Regarding Testimonials, how should I go about achieving them in the first place? Do I straight-up ask the director/whoever for one? Or do I wait for them to say something? eh? Eh? EH? EH!?!?

Befriend his wife?
That's just silly the director might be a female with a wife? Then again...

Get them from public reviews, or public sayings of the director/client.

Both it depends on the kind of rapport you have with the client. Judge the situation and if you think asking straight out will be accepable then go for it.

What if she says "Wow, the way you do blablablabla and blablabla" could I alter it (with permission) so it says "Wow, the way Phillip does blablablabla and blablabla"?

If it were me, I'd approach this two ways.
A: Ask those directors that you know well enough, and who enjoyed working with you (and vice versa), for a testimonial. They can write it themselves.
----There's nothing wrong with doing that. I was asked to provide a testimonial for a company that was looking to be considered for non-profit status. Just be clear about what you're looking for; whether it be a page, a paragraph, or a short sentence or two.
B: Find quotes from public reviews that are out there for anyone to see.
Unless you have some press, B is much more difficult, so A is the way to go. Chances are you won't remember exactly what someone says to you, unless you record them (and you shouldn't do that), so waiting for someone to say something nice isn't the way to go about it. So, best course of action is to always ask, and ask permission.

I don't understand why it would be so awkward. If you want one just ask for it. If a client asked you for one would it be a bother?
