Al Pittampalli’s presentation at our 49th International Conference on Fundraising was a forceful message about how we as leaders should use meetings to deliver organizational decisions and actions with the greatest impact. We’d have Al back in a heartbeat.
— Andrew Watt, Association of Fundraising Professionals
Our members were fascinated by Al’s unique insights … at the end of his talk, he was swarmed with members eager to learn more and spend a few more minutes with such an exciting thinker. It was difficult to tear them away, as no one wanted the event to end. It was truly an unforgettable night.

One of my favorite presentations this year. Persuadable is full of interesting insights, the observations seem counter-intuitive and yet are laid out in a compelling and completely rational way. It doesn’t hurt that Al is super charming, knowledgeable and a great speaker. I look forward to his future effort
