OPENING KEYNOTE: DOUG KEELEY
THE MARK OF A LEADER
Monday April 28, 2014 - 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Being a leader doesn’t mean having a special ingredient no one else has. That’s a good thing, because in today’s organizations, leadership is everyone’s job. Join self- professed “leadership junkie” Doug Keeley as he shares how to get more people in your organization thinking and acting like leaders. Using powerful storytelling, Keeley shows how his Five Level Leadership principle emphasizes that when people are engaged not only with their intellect and hands, but with their spirit, imagination and heart, there is nothing their organization cannot do. This captivating presentation is sure to leave you inspired and motivated for the road ahead.

Doug Keeley, CEO and chief storyteller of Mark of a Leader is a leading communicator, serial entrepreneur and an acknowledged expert at creating cultures of leadership at every level of the organization. His popular program Mark of a Leader has been used repeatedly by leading corporations, associations and schools to inspire and motivate current and future leaders.

KEYNOTE: DAN PALLOTTA
UNCHARITABLE: HOW RESTRAINTS ON NON-PROFITS UNDERMINE THEIR POTENTIAL
Tuesday April 29, 2014 - 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Maverick fundraiser Dan Pallotta believes the way we’ve been taught to think about non-profit organizations is upside down. We force them to obsess over costs instead of results, denying them the same permission to innovate that we give the for-profit sector. This leaves non-profits struggling to achieve their potential and make the social impact we need them to have. Get set to be challenged by this popular TED talks speaker as he draws on themes from his best-selling book Uncharitable and a career as a promotional trail-blazer for humanitarian causes.

Dan Pallotta is an expert in not-for-profit sector innovation and a pioneering social entrepreneur. As founder and chief humanitarian officer of Advertising for Humanity, he helps foundations and philanthropists transform the growth potential of their favorite grantees. He has also written the best-selling book Charity Case: How the Nonprofit Community Can Stand Up For Itself and Really Change the World and is a weekly contributor to the Harvard Business Review online.
