    American Public Transportation Association (APTA)

    APTA has been consistent in creating five-year strategic plans, which have effectively organized goals and key performance benchmarks. However, the Association realized that the current budget and business planning processes lacked measurable outcomes and ties to its strategic goals. APTA brought Davidoff in to construct a cohesive budget and planning process that is more tightly aligned with the organization’s mission, goals and strategic initiatives. The process will facilitate cross-departmental planning, coordination, cooperation and communication. Members will be more involved in decision-making and have ownership of shared successes.

    Blessings in a Backpack

    Chicago, IL and Louisville, KY

    During a strategic planning process which Davidoff was retained to design and facilitate, Davidoff provided a powerful vision for the Blessings in a Backpack board and executive leadership to more significantly address childhood hunger in the U.S. From this point of inspiration, the Blessings team raised its goal from providing weekend nutrition to 75,000 children nationally, each week, to one million children within the next five to ten years. Davidoff also developed an enhanced national corporate partnership and cause marketing program in order to support its ambitious growth goals and increase brand visibility, influence and impact on ending childhood hunger.
