  • Stop time, leave our normal lives.

    Dan PallottaDan Pallotta is the founder of Pallotta TeamWorks, which invented the multiday AIDSRides and Breast Cancer 3-Days. He is the president of Springboard and author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential.

    Efficiency vs. EffectivenessWhat is your cost per dollar raised? Often it is the key question for our boards and the media. Dan Pallotta disagrees. In his book Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, Pallotta challenges our assumptions. He argues for measures not of efficiency, but rather effectiveness. Dan is an industry changer and contrarian you cant afford to miss hearing.

    A New Era for Voluntarism Act IITwenty-five years ago Anne Golden organized a landmark conference called A New Era for Voluntarism. Leaders from across Canada discussed and debated the future of Canadas voluntary sector and the forces that would shape it. Fast forward to 2011. Has Canadas voluntary sector lived up to its promise and potential? What do the next twenty five years hold? And what kind of leadership will be needed to propel our sector forward? Join one of Canadas foremost economic and social trend watchers to learn what might be in store for our collective future.


  • The next big thing is

    Its time for reinvention

    Paul AlofsPaul Alofs was an entertainment industry leader, working as President of HMV Music Stores and later BMG Music Canada, and more recently as General Manager and Executive Vice President of 500 Disney Stores in North America. He was named the Music Industry Executive of the Year in 1996. Pauls life was touched by cancer and in 20(??) he decided to bring his marketing and leadership expertise to fundraising and has overseen the growth of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation from (insert number) to (insert current fundraising dollars).

    Reinventing FundraisingPaul is rethinking how charities operate. His marketing approach has transformed the Princess Margaret Foundation. Paul is a leader who has not been afraid to take risks. He has embraced new models of giving and cancer patients at Princess Margaret are seeing the rewards of his daring. Pauls approach is different and his delivery direct. Dont miss hearing from one of our industrys leaders.

    Jaime WattJaime Watt helped revolutionize politics and now helps politicians, business and voluntary sector leaders navigate their way through complex communications issues. As Executive Chairman and Senior Partner of Navigator Ltd., hes a master in his field and you wont want to miss his strategic advice.

    Wants vs. NeedsWhat people want, they get, right? Its not that simple. Often we provide our donors what we think they want, but its not what they need. Matching what we do with what donors need takes focus, determination, leadership and a remarkable ability to understand your target audience and how theyll respond. Jaime will share perspectives (based on recently published research), on how to influence public opinion and how critical that is to the future of charitable sector. Its crucial advice in these changing times.

  • Its time for commitment.

    Rahul SinghWe all rely on paramedics acting quickly to save lives. Rahul Singh understands this. He is a paramedic who took his training and applied it globally to create GlobalMedic, a humanitarian relief organization that provides disaster relief in areas affected by natural disasters or complex emergencies. For his work, Singh was named to the 2010 Time 100listofTheWorldsMostInfluentialPeople.

    Act NowRahul Singh saw a better way to act quickly and save lives. He applied what he was trained to do in Toronto internationally and is now a global paramedic. Rahul will talk about creating a group of change agents; first responders who, like him, are ready at a moments notice to travel to areas of devastation. Hear Rahul tell us how hes built a global force of change agents who act now!
