I enjoyed a series of presentations during SXSW 2015 hosted by Neiman Marcus to mark the launching of, “Make Some Noise.” The campaign “celebrates the most fearless, bold and fashionable women transforming the pop culture, fashion and music landscapes today.”
One of my favorites featured Freida Pinto, who talked about the challenges women around the world face to achieve their dreams of securing an education. Freida told the audience about “Girl Rising,” a documentary film and campaign to develop programs that mobilize not just nonprofits, but also government leaders and entrepreneurs to fund Girl Rising initiatives.

I was honored to speak during the 2015 NTC WordPress Day at the Austin Convention Center. Thanks to everyone who attended. I was gratified that one of my presentation guests launched her own blog the very next day!

I enjoyed visiting with Steve Vick of Nonprofit Ally last October. We discussed “asking,” with a bit of emphasis on corporate fundraising and working with CEOs. My personal stories illustrate well the fact that sometimes the best laid plans can change in the blink of an eye! Click on the banner below to listen (1 hour).
