Liberating Structures Workshop

December 2019, Center for Nonprofits NJ, Annual Conference

Impressions from facilitating a Liberating Structures Workshop with Julia (Julie) Erickson, MBA at the NJ Nonprofit Council conference. Collaborations made fun and easy - the key to success in philanthropy and fundraising.


We experienced four LS methods (1-2-4 All, TRIZ, 15 % Solutions and Impromptu Networking) with 50 nonprofit leaders and professionals. It was awesome! Stay tuned for more Liberating Structures workshops coming up.

Prospect Research in the US
May 2019, Deutscher Fundraising Kongress (German Fundraising Conference)

It was a privilege to speak at the National German Fundraising Conference (Deutscher Fundraising Kongress) in May 2019!

My session about prospect research - how to identify individual donors and foundations in the United States- was timely: the global fundraising market is expanding!  Many major donors are global citizens and cross-border philanthropy is on the rise.

Liberating Structures Workshops

February 2019, NY City Parks & Recreation Program Summit

I had that most amazing Liberating Structures experience with LS facilitator Nancy White from Seattle and my colleague Dana Pylayeva. Being able to co-facilitate along Nancy was energizing – but most energizing was to see how the Liberating Structures techniques brought a diverse staff from the NY Parks & Recreation department together. LS unleashed their passion and brought everyone together.
