FIVE GOOD IDEAS ABOUT RUNNING EFFECTIVE MEETINGS
JANUARY 22, 2019, 12:00 pm
Life’s too short for boring, unproductive meetings. Yet that’s precisely where many of us spend too much of our time. We know that working together is a good and necessary thing, but we also know that getting the right combination of people in a room together (or in a virtual space – even worse…) is not enough to ensure effective collaboration. Join Certified Professional Facilitator Dr. Rebecca Sutherns for Five Good Ideas on how to run meetings that are purposeful and engaging. Learn how to create the conditions that can transform time wasted as a group into time well spent.
DAN PALLOTTA: UNCHARITABLE
JANUARY 30, 2019, 8:45 am
Completely revised and updated. A live talk via interactive remote video. You’ve watched his TED Talks. You’ve read his books. Now you can see Dan Pallotta live in Burlington via interactive remote video as he shares his completely revised and updated TED Talk, Uncharitable. This live talk will be an immersion in the issues opened in his iconic TED talk but goes much further in-depth than an 18-minute talk ever could. Dan will advance your understanding and literacy about critical issues in the non-profit sector. He will share new data, critics’ reactions to his TED Talk, his rebuttals, and more importantly, solutions for how we as fundraisers can talk about these important issues with donors. This event is a must-attend for all fundraisers, board members, non-profit staff and donors. Two-way video technology will allow attendees the opportunity to experience Dan’s unique ability to inspire passionate and ambitious non-profit leaders. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see and speak with one of the world’s most outspoken and passionate humanitarian activists.
