“Kaajal brings so much wisdom, passion, skills and experience to the strategic planning processes and work she does. She is thorough, invites a lot of truth telling, and is so compassionate. Kaajal does an amazing job of tracking the many forces at play within organizations - externally and internally- to make sure the work stays on the pulse. She strikes that fine balance of being able to provide strong guidance while also creating opportunities to build leadership within the organization. Kaajal is powerful in her ability to zoom out and see the larger picture while holding nuance to detail. She ensures that groups can create and adapt strategic forward movement, holding the larger vision and the practical steps it will take to get there. I know I will learn a lot when working with Kaajal.”

"I worked with K Shah Consulting for about 2 years and it was an absolute pleasure! Kaajal's knowledge of the tasks at hand and of the non-profit sector were second to none. Her devotion to the work and attention to detail, while keeping the big picture goals in mind, were truly special and something to strive for in my own work. We not only got a TON accomplished in our time together, but it was also a very enjoyable working relationship. Kaajal pushed me to get it "right" and our organization is light years ahead of where we were before working with Ms. Shah."

"Kaajal believed and was committed to our mission from the very beginning. She has always been supportive to us and given us the institutional knowledge we've needed to be successful. She has been a friend and confidant and someone that you can rely on when times become rocky. I thank her for everything she has done for us and look forward to continuing our relationship and continuing to see her grow."
Brandon JohnsExecutive Director Making a New United People
“Great ideas, creative examples and information that can be readily applied to my agencies processes. Kaajal was great at speaking to the group and presenting the information so everyone was able to process and follow. Excellent presentation style.”
“The amount of information received and the background of the presenter in delivering the information was most useful about the presentation.”

"What we found in K Shah Consulting was such a unique combination of expertise in nonprofit management and capacity building, while bringing an extra layer of knowledge of community and sensitivity and awareness.
Kaajal's interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence are extremely high. She was able to understand what I was going through as an Executive Director, as well as what others within were dealing with. She worked with within all levels of our organization - engaging multiple stakeholders.
K Shah Consulting's commitment to social justice was also critical in our work together."
