This year I had the opportunity to attend the Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits. It featured amazing speakers and great presentations. Below are the 5 presentations that all nonprofit chief executives should watch. From Beth Kanter and Alison Fine, authors of The Networked Nonprofit, and Holly Ross, Executive Director of NTEN, to Matthew Mahan, Vice President of impact at causes, and Karen Kenelly, President of K-squared. These presentations are packed with quick do-it-yourself ideas and best techniques to leverage the power of social media to advance the mission of your nonprofit.
Unfortunately, some great presentations — like Founder of Big Duck Sarah Durham’s presentation on brandraising and Melanie Mathos and Chad Norman’s outstanding presentation on “50 More Social Media Tactics” — were not recorded. But don’t despair. I will be writing about these presentations here. So check back soon to get tips, strategies and how-to’s from industry leaders and experts.
