If you want to hear a fast-talking Italian


I gave a speech at the City Club of Cleveland (my hometown) at 12:30 EDT on Friday, April 27. You can watch the rebroadcast of the speech as well as read the prepared remarks.

The speech seeks to lift up the Leap of Reason message—from one about outcomes assessment and performance management to one that is tightly focused on building high-performance institutions in the nonprofit and public sectors.

It is hard-hitting and speaks with urgency about the challenges nonprofits and public-sector agencies face as a result of seismic social, economic, and demographic shifts. But, as usual, it offers concrete, practical advice on how we can address these challenges head on.

And, as always, I welcome your feedback—the good, the bad, and the ugly.

My best,
