We’re bringing the best marketing professionals in Hawaii together to share the inside secrets of marketing a nonprofit organization.

Lunch will also be provided along with networking and admission to the team presentations and the after party. This is the best investment you can make in yourself and non profit organization!
This year’s workshop theme is based upon how you can know your story, then publish and share your story, and finally pitch your story to be covered by the media. We have 3 amazing workshops lined up:
Workshop 1: 9:30am to 11am
Getting your Ducks in a Row:
Structuring Nonprofit Marketing
Speaker: KC Collins
The catch phrase is, ‘let’s think outside the box’ when it comes to marketing and communications. The one little piece folks seem to forget is you need to build your box first! In this session we will talk about basic parts of the philanthropy ‘box’ before getting creative with strategies. Let’s get your ‘ducks in a row’ and then step off into a viable marketing strategy. Without doing your homework first, your marketing plan is bound to have lackluster results.
Marketing: A Strategic Approach
Speaker: Andrew Jackson
Marketing your non-profit is a certainly a mix of art and science, but approaching your communications challenges with a clear methodology based on strategy will help deliver consistently positive results. This session lays out a clear framework for developing your next marketing program. We’ll cover the development of your positioning, brand and marketing strategies and how they differ as well as the process that moves you from strategy to asset development and ultimately customer acquisition. The review of real-world case studies in this session will bring the concepts we are covering to life.
Workshop 2: 11:15am to 12:45pm

Speaker: Toby Tamaye
Why is Facebook and Instagram the primary social media in Hawaii, and what type of content are people looking for? How do you attract social media influencers to engage and support the initiatives of your organization? What are the current trends in activating younger adults using social media? How can I use social media to promote events? Learn more about these and other topics from one of Hawaii’s top social media strategists.
