Boldness, clarity and wisdom for fundraising professionals
Do you work your butt off every day and still feel like you’re not making an impact? The Influential Executive Director Series was designed for smart, busy people exactly like you. It takes the guess work out of wondering when you’ll have time to plan for big growth. We’ll do it…together!
