Event Details

Nick MacDonald, Nonprofit Analytics & Learning Consultant

How do you dream of changing the world? Few people answer that question with "managing projects" but the truth is many nonprofits manage their work through projects. Managing projects efficiently and effectively is often the weak link in delivering impact.

In this session of the Nonprofit Leaders Network, participants will:

  • Understand how to apply key principles of project management
  • Learn the important disciplines that need to be applied to get results
  • Learn to apply the right tools to projects to stay on time, on budget, and deliver high impact programs

NEW Flash Consulting Sessions Available!

Fund development consultants Clarinda Hanson White and James Phelps will be available for complimentary 10-minute "flash" consulting sessions during the networking portion of this event. Availability is limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
