KEYNOTES and WORKSHOPS
For: donors, grantmaking foundations
Philanthropy provides a great opportunity: to give wisely in ways that make a difference. What should the attitude of the giver be? What are the greatest challenges, stumbling blocks, and pitfalls for the donor? What are ways in which the
experience of giving can achieve the greatest benefit -and the best emotional rewards for both giver and grantee?
For: general audiencesWhether you give $5 or $5million, you can, and should, think like a philanthropist. Learn how your charitable giving can make a difference, reflect your values, and affirm your priorities. This seminar teaches techniques and approaches which
will make you a wiser and more strategic donor whatever your age or income level.
For: General audiencesThe common wisdom is that a problem of contemporary life is the loss of community, and that most Americans are in search of meaningful and transcendent communities. The presentation challenges that assumption, based on the behavior
patterns and observed preferences. For better or worse, it appears that the most successful institutions are those which provide connection and not community. It addresses how individuals can understand and address gaps in their own experiences and how organizations can become better listeners to ever changing constituencies.
For: general audiencesAre you starting your career? Thinking of changing careers? Does it appear that people in the notfor-profit realm are making more of a difference than you are? Or do people making more money seem to have more fun than you? Learn how to maximize your own opportunities and explode the most common myths about various choices...and to decide what is right for you.
