Paul Gravett Consulting

A little bit about me

With the benefit of many years as an executive leader of nonprofit organizations, I acquired experiences and skills in nearly all areas of running performing arts businesses.

Throughout my career I successfully maneuvered the delicate balance of dedication to mission, the need for strong initiatives, and the application of sound business management.

I learned that risk needs to be calculated and well timed, and long-term vision is achieved through strategic leadership and realistic action plans. I know a cohesive, well-informed board can bring great value to an organization, and well-managed finances offer vitality and sustainability to programs and services.

And most importantly, I know successful organizations need constant attention, nurturing and well-managed, thoughtful change.

With a strong track record of transformation and revitalization through capacity building, I am pleased to provide a range of services to support the growth and management of your nonprofit performing arts organization.
