First Business and United Way of Dane County: Join greater Madison-area leaders at the 2017 Enterprising Nonprofits event
MADISON, WI – May 19, 2017 –Enterprising NONPROFITS – Madison will be held at The Madison Concourse Hotel on Friday, June 2. This all-day interactive conference allows for-profit and nonprofit business leaders, executive directors, business development directors, and volunteer coordinators to collaborate and share best practices. First Business, in partnership with United Way of Dane County, is excited to bring this event to the local community.
“The nonprofit community is integral to our day-to-day quality of life and long-term success,” states Beth Korth, Senior Vice President at First Business Bank. “First Business has offered this program in Appleton for the past four years. We’re excited to bring it to our Madison community as well.”
At the Madison event, the line-up includes keynote speaker Paul Wesselmann presenting “Creating Ripples, Making Waves: Transforming Through Innovation.” Change happens — fast and frequently! Organizations and individuals determined to thrive in challenging times need to be increasingly creative, nimble, and responsive to shifts. More than ever, we need to build and maintain mutually beneficial relationships beyond our usual networks. Our opening session will fire us up for the day, and explore several tools and strategies to help us extend our capacity to connect, change, and grow.
After the keynote, the day will be broken down into morning, early afternoon, and late afternoon. Morning session topics are:
-Developing Your Board
-Talent Development/Succession Planning
-Selling Your Mission to Support Your Mission
During lunch, there is a session led by Paul Wesselmann presenting “Making Today Count: Transforming Today’s Energy Into Tomorrow’s Success.” We want to squeeze in a few ideas about how to make sure the motivation and ideas we’re exploring today will make it back to your organization, so we asked our morning keynote speaker to provide an infusion of energy with a few ideas and some table topics to enhance the potential of both our networking and our take-aways from the day.
After lunch, the sessions include:
-Shifting Your Mindset: Focusing on Engaging Your Community Through Social Media and Leaving the Numbers Behind
-Building Board Engagement
-Collaboration with Community Partners – HIRE Story
Afternoon sessions include:
-Techniques for Building Community Engagement
-The Secret to Revealing Your Inner Leadership
