Growing Strategically

Is your organization positioned to grow?  More importantly, how do you grow in ways that are smart, sustainable, and on mission? Our experienced experts can help you create a customized strategy that addresses growth in every part of your organization—from nurturing new revenue streams and increasing membership to streamlining processes and promoting positive industry interactions. Let us help your organization grow—smarter.

Increasing Impact

You’re not alone—nearly every association, professional society, and not-for-profit is challenged to efficiently manage multiple goals, programs, and stakeholders—and it’s easy to lose focus. We put our institutional and experiential knowledge to work by helping generate new strategies that take your message and mission to new audiences in new ways—creating the greatest impact.

Embracing Change

The next generation sees the world differently from the ones before. They seek meaning, thrive on change and feedback, and don’t know a world without technology. Tomorrow’s organizations have digital platforms that support real-time interactions and community building. Does yours? We understand that rapid change can paralyze organizations and volunteer leaders if they aren’t thinking ahead and planning strategically. That’s where we come in—to help create smart, achievable plans that embrace innovation for long-term success.

Optimizing Resources

Disciplined planning, budgeting, and risk management aren’t “one and done” propositions. In fact, they require constant consideration and informed insights to successfully navigate a dynamic environment. We can help. From realizing organizational efficiencies to more strategically aligning your marketing, programming, and development initiatives, our skilled, hands-on team transforms outdated models into dynamic solutions that drive successful organizations.

Delivering Globally

Associations rely on Kellen’s European and Asian competencies to promote their products and services both locally and globally. Our Brussels-based multinational team manages EU-level associations and, with its experience and knowledge of the complex EU regulatory framework, offers expertise and tailored guidance across a wide range of industries. The Beijing-based team partners with associations, companies, and NGOs to navigate new markets as well as design and execute major conferences and events. In the Middle East, Kellen provides expertise on membership development, standards, and technology solutions.

Empowering Volunteer Leaders

Board members and committee chairs have the unique and valuable opportunity to give back to their industries and professions while also furthering their personal leadership goals. But how do you achieve both? Not only do we create orientation and training programs for new leaders, we also provide a framework for service that frees them to realize their own greatness—and the potential greatness of their organization.
