 Registration is closed for this event
Craft a ‘why’ that will inspire your audience, attract donors, and advance your mission. Lean on the tried-and-true fundamentals of storytelling and learn about incorporating new technologies to engage your audience in a memorable way.

Your story connects your mission with people who share your passion for making our word better. Attract a new audience and keep things fresh for people who have been with you since the beginning. Make your story stronger with a revamped approach. 

With this session you will: 

  • Identify and communicate your “heartfelt why,” the personal passion that drives your nonprofit work  

  • Discover three ways to energize and connect to audience 

  • Learn the contents of a complete story: including need, purpose, cost, and more  

Get at the heart of your ‘heartfelt why’ and register for this online session now. 

Ask the Expert: We'll reconvene on May 13, 2021 from 9 to 10 am for a follow-up session to give you the opportunity to ask the expert(s) questions about applying what you've learned to your messaging.

Our Presenters:
Bruce Ellison is the managing partner of NPTechassist. A computer nerd with long experience in designing, implementing, and supporting mission critical applications for nonprofits. Bruce has also provided tech solutions for corporations and government entities including NIKE, the State of Oregon and the State of New Mexico. Seeking to make a difference, he volunteered with a national nonprofit and then worked as the COO of that organization where he gained insight into the operational (including data management) issues that they face. His passion for making the world better can be found in the faces of Jameson and Brayden, “the two cutest grandkids ever.” 

Since her retirement from the Erin Kimball Foundation, Sue Kimball provides consulting and technical expertise to optimize nonprofits’ success. Now at NPTechAssist, she assists nonprofits in enhancing their connection to community, grow their impact and sustain their missions. Her approach is informed by a broad background that includes teaching, nonprofit volunteering, and advocacy. As with Bruce, her motivation is making life better for the next generation, your grandchildren and hers.
