I learned tools that I think are invaluable and I cannot wait to bring this to our Board's sustainability group. Kishshana Palmer was a rockstar! Super engaging and a ton of great information to take in. Mazarine is just fabulous! I've seen some of the tools she showed before, but it was a kick to start really using these tools to streamline my everyday crazy schedule and really decide what was priority.

Some of this will (hopefully) help me really push our organization to developing a strong donor base that has been such a huge missed opportunity!

Building a Board You Love
Monday, September 24, 2018
8:15am-9:15am PT (11:15am-12:15pm ET)
No matter how many times you read about, talk about it and lament over it; building a board that understands how to govern and also wants  to champion your organization is no easy feat. As the chief executive, it can be frustrating, time consuming and soul sucking (if we're being honest).  But that ends today! It is possible to recruit a board that governs with joy, gives you space to lead and creates a lasting partnership that supports the growth and sustainability of your organization. 
 
In this session, you will learn:
--The Three Things You need to do as a Chief Executive to Build a Board You Love
--The Three Things Your board needs to do to feel successful
--What you can do right now to turn your board into ambassadors and your "bosses" into your partners

Live Into It: 3 Steps to Radical Living and Leadership for Audacious Souls
Monday, September 24, 2018
10am-11am PT (1pm-2pm ET)

Old traditions of leadership would have us believe that to lead well, we must do more with less, martyr ourselves for a cause, and work harder than everyone around us. This old way leads us to burnout, depression, despair, and, ultimately, getting out of the game altogether - if we don't die first. But what if true leadership flows from a place of wholeness and love? What if we could leave behind old ways of believing, behaving, and being to build a life we don't need to escape from - so we can embody all the amazing values we say with our mouths and post on our Instagram accounts, in order to lead from a place of radical love? 

This workshop will:
  1. Help you learn to recognize when something needs to change in your beliefs, behaviors, or being so you can make the daring and caring choice to Leave in Love, and know how to do it without burning out or burning things down;
  2. Show you the elements to building a life you don't need to escape from so you can Live in Love;  
  3. Provide a vision for "returning with the elixir" - bringing your entire self to the work of leadership - which requires that we constantly become better and better versions of ourselves - so you can Lead in Love without burning out or selling out.

Hidden Assets for Fundraising Effectiveness - Your Management Practices
Monday, September 24, 2018
12pm-1pm PT (3pm-4pm ET)
Struggling to improve fundraising results? Don’t blame it on your people. Don’t even blame it on your donor-management software (well, maybe a little) or whether you’ve embraced the latest hot-off-the-presses cool new app or event trick. Look at how you manage your fundraising efforts instead. You might be making some unwarranted, counter-productive assumptions hurting your fundraising.
 

Great management practices make it easier for staff to succeed, by removing obstacles and providing tools and resources needed to achieve success. In fundraising, many of those all-important tools are MIA – missing in action. Here are a few you’ll be able to put in place right away:

--The pipeline model – breaking down gift-cultivation into manageable steps
--Ideal-donor profiles – improving your ability to know which funders justify more (or less) attention, and when
--Performance metrics - making sure your fundraisers know what’s expected of them at work every day
--Regular performance reviews – supportive meetings and encourage make a huge difference

Organizations embracing these practices outperform those who don’t, often by as much as 40% in a single year. They also retain their fundraisers much longer, saving the enormous costs and hassle of replacement.

Ellen Bristol has been working with nonprofit and for-profit revenue-generating departments for over forty years. Her experience and research prove the benefits of adopting thoughtful management practices. She’s the developer of the innovative fundraising methodology Fundraising the SMART Way™, and this year she introduces SMART Way Analytics™, a software application automating the methodology to make it easier to use and more accessible.

You’re invited to complete our Leaky Bucket Assessment for Effective Fundraising, a free on-line survey. Submit yours by Sept. 18, and we’ll include your responses (anonymously!) in our presentation.

Resilient Leadership

Wednesday, September 26, 2018
8am-9am PT (11am-12pm ET)
When we consider the total hours of our lives spent working, it’s no wonder that this experience can have a serious impact over time on our health and well-being.
 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a quarter of all employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives.  “Many of us now work in constantly connected, always-on, highly demanding work cultures where stress and the risk of burnout are widespread. Since the pace and intensity of contemporary work culture are not likely to change, it’s more important than ever to build resilience skills to effectively navigate your work life.” The Harvard Business Review 2016
 
This session will offer you insight and tactics toward actualizing a more rewarding and resilient workplace experience. We will cover the following elements:
 
-          Identify and lead with your values
-          Sharpen your listening and resolve skills
-          Managing up

Decolonizing Our Nonprofits
Monday, September 24, 2018
10am-11am PT (1pm-2pm ET)

In this presentation, Denechia “Neesha” Powell-Twagirumukiza of Carolyn Peruth Coaching & Consulting will elaborate on the principles featured in their article, “3 Ways to Decolonize Your Nonprofit As Told By A Black Queer Feminist Organizer”, which has been shared internationally from the Everyday Feminism website. 

During this session, participants will:

-- Explore how fostering a culture of abundance, collectivism, and transformative justice/community accountability can transform nonprofits and community-based organizations into ‘decolonizing spaces’.

-- Apply “decolonizing nonprofits” principles in order to problem-solve common experiences of racism, queerphobia, transphobia and other forms of oppression at nonprofits and CBOs.

-- Draw from personal experiences and knowledge to develop their own principles for decolonizing nonprofits.

How to be more entrepreneurial in your nonprofit using marketing automation

Wednesday, September 26, 2018
12pm-1pm PT (3pm-4pm ET)
What do you do when a new donation comes in? Do you have stacks of thank you notes waiting to be written? For those of us who have few systems, it can be a chore to respond to yet another new donor. That is about to change.

Automated Marketing. What's in it for you?
Why do you have to email donors one by one, when you could email your donors all at once? What if you could tie someone's survey answers to their donor record, and their visits to your donation page too? What if there were a way to make this all happen seamlessly, allowing you to find out your donor's values, and nurture donor relationships without having to put in a ton of effort?

Come to this session and learn:
--How to create automated emails your donors will love
--Survey questions to help you find out what your donors will give to
--What A/B testing can do for your donate page
--How to create a culture of experimentation in your nonprofit communications department
--Tips on how you can bring all your systems together, streamline and succeed on a shoestring

The Introverted Fundraiser
Friday, September 28, 2018
8am-9am PT (11am-12pm ET)

Have you ever seen someone else take credit for YOUR idea? Or been hesitant to speak up at a board meeting? Maybe you know that you need to make those donor phone calls or face-to-face meetings, but something inside you keeps putting it off.

Researchers estimate that extroverts make up 50 - 74 percent of the population. But you wouldn’t know that based on a society that seems to only value extroverts. And nowhere is extroversion more highly regarded than in the nonprofit sector, particularly in fundraising.

In this session, you’ll discover:

--Easy ways to guide your board and staff, even if you’re not a natural leader
--Best ways to approach person to person meetings
--How to communicate with your donors on a deeper level
--How to use the power of one-to-one
--How your ability to listen can be your secret super power 
--And, most of all, you’ll focus on the benefits and real power of introversion, particularly if you’re a fundraising professional.

Decent Work: Making the Invisible Visible 
Friday, September 28, 2018
9am-10am (12pm-1pm ET)

Your nonprofit is BLEEDING money. According to the Cygnet Research Group's Donor Centered Leadership report, every time a fundraiser leaves, that represents, on average, a $50,000 loss for your nonprofit. Turnover for 3 years running can spell catastrophe for your nonprofit fundraising, and cost you upwards of $400,000. Conversely, when a good fundraiser stays for 3 years, they can make you upwards of $500,000.  It costs 9% of what they make per year to keep your good fundraiser. If you want to save money AND make more money, then you need to learn about Decent Work.

When your nonprofit has constant turnover either in program staff or fundraising staff, your services suffer. Your mission suffers. And your staff suffer. How can we end this suffering? Decent Work.


Ontario Nonprofit Network (ONN) is mobilizing nonprofits to build a decent work movement in the sector. ONN is the independent network for the 55,000 nonprofits in Ontario, focused on policy, advocacy, and services to strengthen Ontario’s nonprofit sector as a key pillar of our society and economy. In the US, 1 in 10 people work in a nonprofit. That means in the US, nonprofits are a key pillar of our society and economy as well. We need to be looking to this Decent Work initiative to see how we can frame real systemic change here in the US as well.

Attendees will learn about:
-- The Decent Work framework
-- Current research on gender as it relates to the wage gap and leaky leadership in the sector

-- How to apply Decent Work at your nonprofit
-- Dealing with change-resistant board and staff
-- Case Studies of Decent Work

In this workshop we will present our findings on women’s employment experiences in Ontario’s nonprofit sector from our research activities and engage the audience in a discussion about solutions for change at the organizational, network and policy levels.

Daniel Hyman
Creative Problem Solving from the Inside Out
Friday, September 28, 2018
12pm-1pm PT (3pm-4pm ET)

Did you know that creativity is not just about painting, playing the piano or writing a poem? 

Creativity is about problem solving.

It’s about seeing things from a higher perspective. It’s about seeing the goodness in people when they are having trouble seeing the goodness in themselves. It’s about connecting with people at their soul level and helping them find the strength inside themselves.

Creativity is about finding new and exciting ways to get new donors.

Creativity is about knowing what changes need to be made, when they need to be made to break free from the limits of your previous success.

Daniel will be not teaching but he will be facilitating a dynamic energy alignment designed to clear your creativity blocks and help you achieve a new realm of inner clarity, inspiration and passion which ultimately leads to your profitability and bottom line. Join us. This presentation can make the difference between surviving and thriving on the way to the top.


More sessions and speakers will be added as we get closer to the conference date. Stay Tuned!

All the presentations at the Nonprofit Leadership Summit were great. I believe my fundraising will be most impacted by the major gifts strategies I learned in Jeff's presentation.

Dear [Boss],

Remember how we wanted to get more [earned income, planned giving donors, major donor meetings] this year?

I'd like to learn how to fundraise more effectively. Luckily, there's this nonprofit leadership summit coming up September 24, 26 and 28th where I can learn how to do it.

AND Good news: It's online! That means no airfare, meals, or hotel to pay for. SCORE!

Even more good news: It's got sessions from Ellen Bristol, author of Fundraising the SMART way, to help us measure what REALLY matters in our fundraising office, automation expert Justin Handley, who will help us work smarter, not harder, at our communications with donors, and Kristen Kennedy, a major gifts meetings master, who has helped nonprofits get millions from major donors.

This summit could really help us succeed in so many areas, and it won't require me to be out of the office. Plus it will all be recorded, so I can watch the sessions over and over again.

So what do you say? Shall we do this?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

[Your Name Goes Here]

P.S. We've got to hurry-the summit starts September 24th-right around the corner. I'd love to help us get more fundraising income in 2019 and this summit will help!
