Speaker: Hal Williams, Outcome Guide

Hal Williams, an Outcome Guide, will define and illustrate eight keys to getting paid for results and differentiating your services and compensation on that basis. Included are tools for using a consulting warranty to prompt result clarity and for moving from deliverables to client use of deliverables in consulting assignments.

Hal’s first experience with result based consulting was for the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation which was paying for many consultants to help nonprofits and then wondering why so many of the nonprofits still achieved the same results. He is currently working with the Community Foundation of the National Capital Region, Manatee County, Florida, and Seattle (WA) Parks and Recreation on structuring result based contracts for nonprofit consulting.

Hal Williams is a resource for foundations and nonprofit organizations that seek to define, track, verify, and communicate the results they achieve. His clients, for increasing results, include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, American Express, Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, and Verizon Foundation. He has worked with over 20 community foundations both small and large nationwide.

Much of Hal’s career focused on creating and leading The Rensselaerville Institute. The Institute is an internationally respected outcome center known as The Think Tank with Muddy Boots. Hal currently serves as Senior Fellow for The Institute.

He is lead author of Outcome Funding: a New Approach to Targeted Grantmaking. Now in its 4th edition, the book is widely used in the US and the UK as a framework for allocating and spending money to improve human lives and conditions. Hal co-founded, with his daughter Gillian, a national program called School Turnaround. This year that program includes a turnaround assignment with 20 underachieving schools in St. Louis, MO.

Hal has served as lead consultant to a U.S. Presidential Commission and consults directly with governors, corporate CEO’s, foundation directors, and other leaders. While an undergrad at Stanford University, he founded that school's FM radio station and served as West Coast Director of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System. His first job after college was as associate and then program director of The Aspen Institute.
