NAPO-LA Ask the Experts Series:
Case Studies by Professional Organizers
Presented By
Cari Dawson - Small Business Organizing
Nancy McFarland - Photo Organizing
Cary Prince, CPO® - Organizing Creatives

How do professional organizers tackle their most challenging projects? Join us for a deep dive into three case studies by a panel of top experts in the Los Angeles area. Each organizer will share details from one client project that helped broaden her skill set. We will learn the strategies they considered, the obstacles they faced, and the solutions they implemented. We’ll discover what worked, and what didn’t, and what they learned along the way.
