible breadth of knowledge and understanding to the project. It has been an absolute pleasure learning from Carole and The Osborne Group and we look forward to finding ways to connect again in the future.
