For the past eight years, Korngold Consulting has provided NGO/nonprofit board training services for executives and professionals of leading corporations and financial and consulting firms; trained and placed business executives and professionals on NGO/nonprofit boards; and consulted to NGO/nonprofit boards and CEOs to help advance organizations strategically and financially.
On January 11, 2013, Korngold Consulting launched the Board Leadership Academy with its inaugural program for NGO/nonprofit CEOs, board chairs and chairs-elect, heads of corporate foundations who are responsible for board-matching at their companies, and business executives considering their first, second, or third NGO/nonprofit boards. The Nonprofit Finance Fund participated in the inaugural program as did the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy. The Board Leadership Academy will present additional programs in partnership with NGOs/nonprofits and corporations.

“This seminar highlighted the fact that adding value to an organization as a board member is a distinct skill set that requires thought and development. It is rare that you find a discussion that can catalyze this development in a material way. In retrospect, it should not be surprising given the incredible level of breadth and depth of experience in the room. [The Seminar] felt like it was designed for people who care about the fundamentals of building something special.”

“Alice’s program was fantastic on so many levels: I learned about what I was looking for in a board and connected with a slew of great people, both those who run organizations looking for board members and who are board members themselves. The networking alone would have been worth the investment, but the insight and expertise Alice provided pushed the program over the top. She’s down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and full of energy. And she has this unique ability to take what could be a very scary process and make it easy and fun.”

"Korngold Consulting’s Global Board Leadership Academy brought together a diverse group of business and non-profit leaders to engage with non-profit board governance experts in a rich dialogue regarding maximizing non-profit board effectiveness. Alice assembled a dynamic group of speakers, drawing upon her vast expertise and infusing the program with relevant learning for experienced board members and board members-to-be alike.
The program expertly blended speaker presentations, practical tools and substantive discussion regarding how business leaders can more effectively navigate the non-profit board service landscape and increase the value of individual participation and organizational impact."

"The expertise, engagement, and energy of all of the 2013 Global Board Leadership Academy participants was extraordinary. A complement to my own experience with Korngold Consulting over the past four years: always strategic, always mission-driven on both sides of the equation (the nonprofit’s goals, the board prospect’s own goals), and always a pleasure."
