Calling board directors, donors, non-profit staff and executive leadership! If you are engaged in work with our local non-profits, SB2: Inspiring Non-Profit Transformation on Thursday, July 28th, 2016 at 7:30 AM at The Francis is a must-attend! SRQ Media is an organization that prides itself in facilitating relevant conversation and events that challenge us to think and “do” differently. Get your ticket while you still can—we sold out last year!
We’ll welcome Lilly Weinberg, Director of Community Foundations of the Knight Foundation to the stage for a special keynote presentation on the strategies and cultural shift non-profits organizations can facilitate to manage internal change and transformation. She will be joined by Dr. Michael Crosby of Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, Johnette Isham of Realize Bradenton, Mireya Eavey of United Way Suncoast, Sarasota and CareerEdge and Dr. Larry Thompson of Ringling College of Art and Design. Jaime DiDomenico of Cool Today will join us for opening remarks as the event sponsor and SRQ magazine’s Executive Publisher Wes Roberts will moderate the panel discussion to capture the “rethink” that needs to happen to navigate change. If you’re on the fence on whether or not you should join us, we have three reasons why we think you should wake up a few minutes earlier and join us for bacon, coffee and great discussion!
1. The Knight Foundation is a big mover and shaker — don’t miss the chance to hear from one of the key leaders in transformational change!
As the Director of Community Foundations, keynote Lilly Weinberg manages the Knight Foundation’s $140 million investment in 18 non-resident communities. That’s a significant push in moving the needle!
2. Be inspired by cutting-edge thinkers wrangling BHAGs.
The Big Hairy Audacious Goal or BHAG is the feisty beast each of our panelists is wrangling at their organizations. Pushing the envelope is engrained in their leadership DNA. So how do they share that passion with others and align all the fish to swim the same direction? This and more over breakfast!
3. There’s no shortage of bacon and caffeine.
Regardless if you’re more fruit and yogurt or bacon and eggs, we’ll have all major food groups covered on July 28th. The conversation is early, but the breakfast is delicious. And the coffee is hot. You don’t have to wake up and wonder if you’ll have time to scarf down a breakfast bar on the way to work. We’ll take care of a well-balanced breakfast for you, care of the dynamic team at The Francis. We promise you’ll walk away with more a-ha moments than you know what to do with.
