william keensAfter many years of brilliant meeting facilitation and consensus building, and helping nonprofit organizations make the world a better place, William Keens has retired to an emeritus status to devote more time to his family and his poetry. Although Bill no longer sees clients, he continues to be a guiding light and inspiration behind the firm, and his approach and methods are a core element of how we work with clients.

Bill was educated as a writer, spent several years teaching, and worked in both community-based and national agencies before founding the Washington area office of WolfBrown, a national consulting firm focused on the arts & culture.

Bill graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and received his masters in creative writing from the Iowa Writers Workshop. He is the son of a painter and tobacco factory worker and the grandson of self-taught immigrants, all of whom shared their conviction in the virtue of common sense in service to high ideals. He has published two books of poetry and continues to write.
