From Tool to Co-Worker: What Digital Transformation Looks Like

Community Futures works to prepare BC for the future by helping marginalized people build businesses. But stuck with old workflows the organization wasn’t able to grow to serve more people and employees became frustrated having to work with inefficient tools. Worse, staff couldn’t coach entrepreneurs on modern best practices when they weren’t practicing them internally. In this presentation you will learn how one office located in Penticton embraced a digital transformation that allowed them to grow and better deliver the mission.

Topics include:

  • Selling the volunteer board and staff on digital transformation,
  • Restructuring job roles according to technology and managing impacts of automation,
  • Changing staff’s relationship with technology from tool to coworker.

The Tao of Integrated Campaigns

It seems that integrated campaigns are all the buzz these days. But what does “integration” even mean, how do you do it, and why bother with it? Ecojustice’s Kimberly Shearon shares three big lessons her team learned (the hard way) from its foray into the world of integrated campaigns. Also, pop culture references.

Social Media from the Top

Should EDs & CEOs be posting on social media?

Chris Brandt, former ED of Music Heals, shares best practices for stewarding relationships and raising money with social media.

Social Media isn’t just your first point of contact with current and prospective donors, volunteers, and the media – it’s often the only one. The risk of not talking is that no one knows that you exist. How would you evaluate your organizations presence on social media? Are you involved in the conversation, either through the org’s channels or your own? You can’t be seen until you learn how to see.

The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Linking Self-Care and Wellbeing to Organizational Impact

This keynote is about how and why it is important to treat self-care and a culture of well-being as an organizational strategy and cultural norm. When self-care initiatives are treated as “extras” instead of being built right into the fabric of an organization’s culture or leadership does not model the behavior, they often fall flat.
