"To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions."

Benjamin Franklin

My parents wanted me to be an accountant, but that wasn't "me". Instead, I chose to put my business management degree to work in the non-profit sector. Every day I am amazed at how organizations do so much, with so little. I thrive on lending a helping hand to organizations, assisting them in managing their information more strategically, efficiently and effectively so their hands (and resources) are free to focus on their mission.

 

After over 10 years of non-profit experience, Barbara J. Fraser & Associates was formed in 2010 to help address the growing need for strategic information management among non-profits. Since then we have worked with more than 15 organizations in fields like:

 

  • International economic development

  • Health promotion and health care

  • LGBTQ community services

  • Newcomer services

  • Employment services

 

Helping organizations to configure and align their information management tools and processes to more effectively support programs and operations is like working on a (giant) crossword puzzle. The process is full of cryptic clues and can be open to interpretation. Using a simple framework to break down the components of the information management process, I help clients to optimize configuration, process and operations.

 

Highlights:

 

  • Bachelor of Business Management (Honours) from Ryerson where I focused on Human Resources Management

 

  • Varied roles in business, quasi-governmental, health promotion, literacy and educational organizations, to name a few

 

  • Hands-on experience in fund development including direct marketing and proposal development

 

 

  • Happiest leading clients through the bridge-building and cultural shifts necessary to create maximum impact from available resources

 

  • Completing my sixth term as a member and second year as the Chair of the Board of Family Association for Mental Health Everywhere (FAME), where I’ve participated in everything from website development to strategic planning and by-law revisions

 

  • Wide range of skills and experience that give me the ability to see the ‘big picture’ for an organization and then bring that understanding to the operational level
