Educating nonprofits in leadership, board development, marketing, and events is my true passion.  My classes start at $500 and are a great opportunity to educate your board, volunteers, staff or group.

My most popular class is Beyond the Thank-you: Top Ten Tactics to Ensure Loyal Donors—This class is designed to build life long donors and teaches nonprofits the steps they need to execute to insure that donors, “feel the love.”

Other top classes include:
  • Power of Connecting with the Community, Organization, and Each Other

  • Building a Better Brand
  • Social Media for Nonprofits
  • Year End Fundraising
