Successful Chapter Meetings Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

As a member based organization, NetHope depends on engaged members. The best engagement occurs when we meet regularly and in person. The European Chapter meeting has proven to be an exceptionally effective collaborative mechanism, bringing together nearly 50 member organization representatives twice per year to share and learn. This successful chapter meeting is driven by local members, who organize and host these meetings without NetHope staff direct involvement.

This workshop is designed to share best practices with those interested in creating and growing their own regional chapter meetings, and to enable those leading these new meetings to replicate and build upon the successes experienced at the European Chapter.

Opening Keynote: Designed for Digital
The digital economy offers a mind-boggling array of threats and opportunities to established organizations. On the one hand, the not for profit sector can seize new approaches to soliciting funds and serving beneficiaries. On the other hand, disrupters to existing models lurk around every corner. How do established organizations redesign themselves to leverage the opportunities of digital? Jeanne will share research conducted by MIT's Center for Information Systems Research which looked at how large, established companies are transforming themselves. We will explore how these findings can be applied to member NGOs.

Led by Amplify 4 Good, the first-ever NetHope Global Summit Innovation Lab is an immersive and intense experience that provides NetHope members the opportunity to learn the mindset, processes, and tools used by top entrepreneurs and social innovators tackling organizational challenges.

Designed to build on the momentum from the Corporate Roundtable and generate innovative ideas ready to be implemented by NetHope member organizations, you’ll form small teams and are taken through a series of sprints to identify types of organizations and roles to help along with their specific pain points, root cause insights, “moonshot” ideas, and their sketches. You’ll then spend time getting real feedback and building a business case for internal implementation. Mimicking the experience of tech startups, the innovation lab culminates with all teams giving a short pitch for their solution.

8 Hour in-depth training session for IT Leadership Challenge (aka CIO Challenge) participants.
Dynamic Leadership: "Dynamic leadership is about creating a compelling and inclusive vision that lasts beyond quarterly goals and gives your team clarity in times of uncertainty. To that end, this workshop teaches leaders how to paint a picture that’s both concrete and inspirational, then effectively communicate their vision throughout the organization so that it gets buy-in and is consistently reinforced. But communicating the vision isn’t enough. To support execution, we equip leaders with tools to create strong team dynamics and set clear goals that keep individuals motivated and accountable"

Social Innovation Immersion Lab Part 2
Limited Capacity seats available

Led by Amplify 4 Good, the first-ever NetHope Global Summit Innovation Lab is an immersive and intense experience that provides NetHope members the opportunity to learn the mindset, processes, and tools used by top entrepreneurs and social innovators tackling organizational challenges.

The challenge? How can NGO's increase assessments data-sharing to improve response time during disasters by the year 2020?

Designed to build on the momentum from the Corporate Roundtable and generate innovative ideas ready to be implemented by NetHope member organizations, you’ll form small teams and are taken through a series of sprints to identify types of organizations and roles to help along with their specific pain points, root cause insights, “moonshot” ideas, and their sketches. You’ll then spend time getting real feedback and building a business case for internal implementation. Mimicking the experience of tech startups, the innovation lab culminates with all teams giving a short pitch for their solution.
