Toby M.

Volunteer

Worked for the past 12 years in marketing, advertising, budget management, branding and market research, primarily in the non-profit field. Looking to volunteer my professional skills to organisations across Philadelphia and help the city and its people grow.

What did Toby have to offer?

I have been looking to get involved in a project that ultimately helps to improve quality of life and opportunity in Philadelphia. I think The Monkey and the Elephant is a fantastic initiative to not only fundraise for a great cause, but provide the aged out foster kids with a chance to develop real life skills and have place to come together as a community. I strongly believe education is the great equalizer, and so too are opportunities to rely on a groups of friends and mentors for support as kids move into the workforce. I've worked in live entertainment, museums and destination marketing, always working to bring people to a particular locale for a particular reason. My biggest professional pet peeve are self-professed "ideas people" who have no interest in providing at least guidance as to how an idea might be implemented. I have always worked at the strategy level, moving ideas through various iterations as I gather different opinions from all experience levels and backgrounds. I then either see the idea through to the end, or give the team a blueprint to help with implementation.
