What do our Clients say


Birth Choice of Oklahoma

“I want to express our gratitude for the wonderful and professional work done by the ESCCO team.  The time and effort put into the ESCCO study was beyond our expectations. Your perseverance during this study and the reporting of your findings to our Board of Directors was greatly appreciated.

“Thank you so much for your dedication to this project.”

Oklahoma Lawyers for Children

“ESCCO was very attuned to the transition stages our organization is experiencing. ESCCO’s analysis and advice for strengthening our board was on target and well-received.

“As a board primarily made up of very successful attorneys, time is a premium so ESCCO facilitated a strategic planning session which achieved more in a two-and-a-half hour session than any other strategic planning meeting I’ve ever attended,” Bruno-Thompson said. “Because of the format used for the meeting, we have been able complete that process to further develop our three- to five-year strategic plan.”

-- Tsinena Bruno-Thompson,  President and CEO of Oklahoma Lawyers for Children


Upward Transitions

“Upward Transitions mission is to elevate those who are in need, stranded or homeless to a position of self-sufficiency. We believe we are moving towards more homeless prevention services and the promotion of these services.

“I am a believer in the value of ESSCO’s Management Review. ESSCO’s report will provide a more focused plan to help with fundraising, marketing and other services. We talk about ESCCO at every opportunity and encourage other nonprofits to do the same.”

-- Dana Chism, Executive Director, Upward Transitions


Positive Tomorrows

“ESCCO helped my organization become more efficient and effective, not only in serving our clients, but also in building staff, donor and volunteer relationships. These relationships are the lifeblood of any nonprofit and we will be a much stronger organization as a result.

“The consultants were consummate professionals who understood our needs and provided their wisdom in a gentle yet clear manner.  While they had difficult questions to ask, staff members were not threatened by their presence.  Their recommendations were helpful and encouraging.
