Penelope Burk, was THE best speaker that I’ve heard in several years...and she was also among the top 10 in my long and varied history as an audience member who has listened to many, many speakers. The content of her talk was specific, interesting, and compelling; her presentation style was entertaining and the organization of her material was superior. As well, her personality really connected her to the delegates in the room. In short, this program was wasaaaaaay over a '10.'

Penelope is the only presenter with empirical data and her information blows the lid off our preconceived ideas about how we can fundraise successfully.

Penelope Burk is a dynamic speaker. I enjoyed this seminar very much and learned more about what donors want in one day than in the five years I have worked in development – awesome!

After 10 years of attending conferences and seminars, I had no idea that research of this magnitude existed. I’ll be looking to Penelope Burk and Cygnus Applied Research for new ideas in the years to come.
