OTHER PAST CONFERENCES

A New World for Nonprofit Communications

April 22, 2022 | USA

Ye olde communication styles have stopped working. Donors are not interested in being sold, talked to, or lectured. Instead, donors trust and seek information from their peers, friends, and social networks. Donors want to engage in conversations and collaboration to advance causes they care about. What can we learn from science about (re-)building trust? How should we best invest our time and resources? Finally, how do we get other people (leadership, marketing colleagues) in our organization to engage with these new ways of thinking about communication? Participants will have an opportunity to share their own insights through Lightning Round presentations and breakout rooms in a guided conversation with Dr. Russell James. This session is part of the '22 Donor Participation Project Conference. It will be held on Zoom with automated captioning. The cost is $160 for the entire conference (four 2-hour fascinating sessions) or $60 per session.
