Social Finance: How to Understand, Inspire and Persuade Funders
Julia Dhar, Principal at Boston Consulting Group and Vilas Dhar, Social Impact Investor
Register here for the open session October 25th 6pm-7:30pm
Register here for the full course: October 25th-27th
Through this course, we will develop an understanding of the motivations and incentives that make us great leaders, as well as the biases, fears, and loss aversion which keep us from performing at our capacity. We will apply these skills to one of the most difficult challenges a social changemaker can face – identifying and persuading funders to support their mission. We will discuss potential groups of funders, their motivations and interests, and develop a common financial literacy so we can understand what matters most to traditional philanthropists, impact investors, granting agencies and others.
Marketing and Open Leadership
Simon Cohen, Founder Global Tolerance
Register here for the open session November 15th 6pm-7:30pm
Register here for the full course: November 15th-17th
This course covers the latest thinking around social communication – and how to lead the conversations about our work. We will explore our personal visions and values, and how to integrate them into the lifeblood of our social enterprises. Through case studies and stories featuring the world’s leading social changemakers, we will learn how to manage the media, communicate a message clearly, speak to the public, and spark inspirational coverage for our activities.
