Quiet Changemakers: Introverts in the Nonprofit Sector

Original broadcast date: Thursday, June 9, 2016

Summary: So much of what we see and hear in the nonprofit sector appears to be led by outgoing, charismatic, self-promotional social entrepreneurs and innovators. What about the quieter folk in our sector? This recorded webinar, presented by Trina Isakson, explores insights about how quiet changemakers can move important ideas, issues, projects, and careers forward, without exhausting themselves in a world of networking and promotion.

About the presenter

As principal of 27 Shift Consulting, Trina Isakson focuses on two things: deep thinking on the future of the nonprofit sector, and taking sticky projects off the corner of executives’ desks and running with them. Ideally both at the same time. She is also founder of Quiet Changemaker Project and the Do Good Better Podcast, and has taught a variety of university courses on community development and nonprofit governance and leadership. Trina holds an MBA in community economic development from Cape Breton University and a Certificate in Dialogue and Civic Engagement from SFU.


What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!

"I've attended a couple of the one hour webinars. I like that they are positioned from 1-2pm as I can work it into my lunch hour. I also appreciate the materials and the recording being made available afterwards. Please keep them coming!"
