In addition to being well on my way to completing my book (I’d say 70% complete) and an album of original songs (60% complete), I am in early stage development of a documentary film that I will share more about if you would like to learn more about it. These intellectual properties will be produced and distributed under the Triumphé Media Group brand, the name I have chosen for my company.

I have made what I believe is a very good start on articulating a compelling vision for Triumphé Media Group. This is a life vision as opposed to a traditional business plan. I am now working on the tactical business development plan. To ensure that this plan is actionable and reflects the actions that are in alignment with my vision, I have engaged a business coach and have enrolled in a course specifically designed for social entrepreneurs to help me overcome obstacles and break through to success and profitability.

About mckinley

McKinley Williams has launched a new life purpose consultancy under the Dreams into Action brand, a Triumphé Media Group project. The dreamsintoaction.org website is currently being designed. The site is being conceived as a membership site to include free content, video interviews, an active blog, fee-based content and services, and will feature subject matter experts, noted authors, affiliates and sponsors. Williams’ overarching goal is to evolve a community (a movement) of individuals who inform each other, promote each other, and otherwise form a “tribe” of like-minded people who are transforming their lives by pursuing their dreams and realizing their personal visions of success. The Dreams into Action.org website (in development) will be a gathering place for this movement. As the site’s principal blogger, content curator and community host, Williams shares knowledge personally acquired over 30 years of engaging in the literature of career success strategies, creativity, transformational learning, personal development and conscious human evolution. With more than ten years of professional fundraising experience in senior management positions and more than thirty additional years of experience in business and industry, McKinley Williams is a respected leader with an outstanding record of achievement in connecting people and organizations to critical resources that strengthen their capacity to serve the public good. His extensive knowledge of philanthropy, the for-profit and not-for profit sectors and his grasp of some of the most complex challenges facing our civilization today, are powerful assets. Williams recently retired from his position as Development Director at OPCC (Ocean Park Community Center) where, for five years, he led and managed the organization’s private fundraising operations, which included cultivation and solicitation of corporate, foundation and individual donors, enlisting and nurturing board participation in donor identification and cultivation, coordination of special donor events, execution of successful communication strategies and participation in a full range of community engagement and development activities to ensure achievement of an annual private fundraising budget of $4 million. Before joining OPCC in March of 2007, Williams was formerly Director of Corporate and Foundation Giving at Washington D.C. based Whitman-Walker Clinic. In addition to his work with Whitman-Walker, Williams led and managed major gifts initiatives for the Urban League of Portland and has raised funds for several community-based organizations including Basic Rights Oregon, The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, The Oregon Trail Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Oregon Multimedia Alliance (Industry/Education Task Force) and the Rose Festival Association. Additionally, Williams has held management positions at The Casey Family Programs (Seattle-based private operating foundation), Xerox Corporation, Bank of America and Accelerated Learning Strategies. Williams is an alumnus of Occidental College, a prestigious private liberal arts college located in Los Angeles, where he remains very active as a member of the alumni association. Until recently he was a member of the President’s Circle and William Stewart Young Executive Committee of the college. His community involvement has also included the Los Angeles Area Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals where in 2010 he served as Vice-President of Philanthropy and Co-Chair of National Philanthropy Day, which is an annual celebration of philanthropy in the greater Los Angeles area.
