Kill the Sacred Cows: Reimagine, Redesign and Relaunch

Kill the Sacred Cows | Hight Performance Group

In this time of drastic change:

    • How do we objectively evaluate our programming?
    • Can we design programs amidst uncertainty?
    • How we create events that appeal to changing expectations?

If you’re like many other organizations, your events have been postponed or canceled and the future of face-to-face events feel uncertain. It’s difficult to plan programs in the fall and for the year ahead. In the past, when you have reviewed programming and discussed which ones to sunset, it has resulted in turf-protection with employees and board members and there isn’t agreement on how to evaluate programs objectively.

With uncertainty looming and the changing expectations of stakeholders, it’s time to evaluate  what you offer, say goodbye to sacred cows whose time has come and gone, and develop new strategies for designing future programs.

It's time to capitalize on today's challenges

Gain the perspectives and tools to emerge more healthy and sustainable than ever before.

Today’s non-profit organizations face critical decisions and need to navigate major crossroads at every turn including:

    • The impact of COVID-19 on operations and revenue
    • Developing volunteer leaders and effective teams
    • Attracting and retaining investors, sponsors and donors
    • Engaging and providing value to a diverse audience

Although changes in demographics, technology, and competition have created challenges, there are opportunities to deliver on your mission and improve how you serve stakeholders.

These are both ambivalent and exciting times full of opportunities!

This third live session of our Non-Profit Success Strategies Series, in partnership with the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, is relevant and timely whether you are with a Non-Profit, Chamber of Commerce, or Association.
