Board Retreats & Workshops
Vibrant. Engaging. Thought-Provoking. Inspirational. Relevant.
These are just a few of the words that audiences across the country use to describe Dennis’ presentations, trainings, keynotes and retreats.
“Transforming Governance – Building a High Performance Board”
A motivational and educational discussion on how to transform your board into a high performance results oriented board. Dennis will discuss the four stages of board governance, the role of the Governance Committee, how to overcome common board obstacles to success and how to measure and dramatically increase the level of motivation and engagement of the board.
“Creating a New Strategic and Inspirational Vision”
Too often strategic plan documents are neither “strategic” nor a “plan” and become useless dust collector sitting on someone’s shelf. This discussion will create a vision for your future that drives the passion of all key stakeholders with measurable and achievable targets of success, develops a positive brand identity, creates new sources of private funding and a comprehensive assessment of future board and leadership requirements.
“Engage and Motivate Your Board to Participate in Fundraising”
An interactive and thought-provoking discussion with your Board, CEO and Development Officer on how to transform how they think about fundraising. The discussion will help your board move from the “tin cup theory” to the “investment” theory of fundraising. Board members will learn and gain confidence in seeking investments for your success rather than ask for money for your needs.
Thank you for being such a fabulous, motivational speaker for our annual Board Retreat. Your organization was impeccable, your insights were right on target, and your presence was absorbing. To put it another way, the day, thanks to you, exceeded my expectations and clearly made a positive impact on the entire Board.

I wanted to personally thank you for your excellent presentation at our Board retreat. You touched on everything that I felt was important for our Board members to focus on and I particularly enjoyed you involving each one of them during the talk you gave. In short, everyone basically felt the same way Diana and I felt when we left your presentation last year in Orlando.
I remember saying to her I wish our Board could have heard that.
