Thank You Seth Godin! Engagement Tips for Nonprofits


I am still coming off the high of information and action from #MCON2012 and then this post Feet on the Street from Seth Godin appeared today. Seth has shared some great tips for us nonprofiteers. An organization (read nonprofit) with feet on the street and alert and regular attention to detail can build more trust and develop better relationships than one than hits and runs.

Nonprofit Nate – His #MCON2012 Take Away


Talisman Note: MCON2012 was a virtual conference full of great information. Nathan Hand wrote this great post on Scott Gerber’s take on Millennials and the work place. Glad to share his thoughts with you – please leave your comments and tell us what you think! You can also read Beth Kanter’s blog on Scott Gerber’s keynote at MCON2012 here as well as Scott’s response to the comments.

Last week the folks at Achieve and the Case Foundation put on another stellar virtual conference around engaging millennials in nonprofits, social change and more.  There were the expected buzz words, info-nuggets and sound bytes but also an abundance of new intelligence shed by rising stars in social innovation.  The sessions/speakers were fantastic (all of which attendees and new registrants can still access) and the discussion in chat rooms and on Twitter was vibrant.

Promiscuous (Social) Networking @ #MCON2012


The purpose of this post is share my thoughts on promiscuous networking. MCON2012 has set up a GREAT website allowing registered attendees to share profile information, connect to Twitter, chat in the virtual lobby or networking lounge and chat rooms – all before the conference starts.
