Featured Client Success Stories
Modesto Symphony Orchestra

Executive Director Caroline Nickel knew low-hanging fruit was ready to be picked at the Modesto Symphony Orchestra. However, the demands of her position left little room to identify those opportunities.

Modesto Symphony engaged Nave Strategies to conduct an organizational analysis and identify opportunities that could have the biggest impact. The analysis led to sixty-five recommendations covering everything from ticket sales to executive board support. Nearly all of the recommendations could be implemented without any additional support. Instead of facing an endless possibility of adjustments, the data focused on potential quick win opportunities.


With these recommendations and data in hand, Caroline has led her staff to be more effective in marketing efforts, rethink their donor benefits to promote increased gifts, and develop a formal job description for the executive director. And that is just the beginning!
