The ‘goBeyondhello’ Board Outreach Series is a fun, interactive half-day program that shows board and key staff how to work in teams.  Learn how to uncover all those golden nuggets buried within your board and supporters.

    • Secure the board introductions and referrals you've always wanted
    • Get more board members making more asks with greater results
    • Create an engaged board consistently raising the money you need

Marshall is an attorney, former television network executive, teacher, and sales and marketing consultant. In the early 1980s, he founded Marshall Howard & Associates and Golf West. The goal was to combine an ongoing, collaborative relationship building program with a fundraising or customer appreciation event.

It worked.

Marshall quickly discovered the single biggest reason why most organizations experience continuous growth: their ability to build and maintain strong collaborative relationships, both internally and externally.

After 20 years of relationship development with nonprofits and corporations, big and small, nationwide, Marshall decided to make a greater impact, by writing his now nationally acclaimed bestseller, "Let's Have Lunch Together." Today, our work solely focuses on teaching his collaborative relationship building process.

Just as in his book, his publications, speeches, and training courses present practical, real-world solutions to the challenges facing organizations today. Marshall's programs show you how to use the power of collaborative relationships to:
  • build capacity
  • grow your business
  • foster climates of motivation
  • increase customer commitment
  • build organizational unity
  • build stronger teams
  • produce greater community impact
  • overcome unique management challenges
  • and make work and life more rewarding
