Participant will learn exciting, innovative strategies for sustaining marriage strengthening efforts into the future - with or without grants. Who, when, and how to ask and creative, cost-effective messages to transform your community.

We've got the information – we know how to strengthen marriages and reduce divorce and family breakdown. Our challenge, now, is to get the information out there, which means our biggest challenges are actually fundraising and marketing. This is your chance to learn from the pros –  First Things First has got it going on and Howard Marshall is a giant in his field. They will make this tough topic fun - fill you up and send you home eager to get started. The only complaint will be that it should have been three days, not just one. Do not miss this one!

Marshall Howard is an attorney, former television network executive, teacher,
and sales and marketing consultant. In the early 1980s, he founded Marshall Howard
& Associates and Golf West. The goal was to combine an ongoing, collaborative
relationship-building program with a fundraising or customer appreciation event.
Marshall quickly discovered the single biggest reason why most organizations experience
continuous growth: their ability to build and maintain strong collaborative relationships,
both internally and externally. After 20 years of relationship development with nonprofits
and corporations, big and small, nationwide, Marshall decided to make a greater impact,
by writing his now nationally acclaimed bestseller, "Let's Have Lunch Together." Today,
his work focuses on teaching his collaborative relationship-building process. Just as in his
book, publications, speeches, and training courses present practical, real-world solutions
to the challenges facing organizations today. Marshall's programs show you how to use the
power of collaborative relationships to: build capacity, grow your business, foster climates
of motivation, increase customer commitment, build organizational unity, build stronger
teams, produce greater community impact, overcome unique management challenges,
and make work and life more rewarding.
