Can you plan for the unplanned?

Michel Hudson, CFRE, Founder of 501(c)onsulting

With so many things uncertain these days, it’s hard to think about planning – either for the short-term or long into the future. Even though you may feel stuck in overwhelm, you can still plot a course in a strategic direction.

This session will uncover how you can create a plan that will strengthen and position your organization for success – and also allow for the possibilities that might derail your plans at any point.

Nonprofit Innovation in an Age of Crisis

Cherian Koshy, CFRE, and AFP Master Trainer

As we begin a new decade filled with uncertainty, as an industry we continue to struggle with several of the same age-old, seemingly intractable problems. For nonprofit leaders, a time of crisis can be an existential threat to your organization, or a real opportunity to create value and define solutions to help the organization effectively navigate the rough terrain. These days, we are all innovating on the fly with work from home solutions, inadvertent homeschooling, as well as figuring out how to maintain donor engagement from an appropriate social distance. Times of crisis leads some organizations back to "what we've always done" and others to reassess, reinvent, and restructure. Even if your favorite phrase is, "that's how we've always done it," this Flash Class will enable and empower you to innovate with real examples of how to implement strategies that will make a huge difference in your organization. The good news is that innovation investments are one area where less is more. While these examples will be focused on nonprofits, welcome your for-profit friends, colleagues in programming, and anyone who's interested in innovation to join this discussion.
