I am a local nonprofit executive and I use Compasspoint's services a lot. I always look forward to their conferences because they are super lively and fun and address a lot of issues that not a lot of other people are willing to talk about honestly in the sector. And they really mix it up and get speakers who are though leaders yet are willing to mingle, make jokes and debate with the audience. I also find their studies to be right on the money. Their Daring to Lead study which looked at leadership challenges facing nonprofit executive directors is practial and well-researched. I haven't yet attended any of their trainings yet, but I've sent my employees there and they've said they learned a lot.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
passionate and bright with a willingness to both help individual nonprofit professionals get all the practical training they need, as well as advocate on a national level for issues facing nonprofit professionals.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
be a national support system for nonprofit professionals and a voice for the nonprofit sector.
