Peter Duffin

Former SVP, Brand & Marketing, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

Tom has one of the industry's leading arts marketing minds. This, coupled with his first-rate interpersonal, organizational and presentation skills, makes him a multifaceted consultant who can not only conceptualize a project but also develop a reality-based implementation plan. In short, you'll get way more than you pay for!

Gilly Brierley

Assistant General Manager, Marketing & Communications

The Metropolitan Opera

I arrived in New York in 2014 with a very limited network of contacts and was lucky enough to meet Tom within my first few weeks in my new role. His generosity of time and spirit was extraordinary from the start. More recently I had the privilege of working with Tom on a consultancy basis and it became clear that he has an exceptional arts marketing intelligence coupled with an ability to dissect organizational challenges with insightful clarity.

Capacity Interactive

Tom is a unique leader who operates from both his right and left brain. He combines strategic thinking and analysis with great empathy and a strong understanding of people. He understands our field and its unique challenges. He's an incredible resource and someone I often turn to when I need advice or an introduction (because he knows everybody!). Plus, he's hilarious and a joy to be around.
