Helping You Make a Difference


Let's Work Together! with Ron Philgreen

Ron PhilgreenRon will share some actual case histories of how a few cases came together with many key advisors working together.

Every major donor has a multiplicity of advisors (i.e. – attorney, CPA, financial planner, Registered Investment Advisor, Life Insurance Agent, Registered Representative, Realtor, Banker, Trust Officer from the profit and business world AND CEOs, Presidents, Directors of Development from one or two  or thirty non-profit organizations that he/she is supporting) many of whom have their own agendas and priorities which can not only conflict with all the other advisors, but more importantly with the goals and objectives of the donor.  Can We Work Together?  And How Are We Going To Do That?

What you will learn:

  • How to recognize the potential conflict between the donor’s many advisors
  • How to get all the advisors facing the donor and saying “how can we help you?”
  • Some actual case histories that demonstrate some successful team work with advisors

Who should attend?  Nonprofits and Advisors
