Getting Off the Recruitment Merry-Go-Round: 

An In-Depth Discussion for Non-profit CEOs on Hiring, Retaining and Developing Talent for Maximum Impact 

A Discussion for nonprofit CEOs with revenues exceeding $5 million.


Friday, April 13, 2018  |  9:00 am to 11:30 am

Gridworks in downtown Durham (in the old Kress Building)
103 W Main St, Durham, NC 27701


Park across the street in the Church Street garage (see map).  Enter garage on Ramseur Street.  Walk into bldg. on Main Street.  Follow the hallway around to the elevator and come up to Level M.  Check yourself in on the ipad.  We’ll be out to get you.


Your team is the single biggest determinant of your organization’s success, second only to your own leadership capacity.  


At the same time 74% of employers say they have hired the wrong person for a position.

The cost of hiring the wrong person ranges from tens of thousands to over a hundred thousand dollars for high level positions when considering cost of hiring, training, loss of productivity and institutional knowledge.

Then there is the negative impact on your organizational culture when turnover is high.

These costs are particularly impactful for nonprofit organizations where every dollar of revenue is so hard won.


Join your peers to explore this critical issue on April 13th from 9 – 11:30 am.


We will explore:


What are the top 3 mistakes nonprofit organizations make in recruiting and retaining talent?

What are 2 ways to quickly reduce the risk of hiring the wrong person?

Keys to retaining the right people once you have them. (Hint: $$ is not the main reason people stay or go!)



Please join us for an Executive Round Table designed just for you.   

We will spend our time exploring questions related to hiring and retaining the right people including:


  • What is the real economic cost of turnover?
  • Why do employees really leave?  What the data says and what is your experience?
  • How can you be more intentional and strategic in your hiring and retention practices?
    • How can you increase your employees ‘life time value’?
    • Learn from your peers’ successes and mistakes (we’ve all made them!). 

In a small group setting of eight, you will have a chance to connect with other CEOs and Executive Directors who have a desire to hire and retain a team that can go the distance in bringing critical organizational visions to life.

“It was absolutely great working with Teri.  She got me to focus on ambitious goals for the organization and a vision for what North Carolina can become.  She helped me connect the vision to the specific nuts and bolts of how to achieve it – fundraising, management and staff structure, board development – so that the vision isn’t just a concept.  She challenged me to think about things in a way that took me out of my comfort zone, which helped me grow.

 By the end of 2016, many donors were responding to the call to substantially increase their support.  We are poised to have a banner year in revenue generation, land conservation and community engagement with environmental stewardship.”
