Inspiring A World of Fresh Ideas

Learn, laugh and get motivated!

How do you like to learn? Most adults hate sitting still for hours listening to someone drone on and on. That’s why I engage audiences with interactive exercises, humor, and inspiration.

If you’re looking to amp up your next event with practical content (that every fundraiser should master), delivered in a memorable format that attendees will love, book me as a speaker for your next conference or workshop.

I often hear “that was the BEST session of the whole conference!” or “Wow, I can’t believe how fast the time flew by!” That means people are engaged in learning.

And growing your skills is the #1 way to raise more money for your small nonprofit.

Because I’m a teacher at heart, there is nothing that gets me energized more than being in front of a room, getting people excited, sparking their creativity and seeing that transformation when they just “get it.”

Whether you need a keynote to rock the house, a breakout session full of tips, ideas and takeaways, or a webinar customized for your group — I deliver proven and practical content plus insightful (and action-oriented) exercises.

Happy People Say…

“Sandy provided an informative, energetic and practical fundraising planning clinic for a very diverse group of organizational teams. Each member of our team walked away with tangible action steps to implement a successful fundraising plan. Sandy rocks!”

Danielle Clore, Executive Director,
Kentucky Nonprofit Network

“Nothing can be as dry as a workshop on ethics in fundraising, right? We found out that’s not always the case. Sandy’s presentation on Mastering Ethics in Fundraising was not only informative and thought-provoking, it was also highly entertaining. Who would’ve thought a presentation ethics could be so fun?!”

Paul Bowman President, AFP,
Great Smoky Mountains Chapter

“At the Best Friends Conference, I was seriously dreading the “board talk” and wishing I could go to a fun animal behavior session instead. In the first two minutes, you changed my mind! You breathed new life into me (and as a result, to my organization). When I walked out of that room, I knew I wanted all our board members to have the Sandy Reese experience!”

Requi Salter, Board Member,
Humane Society of Southeast Missouri
