Mario Morino
Chairman at Venture Philanthropy Partners

“I first met Tom in the late ’90s when he was covering media and technology for several major publications. When he helped found Changing Our World, I followed his work closely there as well since his writing was balanced, credible, and useful in my own philanthropic work. His curiosity about the ways that social media and other new technologies can engage stakeholders is a real asset for clients and readers… and he never loses sight of the big picture.”

Chan Suh
CEO Broome Crosby Ltd

“Tom has always been a pioneer in the emerging trends of journalism, philanthropy and cultural trends. Starting in 1995 with @NY that helped to define digital journalism, through his years at Changing Our World when he became the go-to guy for fundraising and non-profit strategies, I’ve consulted Tom many times about both client and personal projects. He’s always been thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful and forthright.

“Now, at CauseWired, Tom is putting everything he’s done and learned into a potent package of advice, strategy, tactics and inspiration. I plan to continue consulting Tom every time I need help and guidance on non-profit management issues. I recommend Tom at the highest level.”
