See3 Strategy Summit
From 8:00am to 9:00pm
See3 Communications
4021 N Broadway

Raise more money. Find (the right) volunteers. Create content that matters. Work with less stress.

Sound good?

The See3 Strategy Summit is a one-day, deep-dive, collaborative workshop for nonprofit teams to hit pause and reset their digital strategies for long-term impact and organizational effectiveness. Join a select group of courageous do-gooders from a variety of organizations to learn, reflect, plan, and connect in powerful ways. Walk away with proven concepts and on-the-ground tools to ensure you are maximizing your digital communications and moving your supporters to action.

The Summit is intended for organizational teams of 2-3 people, which must include at least one representative from marketing/communications. Cross-departmental teams will gain the most from this experience.

Applications for our August 31 Strategy Summit are no longer being accepted at this time. Please reach out to See3 Director of Engagement Miriam Brosseau at [email protected] if you would like to learn about upcoming Strategy Summit events.

What you’ll get:

Your team will partner with See3’s digital strategists, top digital storytelling experts, and fellow participants to:

  • Tell the right story. Explore a proven framework for powerful storytelling in the digital age, and collaboratively dive into tools for applying that strategy to your entire organization
  • Get in your supporters’ heads. Understand the role of neuroscience and positive psychology in crafting effective messaging and moving supporters to action
  • Stay at the cutting edge. Gain insider insights into the future of technology, the implications for nonprofits, and strategies for keeping your cause relevant
  • Work smarter, not harder. Learn about the philosophy of Digital Minimalism, a holistic approach to digital communications which helps ensure your content will rise above the noise, your digital presence will positively impact the entire organization, and you’ll still get home by 6:30.

What you won’t get:

  • Random tactics
  • All the answers
  • Bored

How do I know if the Strategy Summit is right for me?

Good question. For starters, you and your team work in the nonprofit/social good space, and you’re available on August 31 in Chicago.

But more importantly --

You love making a difference. You see the potential in digital to make big impact. You’ve got a “growth mindset” and are excited to learn from new people, and contribute your own wisdom and experience. You’re willing to check your assumptions. You know your organization/cause is doing great things...and you know it can always do better. You understand that leadership is a behavior, not a title. And you’re ready to start now.

Sounds great. Where is this happening? What will we do?

Glad you asked! Here is all the pertinent information:
