Cross-Canada Tour Begins

By · October 27, 2010 · Filed in News

GASP … well … here it is, a few days before the big Global Philanthropic Canadian business development tour begins.  October 31 – November 16 ……  17 days; 18 cities; 35 scheduled meetings; and 9 receptions. 

Its been a great journey so far reaching this point.  Launching a new national consulting firm is a lot of work, and crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s has required a tremendous amount of support from friends, colleagues, and family.  A special thank you to my wife Joni for her loyal support and patience during this busy time. 

So why a new national consultancy?  Well, there are so many good reasons … not the least of which, is there is a strong appetite in this country for ethical, professional, and responsible fundraising advice.  I am committed to ensuring that Global Philanthropic, with its strong history and tradition from Europe and Asia, will step up to the challenge here in Canada, and provide the marketplace with this much-needed service.

The key to Global’s success overseas has been helping their clients achieve their objectives through the transformative power of philanthropy.  Global draws its inspiration from the vision and commitment of its clients, to which they have applied their knowledge of the global philanthropic marketplace. A quick look at the Global Philanthropic client list will show you who has put their trust in the Global brand.  The result has been to bring ideas and capital together to form long-term partnerships for change.  This is pretty strong language, and with strong local leadership Associates and partners here in Canada, we will see that this success works it’s magic here in Canada also.

I hope you will drop me a line to provide your support and encouragement as I move forward in this venture.  I look forward to meeting as many colleagues and friends as possible over the next three weeks.
