“It was well worth my time to attend the in-person workshop. With a small group setting, it felt pandemic-safe and fostered the ability to share and discuss openly with other participants and the RNL consultants. I walked away with a variety of ideas to consider for my program but even better was the opportunity to create a specific action plan on how to implement one opportunity.”

Nicole Brennan, Senior Director, Annual & Mid-Level Giving, NorthShore University HealthSystem

“Wonderful experience. Loved the format, and we covered a lot of great information.”
