(Tammy serving as ED leading a virtual management team)

“Tammy Hauser of Blue Sky Thinking has guided our national association through a difficult transition and transformation into a viable and meaningful non-profit organization serving the dance industry. She has demonstrated tremendous skill in working with diverse, opinionated, and entrepreneurial-minded personalities and has brought us together as a cohesive and purposeful group. She is knowledgeable, diplomatic, and efficient. I would highly recommend Tammy and Blue Sky Thinking to any organization looking for consultation and direction.”

MICHELLE KRESGE, Founding Board President
the Association of Dance Conventions & Competitions

“As an interim executive director and consultant, Tammy was instrumental in restructuring High Tech Kids from a loosely organized founder-based non-profit to sustainable organization with a well- rounded board, a diversity of funders and a well-functioning staff. She really led us out of the wilderness.”

Fred Rose, Founder, High Tech Kids

“Tammy Hauser, CEO of Blue Sky Thinking, served as the Interim Executive Director during a critical period for our organization, Springboard for the Arts. The board wanted someone who could actually move the organization forward and not just maintain the status quo during our search for an Executive Director.

Tammy was the right person for the job. She was able to quickly determine changes that needed to be made to streamline the organization; and she had the skills, connections, and fundraising ability to make those changes. She also recommended some new and exciting strategic initiatives. Perhaps most importantly, her personality and enthusiasm created a positive environment for change and growth, as well as strengthened relationships with funders and partners of Springboard.”

Katey Leitch, Board Chair
Consulting Services

“Tammy Hauser and I worked together to facilitate a non-profit merger. Tammy is a team player. She is strategic and sees the big picture. From difficult circumstances she is able to see the potential and bring others along for positive outcomes. Tammy is professional and committed. I had a great experience working with her.”

Janelle Dixon, President/CEO at Animal Humane Society

“After our Board Retreat led by Tammy Hauser, my board members told me that it was the BEST retreat they have ever attended—fun, engaging, effective and inspiring! We accomplished more than I ever expected we would in such a short time.”

Chris Voelkers, Humane Society of Sarasota County Board Chair

“Tammy is one of the most dynamic and creative thinkers I’ve worked with. She has terrific ideas and the ability to make them happen. She’s reliable and quick, without missing a detail. I would not hesitate to hire Tammy or Blue Sky Thinking again if (and when) the opportunity presents itself.”

Lori-Anne Williams, Grants Writer at Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, former Board Chair, Ramsey County Library Foundation

“BST helped us enormously as we developed a three-year Strategic Plan for the Neighborhood Health Care Network. Unlike several other consultants we considered, Tammy tailored her services to our unique needs as a consortium of 14 separate organizations and was able to help us navigate a very complex environment and set of opportunities, needs, and challenges. I was especially impressed by her understanding of the business side of running a membership-based organization and her sense of what makes for an effective, actionable plan.”

Darcy Dungen-Siever, Development Director, NHCN
Start-Ups and Re-Inventions

“I have hired Tammy twice to reinvigorate non-profits and build momentum for growth. She is  exceptional.”

Bonnie Holub, Program Manager, Electronic Data Warehouse at UCare

“Tammy is a very enthusiastic leader. Her positivism is infectious and despite the fact that she’s an idea factory, she always listened to the other staff, letting us have input and ownership in what we were creating together. We had fun and got a lot accomplished when Tammy was our Executive Director. The organization moved briskly into the 21st Century (technology-wise) and the table was set for our new Executive Director.”
