5 BBCON Sessions You Won’t Want to Miss
BBCON is Blackbaud’s annual technology conference for the global social good community. It will be taking place October 12-15, and this year’s event will be completely virtual. Registration is free and there is no need to travel, so it’s never been easier to attend and enjoy some informative and inspiring content.
The Charity Dynamics team has been eagerly reviewing the list of this year’s sessions, and we found these five sessions you shouldn’t miss.
How Blockchain Is Revolutionizing the Social Sector
This session promises to cut through the hype and discuss real use cases on how blockchain can provide increased revenue, financial efficiency, and better service delivery for nonprofits.
How SMS Has Helped One Organization Raise $8M
In this session, you can look forward to taking a deep dive into one recent successful SMS fundraising campaign and taking away new ideas for your organization’s own SMS initiatives.
The Great Reset: Recent Trends and the Road Ahead
In this session, Blackbaud’s Ashley Thompson will dive into the trends that can help us better understand how philanthropy weathers major changes and share data points that lead to clues to what we can expect on the road ahead.
Bring Your Mission to Life with Your Digital Experience
But as these digital experiences continue to evolve, they also present a new way to educate participants and inspire them to fundraise. In this session, experts from Charity Dynamics and MD Anderson Cancer Center will share how MD Anderson kept its mission front and center for the Boot Walk to End Cancer.
Picture This: A Story of Data Visualization
This year’s BBCON includes a number of promising data-focused sessions, but this one caught our eye because we believe in the power of data storytelling to refocus priorities and transform organizational cultures. In this session you will receive an overview of how data visualization works. You will also hear the story of how the Eastern Michigan University Foundation successfully transitioned to visual analytics and what happened when its fundraising data suddenly became more accessible and transparent.
