The help you need in two hours or less?
Yes. It’s attainable and affordable.
For years over 20 years I’ve worked with small to mid-sized nonprofit organizations to assist them with their marketing, public relations and event planning needs.
What do I love best about what I do? When just one piece of advice can turn an organization around. I’ve seen it, I’ve done it, and I love it! Now it is your turn. Let’s talk.
Nonprofits inspire me because they have small but mighty teams that have the vision and tenacity to fulfil their mission despite huge obstacles and sometimes even bigger odds stacked against them. I’ve worked with nonprofit groups in healthcare, technology, higher education and the arts—some for years. However, being embedded with clients for seasons meant there were many more groups I couldn’t assist.
That is why I’m setting aside a certain amount of hours each month to provide consultations to nonprofits that either don’t have the budget or don’t need full-time help.
Interested? Fill out this short form so I have an idea of what is keeping you up at night, this will help our future discussions.

Although many people know Dayla for her outstanding event planning work (especially in the non-profit space) and her leadership with Boston Women in Media and Entertainment, I had the pleasure of working with her from a Communications/PR standpoint during a time of multiple changes following my acquisition of the firm. My concern was that some of clients (especially our older clients of the acquired firm), might be overwhelmed by too many changes at one time and potentially move elsewhere. Dayla was able to talk through my concerns and then articulate an effective communications strategy that was easy for our team to implement. I highly recommend Dayla for her media strategy consulting services for businesses and non-profit organizations of all sizes!

Dayla Arabella has produced several terrific events for my non-profit organization. She brings the same skill and high quality to small events with tight budgets that she brings to larger scale clients. We have been so impressed by her creativity with unusual spaces/circumstances, patience with the inevitable undulations of event and client needs, and clear understanding of the client’s goals. We can’t help but recommend the indefatigable Dayla Arabella very highly for your important events, large and small.
