My last (and perhaps final?) job was my first in the non-profit sector. I’d always worked in marketing
and advertising, so it was a little difficult for me to understand the dynamics of philanthropy.
I came across Dan Pallotta somewhere in my searching, and when I read that he started the AIDS bike rides
and the breast cancer walks, I was interested. Then I read him and became a total fan.
I think he has the best insights into the non-profit sector of anyone,but his recent blog post
for the Harvard Business Review is about workers over 50. What he says makes so much sense – and since
I’ve got 15 years on him it made me feel even better. Maybe, you will like it, too.
