Time For Some Updates

After three delays over the summer, I finally found the time to update my consulting and professional overview sites. The latter only required some minor copy tweaks, but the former was a different story as it had not seen any major updates in about three years.

In addition to a complete redesign and new logo, there is a great deal of edited copy and new sections highlighting conference and speaking gigs. I’ve also paired down some of the services I used to offer.

On that point, there comes a time where anyone who works the consulting scene reaches a point where business is strong and consistent enough, they can begin to be far more selective of the work they accept. In my case, all the work connected to my consulting services has moved in that direction but thanks to the even faster acceleration of business via The Venture Platform, I’ve been fortunate enough to cross that threshold earlier than originally planned.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
