It belongs to creative people.
We’re the ones who know how to stimulate nonprofit brains so they can powerfully deliver upon the promise of creating a better world. Bold creativity is now imperative to raise money, advocate and build participation and membership. Today, your success engaging funders, foundations, corporations, board members, staff , volunteers and consumers is a direct result of the BIG IDEAS you’ll learn to create.
How is it that all our seminars, facilitations and retreats are fresh, unexpected, pulsing, engaging, never alike—and producing such impressive results? We were an ad agency creative team who won awards for our work on Apple, Coca-Cola and Toyota. We inject this creative culture into the seminars and lead as Creative Directors. We bring in design thinking, new-world knowledge, intellectual thought, problem solving and leadership challenges. We assemble seminar participants into creative teams, inspiring and teaching them to create big ideas and how to implement them, changing their organizations and the world.
On the evening of October 22, 2014, Hollywood mega agency William Morris Endeavor hosted its Philanthropy Series inviting Seize the Conversation to facilitate. In attendance were celeb philanthropies, nonprofits supported by WME, foundations and businesses with clientele in the nonprofit sector. Thank you to WME for the opportunity and for proving what corporate responsibility can make happen.
In this hyper-sped-up-technologically-driven-global-society-where-communications-is-now-King—who owns the conversation, wins. The owners of the conversation win among funders. Staff. Boards. Volunteers. Leaders in business and society. Policy makers. Media. This is the spirit that drives the Re-wiring the Nonprofit Brain. A Transformational Seminar Series. Seizetheconversation dives into the content of the conversations you should own. It frames them. It identifies your marketplaces’ influencers and their networks. It injects a CREATIVE CULTURE to build BIG IDEAS that spread those conversations, powerfully engaging people towards what you want and need to accomplish.
