Keynote Presentations

Nneka Allen Presents The Power of "I" in the Charitable Sector

This Keynote session discusses the power of “I” statements and first-person narratives. Stories are much more than a book or narrative – they are the way our minds make sense of our lives and world. We work at understanding events and people by constructing stories to interpret what is occurring around us. 

So we must ask ourselves, what stories do we expose ourselves to? What stories do we accept as truth? How does this shape how we manifest our missions in the charitable sector? And most importantly, whom are we leaving behind?

3- Part Keynote Series on Measuring Your Nonprofit's Success, with Angela Joens and Sarah Sims 

Some days donor relations metrics can feel like a mystery. Everyone is asking, what do we track? How do we track it? What does our leadership want to see? You already have all the tools you need to be a super sleuth and to solve the mystery – you just need to look at it from a variety of angles. In parts 1 and 2, we explore what key metrics we should be developing and how to find these metrics in Andar/360.

Stewardship and donor relations practitioners know their work – internally and with donors – is both an integral and strategic component of the overall gift cycle. But how to convey that impact in metrics and language fundraisers will appreciate can be a challenge. Part 3 will cover how to share your metrics in a powerful and meaningful way.

  • “The Virtual Users Group Conference in 2021 was a great experience. The sessions were very well organized and the information provided was extremely helpful for multiple departments in my United Way. I especially liked how the sessions were recorded and available to re-watch throughout the year. It also allowed me to watch sessions that I missed while they were running live. Overall it was a wonderful experience!"
