Creating and Communicating a Compelling Value Proposition
This panel discussion will provide insight from nonprofit leaders of how they are capturing the imagination and galvanizing their community through a compelling value proposition. Media, charity watchdogs and sometimes industry leaders themselves, often point the public to a metric of how little the organization is spending on management and general as a key indicator of the charity’s value. The leaders on this panel have found a way to take control of their message of value by strategically defining their value proposition and communicating it to stakeholders, both internally and externally.
