What I like about Jackson is how he is able to contextualize his expertise in fundraising and organizational development. What he does works. But more important to me, what he does works in my context. He is able to explain things so clearly anyone can understand. He is honest, direct and inspiring. I look forward to our continued association for even more spectacular results."
