PRESENTER BIO

LeadershipConnect: Nonprofit Messaging 101

Too many non-profits spend time and resources on newsletters, print mailings, social media channels and website promotions, pumping out content that misses their “core messages.” Without time given to specific strategic consideration, they inadvertently send messages that may be vague, jingoistic, and ultimately confusing. And that means they get overlooked, or worse, ignored.
 
In this actionable 60-minute program, attendees will learn:
 
• The key elements of an effective communications plan.
• How to identify and communicate with your key audiences.
• How “branding” is a lot more than your logo.
• How to use events, content, and images to drive your messages home.
• Why every non-profit needs a plan for crisis communications.
 
There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
 

Session Date: Tuesday, April 26th from 9:00am to 10:00am

This session is virtual and will be held online via Zoom. This program is is funded and made possible thanks to the generous support of The Bunbury Fund at the Princeton Area Community Foundation; there is no charge for participants to attend.
