Social media offers powerful ways for New Zealand community organisations, NGOs and charities to reach out and transform the world.
Whether you use social media to engage people, friendraise, fundraise, advocate, learn, get organised, work together or even deliver services, it is vital you measure your progress and make time to reflect on how well things are going.
Successful organisations use data intelligently to improve how they use social media. New Zealand not for profit organisations are invited to two workshops being run by Beth Kanter to get a head start on being data informed.
When it comes to leadership on how nonprofits can optimise their use of social media, Beth Kanter is internationally renowned for her inspirational work as a trainer and author. Fresh from the pages of her book “Measuring the Networked Nonprofit” (2012), Beth will share practical, road-tested frameworks and examples from around the globe. Find out more about Beth.
