Inspiring digital business leader and non-profit startup expert, Makarand Utpat encourages mindfully developing and continually maintaining trust in the nonprofit organization.

Monmouth County, New Jersey – September 28, 2016— Makarand Utpat, non-profit startup expert and inspirational business leader, has posted a new blog on his company website entitled, Instill Your Nonprofit with the DNA of Trust, in which Mr. Utpat offers several approaches to building trust.

Utpat writes, “Trust is the fundamental building block of developing strong relationships. And, in upstart and mature nonprofit organizations alike, trust must be the very essence and lifeblood of the group’s DNA.” He continues adding, “Nonprofits are all about doing something meaningful and good. They are mostly kept alive by the goodness of people who volunteer their time and resources.”

Utpat shares, “One quote that continues to inspire me, and those I work with, to mindfully develop and maintain an environment of trust is from the brilliant, late Maya Angelou. She said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” When you make people feel confident, trusted and that they are an integral part of something bigger than themselves, they will never forget it.”

According to Utpat, “Building trust comes naturally to some people. However, it is also a value that can continuously be developed and refined”
