Grayce Belvedere Young, MA, MBA
Twenty-five years of organization development and strategic planning make Grayce a veteran. She loves making organizations work better—whether it’s developing team members, implementing change or making boards more effective.
She’s deeply rooted in the Twin Cities community, including serving as trustee for Gustavus Adolphus College and the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota, and board member for Cultural Jambalaya, M.A.P. for Nonprofits, Twin Cities ASTD chapter, among others.

David Chapman, PSYD
With more than three decades of experience in executive leadership, David knows people and organizations. He’s got a doctorate in psychology—and a master’s degree in theology for good measure—so he understands the human dynamics at play in every organization.
David helped build the MBA and International Management graduate program at St. Thomas. He’s coached entrepreneurs and executives across industries in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He served as dean to over 14,000 students and regularly serves on nonprofit boards.
So it’s fair to say David knows good leadership. And like a good Minnesotan, Dave loves fishing and hockey.
