CHAMPION CIRCLE: VOICES OF OUR CLIENTS

  • Community Planning
Ivory Rose Chambeshi is a consummate professional. She’s an excellent communicator: very thorough, and an excellent listener…she was always prompt with her deadlines and made sure that she clearly communicated our next steps as we worked together. The end result was amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who needs help branding themselves!
Jennifer Goodwin Lyles, Taproot Foundation
Ivory is a dynamic and effective consultant. I am amazed by her level of planning detail and ability to transform ideas and plans into action. She led planning and business development workshops for African women business owners in Zambia. It is exciting to see Ivory step into action, and interact and connect with our women participants. Ivory also facilitated the Anakazi Center’s strategic planning process by directing the planning committee team members through the process and developing a results-oriented action plan. Her combination of intelligence, commitment, creativity, and compassionate character make her an invaluable consultant.
Yareka Mhango, Executive Director, Anakazi Center for African Women Empowerment and Development
Ivory brings invaluable leadership, work ethic, and passion to her work. For our organization, she supported strategy development, communications, and partnership cultivation for the Los Angeles Campaign for Grade Level Reading, a multi-stakeholder effort to improve reading proficiency rates for third grade students of color in Los Angeles County. It was wonderful to have her in our corner as an insightful thought partner and creative accomplice helping to increase the impact of this effort.
Families In Schools
Urban Rising Group provided tremendous grant writing support for a recent RFP. Ivory is a people person, great communicator, and excellent problem solver. Her significant guidance, technical assistance and top-notch writing skills aided our organization with successfully receiving a multi-million dollar government contract that will help us further our work to support entrepreneurs and small businesses in South LA. It was wonderful to work with Ivory and Urban Rising Group and we will definitely work with the firm in the future.
