Are you in Orlando, Salt Lake City, Austin, Seattle, or Kansas City? I'll be coming to each and would love to get together.
Most of my work is private, with individual executive directors and their nonprofit teams. But I also love giving leadership and fundraising trainings at conferences. Here are some events I'll be presenting at:
WALT DISNEY WORLD: 9/11-16 NCDC Annual Conference (September 12-15)
I'll be doing two sessions: a seminar on "The Crisis in Nonprofit Leadership" and facilitating a discussion with leaders.

SEATTLE: Nonprofit Storytelling Conference (November 12-13)
I am so excited for our second annual Nonprofit Storytelling Conference! This conference transformed the way fundraisers, marketers, executive directors, and board members talked about their nonprofit. And we've seen alumni double and triple their fundraising! I'll be MC'ing the entire conference again and weaving storytelling nuggets between an amazing speaker lineup.
