I have been speaking at nonprofit events and conferences in the United States and around the world for the past twenty years and am consistently a high rated speaker.     I am also a seasoned workshop leader and facilitator and conference presenter.   I speak and teach the topics in my books, The Networked Nonprofit, Measuring the Networked Nonprofit, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit, and The Emerging Nonprofit Leader’s Playbook.   My presentation style is participatory and I use many facilitation techniques to engage the audience.
