1000 Cranes Wins Contract with Success Measures!

2017-01-17T17:23:30-05:00May 1st, 2008|1000 Cranes News|

I’m pleased to announce that 1000 Cranes has entered into an agreement as an authorized consultant with Success Measures, a program of NeighborWorks America

1000 Cranes has several clients providing support to Community Economic Development (CED) communities in North and South Carolina who use the Success Measures Data System (SMDS)  for their program measurement efforts.  This relationship with Success Measures/NeighborWorks positions 1000 Cranes as a leader in the CED field in outcomes measurements.

With more funders looking for results-driven measurements, it’s anticipated this area will continue to grow for 1000 Cranes.

1000 Cranes Opens Toronto Presence!

2017-01-17T17:23:33-05:00April 1st, 2008|1000 Cranes News|

I’m pleased to report that 1000 Cranes has entered into a three year agreement with Regus/HQ systems for a presence in Toronto, Ontario which begins today, no foolin’! 

After recently registering the company with the Ontario Province as a Non-Provincial LLC at the end of February, it made sense to begin looking for a location where we could conduct meetings and recruit local talent to help on a contract basis. 

The new address is located at 1 Dundas Street West, Suite 2500, Toronto, ON  M5G 1Z3. 

It’s located right next to the Eaton Centre with easy access from the TTC Subway stations at Dundas or Queen Street on the Yonge Line. 

We find this to be a strategic move for 1000 Cranes to efectively deliver services in the Canadian market.   This, in addition to our recent addition of the Washington, DC address, positions 1000 Cranes to be a serious contender for future contracts and engagements.  […]

Video Can Make a Difference in Winning Business

I received an email inquiry from a potential client in Louisiana as she met me at the Alliance for Nonprofit Management Conference in Atlanta last year. 

When I spoke with her on the phone today, she was thrilled to see some of my videos on YouTube, and she said she appreciated that I put them there as it was much easier for her to tell people to go to my YouTube account to see me in action than to try to describe my personality and facilitation style. 

Here’s an example of a video interview with Anne Taylor of the Environmental Education Fund:

I mentioned to her that I know of another speaker that does video intros for new customers as a prelude to the upcoming event, and that I may decide to do that when I’ve secured a speaking engagements.  She thought it was a great idea to better personalize the event, so stay tuned folks as that may be the beginning of a […]

1000 Cranes Registers in Ontario, Canada

2017-01-17T17:23:46-05:00February 22nd, 2008|1000 Cranes News|

Today, I’ve been in Toronto, and I went to the Ministry of Government Services on University Avenue to register 1000 Cranes as an extra-provincial limited liability company.   So officially, today, 1000 Cranes has gone international! 

With Toronto as the 5th largest city in North America, and an interest in expanding into this region, it made sense to register the company for anticipated growth in the future.

As many of you know, 1000 Cranes has invested quite a bit in the branding of its name in the United States with registered trademarks through the US Patent and Trademark Office.   

Fortunately, the 1000 Cranes name has not been used in Ontario, and we have claimed the name.  Now that we’re registered here, we can start looking at plans to move this company forward in providing business consulting services in this market. 

We’re in discussions with Regus centers here locally, and we anticipate we may be […]
