His clients have included both large and small service, health, cultural and faith based organizations ranging from local and national home health care companies, to hospitals and health care systems...from community centers to national membership organizations...from military and law enforcement agencies to botanical gardens...from public school systems to state universities...from human relations organizations to faith based social service and religious entities throughout the U.S., Canada and Israel.
Mr. Olshansky has received national recognition for his work in human service and executive leadership. A frequent lecturer at Universities, he has also published a syndicated column, is a national book reviewer and instructor for CharityChannel.com, and is active as a volunteer in several civic, religious and professional organizations.
