Women of Excellence

Bill, I am so proud of you. You have been a blessing to Women of Excellence, therefore keep up the good work.   

Mildred Kee, Executive Director 


Healthy Community Institute

After attending the Healthy Institute in Charlotte last week, feel compelled to let you know what an incredible experience it was. Have run the largest Jewish non-profit in the State and have never been exposed to anyone as knowledgeable as yourself.   Your presentations merit 5++ stars and both you and Mr. Cummings shared more   valuable information and working tools than I've ever seen during my 20 plus   years in the non-profit arena. I have every intention of informing my Board   of your excellence with the hope that they approve your hire to help us set   goals for our incoming new Chair. Again, tremendous experience. 


100 Black Men

I am a board member of  the 100 Black Men of Greater Charlotte, Inc. and attended the two-day Healthy   Community Institute retreat in Concord, North Carolina. I would like to thank   you for delivering excellent presentations that were very engaging,   enlightening and inspiring. I admire your expertise.

A huge shout out to Bill Bennington our retreat facilitator for his willingness to facilitate this important process for us, his expertise, knowledge base, humor and hard work.  Bill, we thank you for caring so deeply for the work of nonprofits such as RCNC.  You are amazing!!! I’ll be in touch soon.

Dear Bill, this is what I would call a beautiful piece of work. I love how you captured so much input in this one document. Thank you. And my first reading shows me so many insights and suggestions that are relevant as we begin our work with you this Saturday. I can't thank you enough for this start that you've gotten us off to. 

Dear Bill, I love how you work. I find what you are sending us to be consistently clear, thorough, sensitive to our needs and prompt. Thank you so much for being an amazing Heart-to-Heart Resource. Gratefully,

William O’Dea

Executive Director

XLH Network

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Community Institute training in 2002 helped the staff and Board of the Women’s Resource Center move to the next level in their organizational journey.  It was a game changer.  I remember it as the “boot camp” for serious planning and goal setting.   It was the most practical training I ever attended. I appreciate your dedication to helping nonprofits operate as efficiently and effectively as possible.  Thank you for your willingness to work with us.  

Becky Mock, President

XLH Network, Inc.



Bill, I just got a call from Dan Rose. He is over the moon thrilled at the work you have done. It is exactly what he was hoping for, but even better than he could have expected!! He said First Rate and Masterful Report many times. Rose will call the foundation ED now and let him know how pleased he is with the work and encourage him to retain INPEx to help them going forward. Thank you for exceeding the expectations of this important client!!!!!!!!

From a Client of 20 Years Upon Her Retirement

Bill, I have always held a special place in my heart for you and Pam. When it comes to awesome people, you certainly take the cake! Words cannot describe how much I learned from working with you for all of these years. I am honored to be associated with you; what a lucky person I am. I wish you all wonderful things in life, Bill; if anyone deserves it, it is you and Pam. You are just awesome; I think that says it all. 


From a CEO/Client Following an Analysis of His Performance and Style

Bill, I read your piece several times. Thank you taking the time to produce this; it’s extremely valuable to me. I would like to talk to you about formally serving as my executive coach, especially on board communication and reporting matters. I don’t always gauge when to let go of the right thing for the political thing; this has plagued me my entire work life.
