I continue to provide consulting and coaching services on a range of topics (see "Workshops" section). Recent work has included:
GLOBAL LEADERSHIP FORUM (GLF)
GLF is a leadership and development program for executive directors and senior staff of U.S.-based global non-profit (NGO), philanthropic and other organizations. The program consists of three retreats over three seasons, with monthly meetings in between. One participant commented:
At the end of the day, the connections amongst other INGO leaders and the support systems we created are what will remain important. Communication about industry standards, best practices etc. are vital but not nearly as important as remaining open and genuinely curious about the world and ways that leaders are addressing pivotal issues around poverty. GLF took me out of my comfort zone so that I could enter into a new level leadership.

GLOBAL DONORS EXCHANGE
Global Donors Exchange is the new name for the Global Donors Conference. We are organizing quarterly "community conversations" for philanthropists with current or emerging interests in global issues. Our 2015 programs have included two sessions on "Full Funding for Results" addressing the chronic overhead and restricted funding issues. We plan a seminar on "The Art and Practice of Philanthropy" for early 2016. For more information, visit http://nwgdx.tumbler.com.
