As many of our regular listeners know, the Leadership Focus is all about giving back and we love operating under the principle of "the triple bottom line", the idea of not just focusing on profits, but focusing on people, planet and profits in our thinking and in our actions.
Tonight we have long-time development expert Michael Montgomery. He is here to share with us how our companies can gain more benefit out of charitable giving, and hopefully use this awareness to increase giving to our local communities.
Montgomery's last staff fundraising job was the Chief Development Officer of Focus: HOPE (a Detroit civil and human rights organization). While there he launched the group's first major fundraising campaign which ultimately raised more than $81 million. Now a consultant to donors, whether businesses or foundations, and currently a faculty member at the College of Management at Lawrence Technological University, he is full of simple to implement, practical ideas that can help us all get better at doing good. Join executive coach and CEO of Focused Coaching, Lisa Pasbjerg, as she invites him to unlock the secrets for us of getting the greatest benefit out of our charitable giving.
