Ed O'Malley, Kansas Leadership Cent: The Key Ingredient to Fundraising Success

Ed O’Malley is the founding President and CEO of the Kansas Leadership Center. A central belief of the Kansas Leadership Center is that leadership is an activity, not a position. Ed’s remarks will focus on what the exercise of leadership looks like for fundraising professionals and what makes leadership difficult. KLC’s unique leadership framework will be presented and attendees will see their own leadership challenges and opportunities through the lens of this framework. KLC is a one-of-a-kind organization, working to transform cultures of organizations across the state and increasingly across the country and beyond. Join Ed and your colleagues in an exploration of a provocative leadership framework designed to help you make more progress on your leadership challenges.
