I have been following Kathy for years and appreciate and marvel at her thoughtful, practical and evidence-based approach. Our Advancement team has participated in several of KDD Philanthropy’s webinars and I absolutely love the content focus on leadership and management skills within Advancement. The topics, such as how we position our team for greater success and what our development officers want and how we retain them, have provided invaluable information that I now use to help manage my teams more effectively. We also love the webinar takeaway exercises that help create follow up with the team. … I consider Kathy and Jim Langley, who presented with her in the “Philanthropy Thought Leader” webinar, my North Stars. If I’m lost or confused on how to proceed in my work, I always go back to them and their resources, and they help me focus on where I need to go next.
