After 20 years of developing successful marketing communications programs for Fortune 500 clients like Westin Hotels, Hewlett- Packard and Apple, Bill Toliver has spent the last several years bringing non-traditional thinking to organizations involved in social change.
As executive director of The Matale Line, Toliver has helped a number of national and international nonprofits, foundations and NGOs—from UNICEF to the Oprah Winfrey Foundations —reframe their approach to strategic decision-making and communications.
Toliver has a reputation for helping organizations undergo a lasting form of self-reflection that can be used to improve branding, strategic planning, communications and fundraising. His expertise and intimate understanding of social issues stems from growing up in the developing world. By the age of 18, he had traveled to more than 30 countries.
As inspirational as he is provocative, Toliver has had the opportunity to deliver keynotes and seminars to a range of leaders and agents of change—among them, National Council of Nonprofit Associations, United Way of America, The Netherlands Development Organisation, Der Deutsche Fundraising Kongress, and Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
