Incredibly useful - thought provoking, pragmatic and practical advice. The video modules are particularly engaging and the reiteration of the message via the slides is clever. This is material which I feel I could usefully revisit on a regular basis and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to make a difference in the non-profit space.
