“When Ken first told me about Empowerment Dialogue, I knew he had created something special. But, it wasn't until I attended the full-day training session that I realized the incredible strength of the Empowerment Dialogue method. Quite simply Ken has created a structured way to speak with donors and build strong philanthropic relationships. Empowerment Dialogue is simply amazing. I would highly recommend it to any fundraising professional."
Mikhael Bornstein, Associate Director of Philanthropy, Ecojustice Canada
"Janice, The feedback I’ve received has been very positive, with some participants phoning me afterward to tell me how valuable the training was for them. Excellent job! Thank you so much."

“My role as a financial advisor specializing in gift planning is to assist my clients in realizing their philanthropic vision. The Empowerment Dialogue Program provides a unique way to talk about philanthropy and have a meaningful conversation with the donor. The step-by-step approach helps the donor clarifying her or his vision and facilitates the decision-making process.”
Martin Goulet, Financial Planner
The Empowerment Dialogue Program was a great training opportunity for the staff and some of our board members. It also provided great exposure to Planned Giving for the organization.

The Empowerment Dialogue Program is invaluable in training our volunteer leadership council to have the intentional conversations that they need for very successful cultivation. The Program gave our great team the tools to create stronger relationships and identify new major donors.

The opportunity to strategize on various donor situations, and to hear how other fundraising colleagues were approaching these types of conversations, as well as some of Ken's and Janice's advice, was most helpful.
