Listening to Anthony Silard speech he held this week was indeed inspirational and I had quite a few “aha” moments. The power which he manages to transpose to the audience is immense and I loved how many real-life examples he had and numerous quotes or words of wisdom for every question we turned to. What’s even more amazing is how they all seemed to fit perfectly in the context and how broad his inspiration is from every corner of the world’s cultural heritage. Later on, when I got home and I sat down in silence for a while thinking about all the things I heard that day and I realized even more how much truth it was in those three hours of wisdom he shared with us. Unfortunately the every-day noise of the mundane things I need to take care of, slowly moves me away from those deep thoughts that Anthony managed to awake in my mind so, when that happens, I wish I had a can of his speech stored away in the fridge that I can turn to and refresh my mind. Fortunately, I have the book I am reading and which hopefully will put me on the right path by the time I will be done reading it

I have worked with 5 national organizations and have had the opportunity to participate in several leadership development programs, all valuable, but none of which compared to the quality and depth of ECPNL… the quality of the presenters was second to none … I feel so strongly about the Program’s worth to both me in terms of the “return on investment” that I have received and to future participants in terms of how they will benefit from the Program and enhance the nonprofit field….I highly recommend this Program for nonprofit leaders at any stage of their career.

Tony has a way of being that is authentic and welcoming. I liked the references he made to his role as Board President of the Global Education Partnership and his work overseas. His passion and commitment was evident. The approach was powerfully and passionately delivered…The retreat absolutely exceeded my expectations. PASSION and TRUTH are contagious! Tony is an example of a confident, compassionate, gentle person who has made a difference in this world. He is very special and a treasure.
