My NextGen:Charity 2011 Interviews, Part IV

I’ve got my last three HD video interviews from the NextGen:Charity conference last November. Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio was a media sponsor, so I got excellent, insightful commentary from the 12 inspiring speakers I interviewed.

Here are the previous posts:

Part I with the founder of Craigslist and CraigConnects, Mr. Newmark, urging simple, consistent messages to donors; Peter Thum, founder of Ethos water, on radical ideas and perseverance; and DoSomething.org‘s Aria Finger with ways to draw teens to your cause.

Part II with Wali Collins encouraging a regretless life; positive communications with Sharyn Abbott; and Charles Best on connecting donors to their causes. He’s the CEO of DonorsChoose.org.

Part III with Rachael Chong from Catchafire.org on meaningful volunteering; Marc Ecko, the clothing magnate, on branding; and Neil Strauss with fundraising tips generated from the art of seduction.

Here’s what’s new this week:

  1. Innovation in social change, and the leadership to envision it and drive it forward. She’s the founder and CEO of Global Citizen Year. She urges you to, “Continue dreaming.” My interview with Abby Falik.
  2. His site is his credo: Live In Wonder. He wants you to pursue your hero’s journey. His journey took him across the country, meeting about 200 of the world’s most influential and powerful people over a cup of coffee, and learning amazing lessons. The Journey is his Disney documentary that tells the story. My interview with Eric Saperston.
  3. Lessons on motivation and innovation from this director of the X Prize Foundation. Be audacious! Make space to dream! My interview with Jaykumar Menon.

My NextGen:Charity 2011 Interviews, Part III

Here are three more HD video interviews from the NextGen:Charity conference last November. Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio was a media sponsor and I got really thoughtful and insightful commentary from the 12 speakers I interviewed. Part I is here and Part II is here.

This is what I have for you this week:

  1. Make volunteering meaningful and accessible. There are highly skilled, busy people who want to help nonprofits. At Catchafire.org, which she founded and leads, they recognize that and make the connections. My interview with Rachael Chong.
  2. Branding–and other business lessons applicable to charities–from the founder of the very consistent brand, Ecko Enterprises. My interview with Marc Ecko.
  3. Nonprofit tips from the art of seduction and attraction, learned when he was on assignment for Rolling Stone to go undercover in a secret society of pickup artists. “Don’t open with your close.” His book is “The Game.” My interview with Neil Strauss.

My NextGen:Charity 2011 Interviews, Part II

Last month Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio had the privilege to media sponsor the NextGen:Charity conference. I interviewed a dozen prominent people, eleven of whom were speakers.

Each is inspiring, entertaining and a teaching moment. Last week I posted the first three. Here are three more, in high def video.

  1. He’s a stand-up comic on Comedy Central, ABC, NBC and the rest of TV. We talk about his book, “The Y’Nevano Book of Encouragements.” Watch, and you’ll learn how to pronounce that title. He wants you to live a regretless life. My interview with Wali Collins.
  2. Positive communication techniques, and she reads my face (yes, that’s right) to discern my communication preferences. Her book is “Mixing It Up: The Entrepreneur’s New Testament.” My interview with Sharyn Abbott.
  3. Connecting donors to the causes they support, when the two might be half a world away. That’s what happens at DonorsChoose.org, where teachers post their classroom needs and donors respond from anywhere. He is DonorsChoose.org’s CEO. My interview with Charles Best.
