Last week, Nancy Schwartz, Katya Andresen, Sarah Durham and I hosted a meetup for nonprofit marketing and fundraising folks attending the Nonprofit Technology Conference in DC. This is our third year hosting the event, and it’s getting bigger every year. (Note to NTEN: Give us a bigger room, and one NOT next to others, because when 300 people are networking, it’s LOUD.)
This year, our theme was dealing with competing priorities and finding the right balance when there’s always too much to do. We decided to ask participants to introduce themselves to two people they didn’t know, and then to work together on two assignments:
1) Writing down a tip or tool they use to make their work lives more manageable.
2) Writing down a question about juggling marketing priorities.
We then came back together and worked through both the tips and the questions. Katya did a great job creating a summary of the workshop on the fly:
