Continental Breakfast and Registration

Building Organizations that Matter
You work in the most important sector in the world, one often stuck with less-than-ideal tools. Adnan Mahmud, a young and already veteran nonprofit expert, will share his inspiring journey in building a nonprofit, and now growing a startup company dedicated to providing better tools to the public sector. Walking us through examples of innovative technology uses in the nonprofit world, he’ll also share why the biggest, most powerful asset for nonprofit leadership isn’t actually any “technology,” and what we can do to stay in front of trends to find greater success.

Adnan Mahmud | Founder & CEO, LiveStories

Making Authentic Connections with the Millennial Generation
Millennials are now young adults and a wired, connected world is all they have ever known. This population segment is nearly as large as the Baby Boomers generation. This session explores the attitudes and perceptions of these 20-35 year old consumers and with focus group insights, how mission-driven organizations can connect more deeply with this increasingly influential group.
