What did Jon have to offer?

I'm passionate about global challenges, particularly in energy, education and healthcare. I also seek to align with impactful organizations in other domains. Great values, vision and mission are necessary but not sufficient. An effective and fully-functioning governance board is a critical component, as well. If I could help in a small way to propel The African Soup to a higher level of excellence, I would be delighted! My particular focus is on organizational governance and how best to align stakeholders toward a common purpose. I have spent much of my career building organizations from the ground up. I am currently vice chair of United World College USA and permanent proxy chair to the UWC International movement. As former head of the governance committee, I have spent a great deal of time thinking about and implementing processes around how best to build an effective, committed board. We can explore together the pros and cons of various board assessment tools.

Jon was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable! He helped me complete a board assessment that will increase our productivity and financial sustainability. He was also very responsive!
