What people say about Olga and Private Goodness
Olga delivered 'Climate Change for Grantmakers and Grantseekers' on 18 December 2023. This online training was extremely useful and well delivered. I have come away with new knowledge and ideas about how to integrate key information into both everyday conversations with grantmakers as well as future broader training about how to do grantmaking well.'
- Gemma Bull, Director of Modern Grantmaking
'Olga delivered great Environmental training for me at a time when our organisation was expanding and looking into more environmental policies and our approach. Olga provided very holistic training and delivered content which I have never seen or heard before in climate conversations. Her connections with the environment, climate change and social justice were very insightful.
I'd recommend Olga, her training and her helpfulness to other individuals and organisations getting started in their climate journey.'
- Emma Sithole, Founder of Be United
'Olga presented a really clear presentation on the climate crisis - making simple, what can sometimes feel like a very complex and over-whelming area for discussion - talking through the causes and solutions and how different human choices can really make a difference. It has helped bring this agenda further forward for me personally and also helped me think a bit more about how I can bring this aspect more centre stage in my work as a trustee. Thank you Olga. If this is the beginning of a journey for you - then Olga's 60/90 minute presentation is a really good place to start!'
