Comments from participants at past Advancement Academy sessions:
“Maureen has a real talent
for addressing the needs of the audience in a general way, but digging deeper so that individual interests and questions are addressed as well.
“This information was incredibly helpful
and presented in a manner that was easy to follow.”
“I came in knowing very little, and left very informed/knowledgeable.
It was just what I needed.”
Both speakers were effective and highly knowledgeable. Truly, I expected it to be well done, but it exceeded my expectations.”
“You opened doors
that I didn’t even know existed. You also gave an opportunity to reflect, regroup and plan for future meetings.”
“It is always worthwhile to meet with peers and see the fabulous people who work in our sphere. I thought everything was very well paced and
the day was full of meaty material.”
“Thank you for developing
such a great class!
I feel more equipped, able and knowledgeable about major gifts.”
“This course was incredibly helpful.
I never sat through a day-long seminar and wished that it had been longer until now. I also really enjoyed the informal networking opportunity.”
“Speaker is very knowledgeable and speaks on a level
everyone can understand.”
“It’s always beneficial
to meet and discuss similar issues with colleagues in the field.”
“Advancement Academy is a wonderful asset to Pittsburgh’s nonprofit community. Maureen is so
knowledgeable and down to earth,
making her a very effective teacher. Janet is also wonderful and provides some great anecdotes from her own professional experience to supplement the material.”
“The session was great! I learned a lot and have a few action steps to start on as soon as possible. It was a wonderful way to spend the day!
