In my 20 years of nonprofit leadership, I have worked with a number of executive search firms. None has been more thorough, thoughtful and truly enjoyable to work with than Wendy Dyer. The process was fun and educational. Wendy knows firsthand what it takes to be a nonprofit executive and most certainly secures the best of the best candidates for her clients.

—Tom Barry, Easter Seals Midwest

 

Many consultants are about theory…Wendy is about action!  Wendy is a “get in the weeds with you” kind of consultant.  She had a deep knowledge of our region’s philanthropic landscape and she will tap into it for you.  Wendy can do it all…from working with Boards to Executive Directors to Development Staff.

Wendy helped us understand and manage our first ever campaign. Plus, she’s funny, kind, hard working and great to have on the team.

—Kelly Garrett, KIPP St. Louis

 

The format of Wendy’s training was excellent in that she introduced a concept, kept the discussions interactive, then quickly engaged us in completing a relevant activity to experience, and apply whatever skill she was trying to teach. The group sessions, coupled with her individual calls and consulting meetings, served to tie it all together for us at CYHS.

—Cindy Gavilsky, Coordinated Youth and Human Services
