Testimonials

PSI

“Sea Change’s Unleash Your Inner Storytelling workshop has radically shifted the way my organization views and practices storytelling. We have led the workshop in Haiti, Uganda, Congo, Tanzania and here at our Washington D.C. Headquarters. Each time, we have been floored by the quality of stories participants write during the training.”

– Margaret Cohen, Deputy Director, Individual & Major Gifts

Friends of the Earth

We knew we needed to launch a mid-level donor program, but we also knew we were missing something.  Turns out that something was Sea Change.  Not only did they help us analyze how to design a program tailored to our donors, they helped translate those recommendations to our board.   And to top it off, working with Mark and Alia has been a blast!”

Innocence Project

“Mark, Alia and the rest of the team at Sea Change are big thinkers and leaders in their field, but they’re also doers. They care about the causes they work on and they make it a personal mission to help clients engage with supporters, raise money and develop sustainable systems to build on this success.

Sea Change brings the right mix of smart, passionate and fun to cause-focused campaigns and I’d work with them again in a second.”

– Matt Kelley, Online Communications Manager

“The Sea Change folks are master storytellers, they are savvy web watchers, they are envelope pushers, they are money raisers, and they are super fun to work with. Consultants don’t come in better-rounded packages than that.”

Primary Care Progress

“Working with Mark and Alia at Sea Change was like working with extended members of our team. They both had a natural understanding of our needs and where our pain points were.

Working with them was effortless, but so gratifying. Mark and Alia gave us a gift- they gave us deep insight into our constituents and rebranding recommendations that we were able to put into effect immediately. We feel reborn!”
– Dr. Andrew Morris-Singer, President and Principal Founder

WomenHeart

“When I started at WomenHeart, I knew I was taking the reins at a unique organization — but we knew very little about our members and constituents. Under the direction and guidance of Sea Change Strategies, we began an in-depth look at who these people are and why they are involved in the organization. The responses we received were illuminating and fascinating and provided the new direction we would take as an organization. Thanks to Sea Change, we have undergone a complete rebranding and developed strategies to engage and involve all of our current members while attracting new ones.”

– Lisa M. Tate, Chief Executive Officer
