Your Story is Your Brand

 Conducted in a consultative format, this three-hour workshop will focus on brand definition, brand storytelling and social media best practice in equal measure, combining group and individual activities with lecture-style presentation. Each workshop focal point will flow one into the next to explain how brand definition feeds successful storytelling and how brand stories can be successfully shared across social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blogs, particularly given the unique challenges/opportunities presented by each social platform.

Building Better Boards

Strong nonprofit organizations and agencies are built by volunteers coming together to form a strong governing board.  A strong board is intentional about embracing best practices in governance.  Come learn about the roles and responsibilities that high-functioning boards embrace, including the three duties of the board, new member orientation, succession planning, fundraising, meeting structure, committees and so much more.  Join us as we explore how your board can move from functional to exceptional to help position your organization for leadership.
