    Dr. Michael Moody, a national expert and sought-after commentator on family philanthropy, will offer fascinating insight into the rising generation of major donors and other emerging trends that promise to fundamentally transform the practice of family giving in the years to come. Building on his best-selling co-authored book, Generation Impact (winner of the AFP/Skystone Partners Research Prize), Dr. Moody will reveal what we can expect as influential new donors, and new ways of giving, emerge in our community. He will also offer practical suggestions for how fundraisers, families, and others can best take advantage of these coming changes. Panel discussion to follow.

    Managing relationships with those above you—in the proverbial food chain—is often overlooked and under appreciated by even the most talented of leaders. Even those managers who actively and effectively supervise subordinates, products, markets and technologies tend to assume an almost passively reactive stance toward their boss. Most report that it just shouldn’t be necessary to “polish the apple” in order to get ahead. The Secrets of Managing Up reveals the process of consciously working with your boss in order to obtain the best possible results for you, your boss and your company.

    Our Speaker

    Angela Cusack, Ed.S., MCC, leverages her 25-years of corporate experience along with her Masters in Human and Organizational Learning from George Washington University to collaborate with nonprofit executive directors and their boards to fundamentally redesign their approach to leading by refocusing how they deliver against their value of doing good to do well. In addition to her own business, Igniting-Success, Angela is a business advisor to several organizations where she provides strategic guidance for people and organizational development, culture and business planning that aligns with the company’s brand strategy. She currently serves on the board of Richmond’s Community Bankers Bank in the 5th Federal Reserve District as well as on the Advisory Board of The University of Richmond’s Continuing Education program in non-profit leadership.
