“I was lucky enough to end up with 7 board members (plus me) there -- the session motivated us in a way not much else has to cut through the fluff and personal baggage to really try to simplify what we want to do …the stuff about the salaries and overhead was so eye-opening!”

Liz Pease, Executive Director, Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society, Inc.


“Attending this training with my board chair gave us a collective confidence that scale and game changing aspirations are essential to achieving lasting and meaningful impact. We feel more ready than ever to scale and take risks! We plan to invite our entire board to the next one!”

Yolanda Coentro, President and CEO, Institute for Nonprofit Practice


"When I arrived, I also lugged in a fair amount of skepticism, but by lunchtime, it was gone. The conversational quality of Dan's presentation conveyed his considerable knowledge effectively, his occasional inclusion of personal anecdotes was on point and served to clarify otherwise complex ideas, and not once did it come across as scripted. The total avoidance of buzzwords and 'industry slang' enhanced Dan's communicative ability to the point that I discarded my auto-armor against it within an hour or so. The material was new to me and the approach fresh...I highly recommend this training.” 

Brian Hotchkiss, Board Member, Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society



“I left so fired up. I was basically high the rest of the day. Thank you so much."

Andrew Meyerson, Chief Haymaker, Haymakers for Hope

"If you're looking to get braver, dream bigger and become a more effective cause, you need to attend the Bolder Board Training.”

Clark Bryan, Founder, Aeolian Hall Musical Arts Association







“The Bolder Board Training is not complex nor is it beyond reach. It is achievable if one believes it is, if one accepts the challenge and if one looks to those gathered at the table and says, "you, too, can do this. We can all do it together." That's how we landed a man on the moon.”

Jack Armitage, Executive Director, Scleroderma Foundation New England
