Learn the principles that help organizations communicate their purpose, character, and culture; gain an understanding of how mission driven design can positively impact communications and relationships. Hosted by Lorain County Social LEAP and the SBDC at Lorain County Community College.

Every day, meaningful causes are trying to rise above the noise and be heard. Is your voice one of those? Mission-driven design is a framework for understanding how your organization’s purpose, character, and culture help create its unique personality and distinctive voice.

Raise-Your-Voice-150pxThe resolutions in the Cause Communications Manifesto are 12 timeless strategic, inspirational, relational, and aspirational principles for better communications. Together they provide your nonprofit with the foundation for inspiring your audiences and connecting them with your mission and impact.

Participants will gain an awareness of the principles of mission-driven design, and insights into how the Manifesto principles can positively impact their communications and supporter relationships.

This seminar will help executive directors, communication and development directors, board members, grant and program managers, and related nonprofit staff become more effective communicators.

This event is sponsored by the Lorain County Social Leap Partners: The Nord Family Foundation; Community Foundation of Lorain County, Foundation Center Cleveland; Leadership Lorain County, Ohio Small Business Development Center at Lorain County Community College; and Action Coach.

Feedback from Peers and Past Attendees:

"Attending the Raise Your Voice seminar with Brian Sooy was a valuable investment of my time. Based on the principles found in Raise Your Voice: A Cause Manifesto, I found the information and interactive setting to be thought-provoking, practical and inspiring!  I highly recommend all nonprofit leaders to attend with their teams.  The principles discussed are relevant to the issues of today’s world and inspired me to think of innovative new methods and ideas to communicate effectively with my team, those we serve, and those who support our mission."

"Best program I've attended since I started in the field seven years ago."

"I need to inform my board about the need to make these practices part of our strategic plan."
