founder, BEYOND PINK
I am so grateful for the help and support that Incite! Consulting Group and Kari have provided me and Beyond Pink over the last year. We were at the very beginning of developing our board but did not have a feel for the direction we needed to head or an understanding of the governances and development that we needed to make.
Kari took us from square one and started there. She educated the board members we had, defined roles, helped us develop our basic committees, and changed the way we looked at the job we needed to be doing as a working board. She helped realize some of our members were great board members and some were great candidates for advisory council members.
She took on the tough subjects and helped us understand why we needed to make some changes. We had our first board retreat and made some great headway on defining our goals, and how we were going to get there. She walked us through governances and helped us realize we needed updated bylaws and is working us through strategic planning and how to bring our nonprofit to a whole new level.
What an education we have gotten and what support she has been, it is truly a priceless service she offers and one that will help us stay focused, on track and raising more funds so we can help more people which I feel the goal of every nonprofit. I would recommend this service for every board, you will not be disappointed!
I highly recommend Kari Anderson/Incite! Consulting Group to any non-profit organization, or individual, seeking growth so that they can better serve their clients.
She kept our team focused and on task, net revenue was doubled and we were able to track the information accurately.
FORMER BOARD CHAIRMAN
Incite Consulting Group has helped us make tremendous strides in our organization.
Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and accountability has been exactly what we have needed to motivate our board and move forward.
She encourages the tough questions and expects that the organizations she works with To Do The Work.

Kari was able to clearly, effectively share with us what the board role should be; and she gave us clear steps on how to achieve it.
Not only is Kari engaging, but she's funny, smart and TO THE POINT, without being disrespectful or snarky.
I couldn't recommend Kari enough. Her knowledge of the non profit world is deep and broad-and she is a fantastic teacher.

Kari led Perry Technical Institute through a strategic planning process. Kari was able to outline a process that took us from data collection to goal development.
Kari is a high energy person who brings both enthusiasm and expertise to a project.
Kari was easy to work with and remained flexible to help us develop a process that was inclusive, budget friendly, and resulted in a document that would guide us over the next three years.
Former Foundation Director
Kari was not only a huge help with my organization but another non profit that I am connected to as well. She has the ability to get to the “heart” of the organization and help both staff and board retool and rethink the roles we all play.
What I appreciate most is that once you work with Kari, you become a part of her “business family” and she continues to connect and inspire long after the assigned work is done.
Her skill set is truly unique and her connection changed the way I lead my organization. My board still references her input now 3 years later.
Kari helped me personally as our organization went through a transition in Leadership.
Faced with some big decisions both as an organization and as an individual Kari was instrumental in asking questions that helped me arrive at the right answer.
I look forward to working more with Kari in the future she is a treasure to have as a resource in our community!
In 35 years of periodically participating in facilitated NGO board retreats I’ve rarely been as assured of the breadth and depth of the facilitator’s skill set and non-profit sector dexterity as I was last week with you and your care for InterConnections 21. Thank you! We are lucky to be working with you.
Thank you for your quick and thorough follow up and for the useful work products you’ve forwarded to us.

Kari recently facilitated a strategic Fund Development workshop for our nonprofit organization. She brought an immense amount of insight to a board that has had limited knowledge of all the options and strategies available to us. Her knowledge and expertise gave us a multitude of great ideas, and her energy and enthusiasm simply lit us up!

Kari’s work with the Youth Services of Kittitas County Board of Directors has been inspirational and pivotal to the health and growth of the organization. With Kari’s positive energy, knowledge of organizational development skills, and encouragement, the Board was able to identify immediate and long-term goals, clearly define board leadership and roles, and commit to dedicated action. Kari expands possibilities and horizons, and provides excellent infrastructure support. She is a much-appreciated asset to our organization, and thus, the youth of Kittitas County.

It’s been a real pleasure working with Incite! Consulting Group in general, but I think that FISH was most impacted by the assistance Kari provided in guiding us through hiring our new executive director. She encouraged us to think outside the box with regard to possible candidates and in taking your advice, we found Brooke. She will have a long-lasting impact on FISH, and Incite! played a big part that by encouraging us to dream big. Thank you!

I can’t say enough about how helpful my consulting sessions were with Kari Anderson. Her experience, passion, practical wisdom, and keen insight provided a framework for leading, raising money and structuring my week that truly revolutionized my role as executive director. A few weeks into putting her wisdom into practice, I procured a 5 year/$50,000 commitment from a local business to help support our organization as well as a number of small donations that would more than make up for any fee for her services. She is the real deal. Authentic. Experienced. Driven. Committed. I highly, highly recommend her services.

The Historic Downtown Chelan Association worked with Kari for our 2016 Annual Board Retreat. Hiring Kari to facilitate that meeting was one of our best investments all year. All board members and staff agreed we’d do again in a heartbeat! Our board is relatively young and needed guidance from a seasoned veteran.

That is what we found in Kari. She provided leadership and helped the group understand the role of the board versus the role of staff. She guided us in digging through all the muck to identify our real priorities for 2017. After defining those goals, she helped us determine action items and desired dates of completion to get us to those goals. I was especially impressed that Kari followed up to hold us accountable for those goals and their completion dates. From start to finish, Kari was a great advisor to our group and had a lasting impact for which we’re thankful!
Former Executive Director, Historic Chelan Downtown Association
As a new Director of a nonprofit I was scared and clueless as to what my role was. Kari allowed me to see that I intuitively knew what I was doing and showed me how to capitalize on my passion for the mission. She provided me with moral support, important documents, leadership coaching, and explanations of processes that were new to me. I can honestly say that without Kari’s knowledge and leadership at the start of this adventure, the organization may not have made it. Today we are successful and thriving because of the strong foundation created with Kari’s guidance! Thank you!
