RECENT REVIEWS Nonprofit Coffee Talk

My guest appearance on the Nonprofit Coffee Talk with Libby was one of the most refreshing and welcoming starts to my mornings. The unscripted, yet natural and free flowing conversation made it easy to navigate complicated and tough conversations, and Libby’s questions were timely in helping dig into the root of some of the issues we identified in nonprofit RFPs and outsourcing. I highly recommend the Nonprofit Coffee Talk as a resource for anyone in the nonprofit space, whether you’re in house or an external supporter or facilitator, and also recommend Libby for any genuine and fun conversations!

What I most enjoyed from being a guest on Nonprofit Coffee Talk was Libby's hospitality.  She was warm and welcoming and met with me before the interview  to get a better understanding of who I am and what I am passionate about.  I love talking about nonprofit boards. Libby asked thoughtful open ended questions that allowed me to expound on what equitable board work could look like.  The conversation was informative, rich, and authentic.  As a result, I did receive a few comments from those who watched and thought the content to be useful. I have told other colleagues about Libby and suggested they interview with her on the podcast.  It was a wonderful experience!

It was such a pleasure to be a guest on The Nonprofit Coffee Talk! The podcast covers so many important topics for nonprofits, so I was honored to be included in the line up as someone who has valuable information to share with the nonprofit sector. Libby has such a calm and kind demeanor that made me feel as if I was simply having a 30-minute conversation with an old friend. She is also a very skilled interviewer, and her questions naturally drew out all the information that her audience really needed to hear. She invited me back to speak again soon, and I gladly accepted! I'm looking forward to returning.
