WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
David Greco was energetic, funny, engaging and informative. I loved that he also touched upon equity issues in the sector in terms of shifting the landscape.
I've been waiting for a workshop like this. It had real world application, hands on activities, and real-world examples. Topic is a must know for every organization.
Loved the speaker! Addressed real issues in nonprofit sector that many people don't talk about.
This is hands down the most effective, clear, concise and engaging way I've ever seen this content presented.
Both the walk through of understanding how to break down financials in a way to surmise need and storytelling appropriately. And the cheer-leading that reminded and empowered me to preach that outcomes require support of full process not just programs.
Fantastic topic - very important and relevant. David's energy and presentation skills are top notch.
The presenter kept it lively and pertinent - showed me how much I do not know but encouraged me to get busy and learn.
David really showed me how to own my numbers - understanding what the doom loop is and how to end it.
David is awesome!
Great as always. David Greco makes financial analysis accessible and less intimidating for us non-finance/accounting folks.
Illuminating knowledge of full cost budgeting. Understanding use of Balance Sheet vs P&L. Recognizing full costs of operations and programs.
Finance is not simply about balance sheets and income statements, it is about decision making. It is about having the timely, accurate and transparent financial data that board members, senior leadership and program staff need to make better decisions. It is about creating a culture that understands what it really takes to deliver on mission and is committed to building a revenue and business model that ensures financial sustainability and drives impact.
This innovative training seeks to create a culture of sustainability for social sector organizations. Through experiential, hands-on workshops, we will transform how senior leaders and board members work and create the visionary leadership that is going to push the organization and the field forward.
This highly interactive presentation will provide social sector leaders with a better understanding of what it really takes to deliver great outcomes, how to adapt the organization’s business and revenue models, and how to engage funders in conversation about the full cost of delivering impact.
We will examine the key issues including:
We believe that if you can change your thinking, you can change your organizations, and then you can change the world. But we will not get there with the same scarcity mindset that promotes organizations spending 95 cents out of every dollar on programs – all while starving the organization and its necessary infrastructure.
Our role as social sector leaders, funders, social entrepreneurs, and board members is to ensure that people continue to have access to the programs and services that are essential to creating a more just, equitable and sustainable world. To truly lead, we need to shift from a scarcity mindset that starts from a position of weakness and insignificance, to one that starts from a position of opportunity and strength.
