Praise for Jamie's 2015 #GivingTuesday Webinar: 

"One of the better webinars I've engaged in. Lots of very specific advice, I have pages of notes that I will keep on my desk and use, rather than file away in my "professional development" folder. You held my attention all the way through without drifting away to the stack of work on my desk."

"I greatly appreciated your clear steps and examples, and focus on simplicity in tandem with strategy. It was inspiring and made it feel achievable to start by doing at least certain things, while building toward the full picture."

"Jamie, you were tremendous. Although I have been doing this for 25 years and you gave me several new ways to think about ways we can more effectively raise funds..."
