More on Stephen Melanson”s Keynote:
Unique in the marketplace, Verbal Branding is both a new, spoken application for marketplace differentiation and a redefined foundation for brand development. It creates competitive advantage through multiple dimensions of simultaneous business improvement.
Those dimensions include sales, internal culture, and brand density.
In essence, Verbal Branding is a new basis for thinking and speaking, allowing any organization to marginalize the competition and apply their brand in a practical, moment-by-moment way.
More on Lisa Morrissey”s Presentation:
Raving fans of your organization make it possible for you to effectively and successfully:
- spread the word about your important organization, cause, event or campaign,
- engage and keep the right donors, sponsors, volunteers and supporters, and
- execute successful fundraising initiatives.
- You can increase your chances at receiving grants by building and maintaining positive relationships with funders.
- Make grant seeking one part of an overall fundraising strategy which focuses on the importance building relationships.
- Know and understand the key players at the foundation and in your organization.
Remember that getting grants is an ongoing process. Build the foundation for future success.
