About your presenter
Dean is a SCORE Columbus volunteer and was raised with small town, mid-western values, my life has revolved around family, neighbors & colleagues and career; a career that began and continues today to focus upon achieving nonprofit organization success. Together with my wife of 50+ years, this career has been lived out across 5 different states and in progressively more expansive & challenging leadership duties, all the while growing our family of 7 children [4-bio; 3-adopted] that now includes 12 grandchildren! Those career challenges exposed me to a broad range of nonprofit governance, compliance, management, accounting/cash-flow, fundraising and operational insights, which required an expansive array of skills & expertise to address. I learned much of what I needed through a network of mentors & colleagues from across the country. Today, operating The Pulliam Group, LLC [a consulting firm serving nonprofit ventures] allows me to share these lessons & insights, "paying-it-forward" so leaders now experiencing, or working to avoid, similar challenges at nonprofit organizations can experience successful outcomes.
