"The Humane Society of Indianapolis employed Social Legends to direct and guide our new three-year strategic plan. At that time, the organization was finally debt-free, had accomplished several major program goals, and opened a second location with low-cost, high-volume spay/neuter.

 

Kelly’s approach was extensive. She led a day-long retreat with the entire staff, and another with the Board and Senior Management, and facilitated several focus groups with select board members and senior management. Throughout this process, she guided a leadership team with key board and staff. This planning brought together important financial sustainability, donor, community impact, public awareness, and culture initiatives. Each has its own metric to guide us in the next three years. I don't believe the organization has ever had such a comprehensive strategic plan.

 

Our plan includes large “dreams” such as expansion, and endowment, and a new shelter. Kelly has provided tools for the leadership to thoroughly examine new additions or expansions. It also provided the organization a strong executive summary that is often used with major donors and reinforces solid planning. As a result, we invited Social Legends to guide a year-long Board Engagement Plan in 2016 which is designed to help us build board expectations and involvement and to grow the board."
