We’ve been to many nonprofit conferences where the agenda is packed with panels that are just agency pitches in disguise, or sponsors hawking their products, and consultants who sell from the stage.
It’s time to redeem the nonprofit conference. That starts with the speaker slate.
We’ve spent the last three years traveling around the world to the top marketing and optimization conferences to find the most engaging speakers with the best content. We were able to convince many of them to come to Fort Worth this September for the Nonprofit Innovation and Optimization Summit.
While we have plenty of innovative nonprofit fundraisers on the agenda, we also secured some of the most compelling marketers and optimizers who bring strategies from the for-profit world that you can apply in your marketing and fundraising programs.
Here are just a few of the speakers…
Professional Speaker & Founder at The Sales Lion
In 2001 and fresh out of college, Marcus Sheridan stumbled across his first business with two friends and began installing swimming pools out of the back of a beat-up pickup truck. Nine years later, and with the help of incredible innovations through inbound and content marketing, Sheridan’s company overcame the collapse of the housing market and became one of the largest pool installers in the US and currently has the most visited swimming pool web site in the world— www.RiverPoolsandSpas.com .
With such success, in late 2009, Sheridan started his sales/marketing/and personal development blog— The Sales Lion, and has since grown The Sales Lion brand to be synonymous with inbound and content marketing excellence while being featured in multiple industry publications, including the New York Times where he was referred to as a “web marketing guru.” Today, when Sheridan is not giving riveting and passion-filled keynotes around the globe or consulting with businesses and brands, he generally finds himself on an adventure with his wife and four children.
