About Susan Detwiler

Susan DetwilerWith 26 years in the for-profit world and 7 years  in the nonprofit sector, I see a lot of overlap…and several differences.  I’ve spent time working for divisions of large corporations and consulting to companies from start-ups to Fortune 500 leaders. I’ve been a researcher, a writer, a public speaker, a fundraiser, a marketer, a planner and an educator. I’ve managed paid staff, volunteers, and public perceptions. 

All these skills are needed by both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and I now consult to nonprofits in these areas as well as provide custom workshops.

More than 2000 years ago, the famous Rabbi Hillel said: If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when? 

The for-profit world thinks: If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

The not-for-profit world thinks: If I am only for myself, then what am I?

Now is when we will put these two together, and see how to learn from each other.

Hi Susan,

If I click on the notify box below, will I receive an email whenever something new is posted to your blog?

Notify box tells you when someone else comments. But the box on the side — takes you to a subscription page, where you just put in your email address and get new posts. Thanks for asking!
