Mentor Series

What do you wish your staff with up to five years of consulting experience understood? They have the necessary content knowledge, but what about a fuller understanding of the role of a consultant, generating business and building relationships with clients? 

Designed specifically for newer members of the philanthropy consulting profession, our Mentor Series will include presentations by veteran experts in the field, roundtable discussions led by heads of consulting firms and an opportunity to meet consultants from other member firms.

This special program will include lunch and is open exclusively to GI members.
Registration is limited to 20.
