Eric Narburgh

Consultant and Project Director

Eric Narburgh joined K&A in March 2015 as a Consultant and Project Director, in which role he is responsible for leading client projects, from writing proposals to managing client relationships and ensuring the quality of work on all documents and deliverables, meetings, and communications. Prior to joining K&A, Eric enjoyed eleven years at New York University, where his career began in the Office for University Development and Alumni Relations, reporting directly to the Senior Vice President during the public phase of a $2.5 billion campaign. In Fall 2009, he was appointed Director of Operations in the Office of the Dean at the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, an interdisciplinary school with 300 full-time faculty, 11 departments, and over 6,000 students. In this role, he managed school-wide projects, presentations, and reports in coordination with the deans and department chairs; oversaw event planning and communications; served as a liaison on matters including faculty governance and donor relations; and represented the school on a number of university-wide committees. Eric holds a bachelor’s degree in English, summa cum laude, from Binghamton University, and a master’s degree in performing arts administration from NYU Steinhardt. His extracurricular experiences have included internships with the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts, and volunteer roles with Origin Theatre Company and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Some of my highlights

Strategic planning, reviews of programs and services—basically, everything on the K&A menu.
I have master’s degree in performing arts administration, and I would love for K&A to facilitate a strategic planning process for an arts school or organization—that would be an exciting opportunity to put what I have learned, both as a student and as a supporter of the arts, into practice.
A core aspect of our strategic planning work involves having conversations with different constituents and then preparing summaries of the themes that emerge across those conversations. It’s important to the process that people feel their voices have been heard, and I take our responsibility in that process seriously. And, of course, it’s fun to encourage people to talk about their aspirations and to discover areas of agreement, sometimes where you least expect it.
