Consulting

Does you theatre need help?  Dr. Rhine can provide it.

 

Dr. Rhine is available for consulting, and focuses his organizational audits around two general topics: Strengthening current operations by addressing immediate financial and managerial issues, and developing long-term strategy to ensure a theatre is growing in resources and reach. 

 

Dr. Rhine develops action plans for organizations based on proven theory and decades of expertise designed to improve theatre performance in terms of their strategy, structure, operations, revenue generation, community reach, and management.  His work stretches from administrative areas such as human resources and finance to the community reach areas of marketing and development.  Boards are encouraged to contact Dr. Rhine for a free assessment of their situation and needs.  No consulting project is too big or too small.  Because Dr. Rhine is committed to the strengthening and development of theatre, consulting services are charged at a minimal fee only to cover cost and expenses.
