With a Master's Degree in communications and nonprofit management, a professional Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), and over 20 years of professional experience as a nonprofit President/CEO, foundation President/CEO and association President, Kimberly Brock is a proven leader in the nonprofit space. Her range of skills make possible the unique ability to translate innovative business solutions and philanthropic principals into maximum revenue and impact.
As a leader and advocate in the movement to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of local nonprofits, Brock's visionary ideas and blunt assessments challenge the time-worn constraints of nonprofit thinking. Each initiative Brock has had the privilege to work on has helped her earn a reputation for consistently leading organizations into a new season of exceptional growth and impact.
With a continuous appetite for positive change, Brock sees great opportunity to assist the sector by focusing on solutions to the lack of information sharing among nonprofits, the unnecessary and unintentional waste of both human and financial capital and the influencing of various, and often opposing, interests of multiple stakeholder groups. Although knowledgeable and sympathetic to the unique (and often overwhelming) challenges faced daily by nonprofit leadership, Brock believes they must find the desire and courage to challenge the established norms and engage in often unpopular dialogue in order to create a fresh and efficient environment in which to flourish.
This blog was developed to explore new ideas, share resources developed from innovative research and advocate on the importance of philanthropic change. Most importantly, however, Brock hopes to inspire meaningful dialog and gain invaluable input from people with different sets of experiences to draw from.
Please consider adding to blog posts through your mindful comments, or reach out to Brock directly if you have a topic you would like to write about or see included. If you would like credit for your comments or ideas, simply include your name and email or website at the bottom of your comment. Both positive and constructive comments are equally appreciated, as they each will facilitate more in-depth discussions.

Kimberly fully understands what businesses need to be successful. She is adept at the technical side of a business: income statements, cash flows, balance sheets, expense controls, etc. At the same time, she is an outstanding marketing person. She relates to and understands people - how to motivate them, how to make them feel important and want to excel at their position and how to effectively reach her targeted audiences with messages that resonate with them.
Mayor of Lakeland, Florida and Owner of Bagley Advertising
Kim has proven leadership skills and a gracious personality. I have known and worked with Kim on both nonprofit ventures and corporate issues, both of which she has shown the rare ability to get things accomplished.
President & CEO, Allen & Company
Kim Brock is an outstanding, honest, creative and attractive young woman who consistently thinks of every solution to a problem or situation, which is a rare quality. And this is whether it's a financial recommendation or decision (saving the company money) or regarding company personnel where she has to make difficult decisions that are best for the company.
Kim is a fair and wise worker but can operate just as well as a leader. She also listens carefully to whoever she is talking to. Kim makes the effort and tries and usually succeeds.
I've run a production company for The Discovery Channel producing 200 plus programs with 24 employees, been a marketing director for three major companies and an asst. mke dir for a Fortune 500 Co. so I most likely know what I'm talking about. Because of this I'm often asked for recommendations but unfortunately can recommend only those I believe in, only the best, only those I trust and only those I know will do a good and sincere job wherever they land.

It is my pleasure to endorse Kimberly Brock as an outstanding professional. I worked with Kim for 6 years and have known her for 14 years, and the best way to describe her is "The Best Of The Best". Kim is detailed oriented, thorough, accurate, and has excellent leadership skills. She is gracious towards her subordinates, and highly gifted in bringing others along and making them feel their contributions are invaluable.
