Testimonials

Leeza Gibbons, Founder & CEO, Leeza’s Care Connection

“A kind collaborator with great instincts, Abbe’s skills as a business leader are surpassed only by her rock-solid relationships. We loved her optimistic outlook and tireless energy”

Jennifer Gregg, Executive Director, ONE Archives Foundation:

Working with Abbe Land helped me to discover my leadership potential l and vastly increase my public speaking skills.

As an Executive Director transitioning from a small non-profit organization to a larger institution, it was important for me to develop my role as a visionary and strategic leader, while also strengthening our organizational fundraising capacity and infrastructure. Abbe provided me with hands-on training and helped me learn how to organize and structure my priorities and focus to be successful. She provided guidance around board management and staff development issues.

As an added bonus, Abbe is a fantastic speech coach! She worked with me through a variety of speech exercise to reveal my primary speaking style and helped me gain confidence as a public speaker, which is vital to my current role. Since working with Abbe, we have increased our fundraising and really shifted the culture of our organization to increase our programmatic capacity.

Abby Leibman, President & CEO MAZON | A Jewish Response to Hunger:

We engaged Abbe to plan and implement a time management seminar for our entire staff. She developed a program that reflected our specific needs and culture and facilitated a very productive multi-hour discussion, navigating through the diverse needs our staff brought to the table and concluding with invaluable steps for moving forward.

Tony Valenzuela, Executive Director, Lambda Literary:

Abbe’s long and distinguished history of leadership in nonprofits and government makes her a natural at group facilitation. She has brought her considerable strengths to the Los Angeles LGBT Executive Director’s support group where a couple dozen of LA’s nonprofit CEO’s meet to discuss organizational challenges and share professional advice. As a member of the group, I’ve found Abbe’s steady and insightful facilitation to be a tremendous help to leaders navigating the ups and downs we face running our organizations. And, importantly, she does this work with a great sense of humor and warmth.
