Interview with Natalie Tessler
Natalie Tessler, Executive Director of Compass Pro Bono, explains how interested professionals can contribute their time and expertise to worthy non-profits organizations through Compass. Most non-profits operate on a shoestring, so the capability of Compass to bring highly skilled pro bono consulting resources to those non-profits is an extraordinary boon. Ms. Tessler explains how non-profits can apply for Compass services and how volunteers can offer their services. Compass enables a valuable service linking skilled professional with non-profits that need them.
Public Perspective, with host Kevin McDermott, serves up lively conversation each week with
intriguing guests from a wide range of backgrounds. The half-hour show covers politics,
the economy, business, and social issues with well known public voices and with unsung heroes.
Our guests have included such notables as: the President of the Cook County Board, the Editorial
Page Editor of the Chicago Tribune, the Mayor of Amman, Jordan, and a Nobel Prize nominee as well
as social activists, elected officials, and everyday citizens who have something to say, but whom
you won't see in the mainstream media.
Kevin and his staff draw on a wealth of varied experience in business and industry, entertainment,
religion, the arts, and civic organizations to ask the right questions and focus in on the most
interesting answers. The Public Perspective team brings you shows full of vibrant, entertaining
conversation that will make you think.
