It's my turn this week to host the Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants and I can say without a doubt this was the hardest week to pull together because there were so many posts to choose from. But here goes. . .
On Learning and Professional Development
- Elisa Ortiz of the Nonprofit Congress Blog took my advice this week to learn by creating lists. In this post, she shares what she did and didn't learn at a workshop on how to facilitate meetings.
On Marketing, Fundraising and Presentations
- Beth Dunn of Small Dots takes a look at a new service, called Good2gether, that puts nonprofit events and content into an array of online media partners.
- Katya Andresen of Getting to the Point writes about the Piggy-back Principle and suggests strategies for aligning your nonprofit marketing messages with what's already happening in the world.
- Don't Tell the Donor shares he/she (we don't know for sure) wrote for The Nonprofit Times called "Our Donors Are Talking, What Are We Afraid Of?"
- Kivi Leroux Miller has an excellent post on how to improve your PowerPoint presentations using two great books--Beyond Bullet Points and Presentation Zen.
And from Sam Davidson of Cool People Care comes this reminder to take a break from technology and enjoy the gifts of the "real world," while Sherri Garrity of Make it Count has a nice post on 80/20 communications.
