From Tampa Bay to Singapore, SVP’s Executive Connector, Paul Shoemaker is making waves in the philanthropic media and challenging those in the social sector through a growing speaking circuit. Check out the highlights below.
Inside Philanthropy recently published: Manifesto Watch: This Fed Up Funder Totally Nails How His Own Sector Needs to Change. The author, David Callahan writes: “If you want a clear and concise blueprint for overhauling philanthropy, here it is—presented with barely suppressed rage.” He also provides excellent CliffNotes for Paul’s full essay: Reconstructing Philanthropy from the Outside In.
