Look Who's Talking at Engage!
I may be biased — just a little (*cough* completely *cough*) — but I really believe there is so much to love about the Engage conference. Not the least among the reasons is our lineup of speakers. Not only do they preside over our in-depth cases studies and delve deep into attendees' concerns and questions, but they're available all day long to chat and further explore whatever it is the audience is looking to explore.
Let's take a moment and see who'll be talking when Engage happens in Philadelphia next Thursday. (On Monday, we'll talk a little about our lineup of roundtable moderators.)
In our opening session, Kivi Leroux Miller, one of fundraising's most highly regarded authors and consultants, will break down what it takes to tell the story of your mission — the backbone of your fundraising — in ways that engage donors to increase both the breadth and depth of their commitment to your cause.
Kivi is president of NonprofitMarketingGuide.com and the author of "Content Marketing for Nonprofits: A Communications Map for Engaging Your Community, Becoming a Favorite Cause, and Raising More Money" and "The Nonprofit Marketing Guide: High-Impact, Low-Cost Ways to Build Support for Your Good Cause." She's a big name that helps smaller nonprofits and even communications departments of one make a big impression with savvy marketing and communications. She also teaches a weekly webinar series and writes a leading blog on nonprofit communications at NonprofitMarketingGuide.com.
Kivi's breezy style is comfortable but professional, authoritative but accessible — and always infectious. We're so looking forward to hearing from her.
Case Study 1: The Coast Guard Foundation
The Coast Guard Foundation managed its program internally prior to partnering with LW Robbins (now RobbinsKersten Direct) in 2009. Since then, the organization has become a study in creative partnership and achieved significant growth in revenue, net revenue and donors over the past four years.
