What People are Saying
"Ted Edlich has been extremely helpful to our young nonprofit organization, Children’s Assistive Technology Service. His seminar on nonprofit management seminar presented at a local SCORE meeting was on target for a new nonprofit suffering from growing pains.
In subsequent meetings, Mr. Edlich provided pointed advice from his own experience which has turned out to be essential for us. As a result we have worked hard on board engagement, exploration of resource development, grant writing, budget development and resource allocation, and expansion of a communications platform. We have expanded collaboration with other organizations. He warned us about the difficulties of nonprofit management yet encouraged us to be fearless in pursuit of our mission. It’s a wild ride! Edlich's book, Navigating the Nonprofit Rapids: Strategies and Tactics for Running a Nonprofit Company, is a clear and insightful read on the subject which in addition to other volumes from his reading list has been both helpful and inspirational."

I enjoyed the insights to leadership, non-profit leadership in particular, that Ted Edlich provided in a recent advance leadership course at TAP. He provided activities that were engaging, inspiring, and beneficial to my leadership development. Mr. Edlich allowed us to engage in real conversations concerning creating a culture conducive to leadership development and that was mission centric. The instructions were practical and applicable to leadership in a non-profit organization.
Ted brings to our Board of directors the perspective of a non-profit leader. This is extremely important because all of our board members have a business, government or education background. Ted understands the differences between a business and non-profit environment.
One unique attribute of Ted is his vast experience in running a non-profit and his understanding of the business side of an organization. Ted has a good knowledge of financial matters, personal issues and general management. He does not hold back his thoughts and concerns during a board meeting. He presents his ideas in a very logical manner. When Ted undertakes a project/issue he is fully committed. Not simply offering advice during a meeting, but taking the time to follow up after the meeting or whenever a useful thoughts comes to him.
Ted’s book, Navigating the Non-Profit Rapids, has been helpful to me as the new board president. The chapter outlining board’s role and responsibilities has been particularly enlightening. I would highly recommend it to any person involved on a board of a nonprofit organization.
If the opportunity presents itself, Ted’s advice and council would be helpful to any organization.
