What’s a Gift Economy? A gift economy is a mode of exchange where valuables are not traded or sold, but rather given without an explicit agreement for immediate or future rewards. This contrasts with a market economy, where goods and services are primarily exchanged for value received.

Especially for individuals committed to, or entering into, the nonprofit sector, I am delighted to give.
Nonprofit Executive Search. I have over 10 years of experience working as a recruiter with a NYC based executive search consulting firm that serves the nonprofit sector. I have reviewed thousands of resumes, interviewed hundreds of candidates, and worked with dozens of Boards of Directors in the executive search process. I have a keen understanding of candidate selection and development, and a strong track-record of helping prospective candidates to gain clarity in their job search so they can position themselves most favorably in their career transition.
“In great teams conflict becomes productive. The free flow of conflicting ideas is critical for creative thinking, for discovering new solutions no one individual would have come to on his own.” —-Peter Senge
