Overcoming External Barriers: It's a Whole New World
Dr. Susan Raymond, PHD, Executive Vice President, Research and Analytics, Changing Our World

Author Dr. Susan Raymond explores the new realities, new economics and new challenges facing nonprofit organizations from the Post-Recession economy to privacy zealots and threatened government regulation of Big Data, to changing demographics. How can your nonprofit be equipped to thrive in this changing environment?

Overcoming Internal Barriers: We Have Met the Enemy and It Is Us.
Chuck Longfield,  Chief Scientist, Blackbaud, Inc.

If learning to navigate the new realities of a post-recession economy, new policies, and the debates watchdog organizations (and media) are having over our effectiveness vs efficiency aren’t enough — we are also having to balance those challenges with the challenges we face internally. Many of our organizations have become used to a certain level of unrestricted income that our fundraising programs have historically produced. Fear — of the economy, of the unknown, of failing — results in a dependency on best practices and “safe bets” at the expense of what might completely “move the dial”. Finding the right level of risk taking can’t be limited to modern techniques, but a deeper commitment to changing—easier said than done. And, pressure to meet short term organization needs prohibits organizations from investing in strategies and initiatives necessary to ensure long term financial health and sustainability. Come discuss both challenges and solutions.

Changing the Way We Lead

Peggy Dyer, Chief Marketing Officer, American Red Cross

It is increasingly challenging to find and retain the right mix of internal talent, agencies, and consultants to meet the needs of our ever changing fundraising world.  And organizational structures, silos and sacred cows are barriers that must be identified and overcome.  We can’t be satisfied with “this is the way it’s always been done”.  How can we think differently about the way we set goals and measure success, how we work with consultants (or clients), affiliates (or headquarters), and even how we might partner with other nonprofits (or consultants) to increase efficiencies, leverage expertise, and generate revenue that may be the way to a sustainable future?  Can we think outside the box to identify models that work, models to develop, and models to consider for maximizing all available resources to position our organizations for success?
