"No nonprofit executive should be without a copy of this book on their desk. It represents the end of having to wing it when it comes to managing your investment in a consultant. You, your consultants and the results of your relationships will all be the better for the practical, insightful framework Penelope has put together here. And the scope of it is impressive, covering fundraising, marketing, governance, management and even international consulting. Say goodbye to the confusion that has typically surrounded this whole arena. Should you hire a consultant? You'll know after reading this great contribution to the field. Nothing like it has ever been compiled before."

"I started consulting to nonprofits back in the 1980's. If only I had this very useful book back then! It is filled with valuable insights and how-tos - a terrific resource for the field."

"I often hear from career-changing marketing, operations, and management professionals from the corporate world who are interested in consulting for the "good guys" — nonprofits — as they seek more meaning in their own lives and careers. I will direct every one of them to Nonprofit Consulting Essentials for a real-world assessment of both the benefits and potential pitfalls of becoming a nonprofit consultant. While some corporate skills are transferable, the nonprofit sector has its own unique rewards and challenges, which Penelope Cagney describes well in this book."
—Kivi Leroux Miller, nonprofit board member, consultant, and author of The Nonprofit Marketing Guide: High-Impact, Low-Cost Ways to Build Support for Your Good Cause
