Robert EggerAs founder of the DC Central Kitchen, Robert Egger has spent the better part of his career working to change the way nonprofits work. The job of soup kitchens, and community food banks has always been seen as noble work, but Egger contends that the work can be done more professionally, and that failing non-profits might have to go the way of commercial businesses that aren't well run. Egger was recently in West Hartford, speaking at Saint Joseph College - and for the United Way. We talked about some of the ideas from his book: Begging for Change, the dollars and sense of making Nonprofits Responsive, Efficient and Rewarding for all.
