Memories of IFC 2017

November 20, 2017

Thanks to the Resource Alliance, UK for the marvelous IFC 2017 (International Fundraising Congress). 

Truly international – and risk-taking.

Imagine talking with colleagues all over the world... And you can always find and connect with people in the dining rooms reserved for IFC participants. Just sit anywhere… Perhaps you’ll be talking with Chinese and South African colleagues. Fundraisers and executives from Nigeria, Argentina, Slovakia, Thailand, Singapore, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, France, Autralia, Turkey, Jordan, Pakistan, Czech Republic, Germany…. And more….

Here are some wonderful highlights… To inspire and challenge you and me over and over…

Ahmen…Fundraiser and rapper…This is my favorite plenary session. Beautiful. Angry. Hopeful. Speaking out. Challenging us.

I did a 6-hour masterclass called “Changing Your Organization for Greater Impact.” Here’s my video promo for the masterclass. (People came up to me at the conference — whom I didn’t know — saying that they liked my ad.)

Have you ever seen live graphic documenting during meetings or presentations? It’s marvelous. And the IFC has this happening… First in 2016, I think. And again in 2017. And I hope forever!!!

This is the graphic facilitation (by Housatonic) for my masterclass. You can see many more IFC drawings on Facebook.
