In between...

Home Friday, gone today....a good weekend. Got to make a significant donation to a local nonprofit over the weekend: a family chair that George Washington sat in when he visited one of my ancestors who fought with him in the Revolution...really.

Today, I'm off to San Francisco, to do book club calls tomorrow, and then a major presentation to what should be a very, very interesting group. The Bank of America Neighborhood Excellence Initiative(TM) has a Leadership Program that is intended to develop leaders in the best nonprofits in the country. Nonprofits compete for slots, and there are two training programs for each agency...one for emerging leaders one for CEO types. So, the leaders get to spend time with others like them and turbocharge their leadership skills. Great idea.

I'm fortunate to have been asked to speak to both groups on Nonprofit Stewardship. This week, it's the emerging leaders, and in April, I'll talk to the CEO/ED's. Lots of discussion, lots of interaction, etc. Should be fun and, I'm sure, more than a bit inspiring.

I'll let you know.....

Thanks for your note. Glad the book is helpful. Are you reading it in English or in Chinese? It's available in both, as is the Mission-Based Marketing Workbook.

Good luck, and do check out my website for other things that can help you, including my monthly newsletter...it's free.
