AUSTIN, TX, February 15, 2011 — In the spirit of love and Valentine’s Day, Beverly Chasse, president and CEO of Chasse Consulting Sales Strategies Inc., served as master of ceremonies for Austin-local Manos de Cristo’s 2011 All You Need is Love Gala, helping to raise funds for the non-profit’s efforts to provide the central Texas area with a safe place for the homeless and working poor of Austin to come for emergency food and clothing, oral health care and education.
“Your money is more than school supplies…it’s more than a bag of groceries… it’s more than free dental services,” said Chasse in her opening speech. “…it is about eliminating the judgment and social stigma wrapped around how we look verses how good our soul is…[so] trust in the knowledge [that] you [will] contribute to saving lives. Those thinking about giving, please do. We need you.”
And indeed the group gave, as the night’s 194 attendees were able to raise more funds than last year.
That gala, in its sixth year, was held at the Renaissance Austin hotel Saturday, February 12. An auction was accompanied with live music and dancing by The Pictures, an Austin-based cover band.
Chasse Consulting has been an active supporter of Manos’ charity efforts in recent years, participating annually in its back to school events. CEO Beverly Chasse sits on the Manos board of directors as its developmental chair and was honored last December for her volunteer work. Plans in 2011 involve expanding the non-profit’s charitable initiatives and growing local involvement.
“There is a saying: We are all angels with just one wing, and when we embrace each other, we can fly,” said Chasse in the closing remarks of her speech. “And this is why we need you…Manos is an angel with just one wing, and with your embrace, Manos is an organization that will fly.”

Beverly Chasse, President and CEO:
Beginning in 2002, Beverly Chasse combined her 25 years of leadership and sales management experience with her goal to change organizations’ sales strategies to create her own company, Chasse Consulting: Sales Strategies, Inc. Seven years later Chasse has transformed the way Fortune 500 organizations sell. The mission is cutting-edge, yet clear cut—help organizations strategically improve their sales performance, revenue stream, and productivity in today’s competitive and fast paced marketplace. Because of her hard work and dedication to the field, Chasse has earned the designation as one of the most effective sales strategy consultants in the industry. However, even with her busy schedule, Chasse makes it a priority to reach out to those less fortunate. She volunteers countless hours of her own time to non-profit organizations not only in the Austin community, but around the world. This has included trips to Africa to work with local villages and underprivileged children there. She also serves as a board member for both the Manos de Cristo and ventured on goodwill missions overseas to provide instruction on effective business skills and good practices, proving once again that she is a true leader in the Austin community. In addition, each year Chasse commits part of her company’s profits to children’s charitable organizations, so that every child in poverty can have a better chance of defying the odds and overcoming life’s challenges.
