Anna Young, Senior Director, Strategy & Learning
Presentation & Continental Breakfast at 8:00
Networking at 9:30
What’s going on in the world of strategy? Are five year strategic plans redundant? What can nonprofits learn from the private sector? How do you translate strategy into action?
We will explore recent trends and insights into setting strategic direction; share experiences and lessons learned from the journey that Mercy Corps has made; and create the opportunity for peer coaching, trouble shooting, and feedback on topline strategies from participants’ own organizations. Come explore how to make your own strategic plans more effective and better tailored for your own organizations!
