I am a member of the St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church Capital Fund Drive Committee. This is my personal observation re. the benefits our committee and drive have received from our relationship with the consultant.
From the first presentation by Klote, we knew a fund drive was not a DIY project (we’d already tried that). Getting expert help, devoted solely to our success, was going to be essential.
Klote wisely sent us our consultant. His experience, insight and optimism in what many thought impossible has steered us to success. Our consultant was quick to develop a team who under his methodical and masterful direction became convinced we could produce the product. He quickly assessed and sorted the skills of our team members — we grew (personally and collectively) through his confidence in our abilities. The result was a product greater than the sum of the parts.
The methodical/consistent “Klote Process” kept us on track and informed at every juncture. Calm and steady in approach, our consultant offered superior insight, listened with enthusiasm and was respectful of our time and ideas. We are going to be successful!
