It has been a crazy few months. I've left a job and an organization that I love (my position is now posted if you'd like one of the best jobs in Minnesota philanthropy) to become the new President of the Minnesota Council on Foundations. I am a few weeks into the job and am really enjoying meeting MCF's members, getting to know my board, and working with a great team of people who are committed to making philanthropy more effective and impact issues critical to Minnesota's future.
As part of the new gig, I have been doing a lot of media interviews including this piece at Insight News (the title Profiles in Excellence is a pretty high bar to live up to when you are first starting a job) and a really fun conversation on Minnesota Public Radio's Daily Circuit with Lou Bellamy of Penumbra Theater and Bill George the former CEO of Medtronic (that's us in the picture above with the host Kerri Miller) about what made us the leaders that we are today. You can hear the audio here.
