Knowledge Philanthropy Spotlight

“Cheryle is an incredible facilitator who can skillfully bring out enriched discussion from the group. Her extensive experience in the sector, her passion and her genuine curiosity really set her apart.”

Cheryle Beaumont first brought her time and talent to Vantage Point’s Governance Lab in 2012, after a long career in public education. Joining us as the facilitator for Governance Lab, Cheryle advised on the program’s content and approach, delivered the program curriculum and facilitated the shared learning experience among executive directors, board chairs and vice chairs. When asked why she got involved with Vantage Point, Cheryle says, “I was interested in using my experience – from both sides of the boardroom table – to continue my own learning while supporting boards to better serve their communities.”

Since then, Cheryle has become one of our facilitation superstars, working with over 80 not-for-profit leaders through Governance Lab, Critical Role of the Board Chair workshops, Fierce Conversations workshops and Strategic Planning.

When asked where she finds meaning from her engagement, Cheryle says, “There is ongoing development for me as I learn about the diverse ways that our communities are served by volunteers – and how our communities can be best served by the talent out there! Seeing individuals and whole organizations work on their skills is very gratifying.”

If she could offer one piece of advice to leaders looking to engage a knowledge philanthropist, it would be to embrace the breadth of expertise available to your organization. "Everyone brings something different to the table. With adequate support and leadership, your organization can unlock unlimited potential."
