I feel really inspired! I just finished up the Social Media Strategy Game workshop with EPIP Chapter leaders. EPIP stands for Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy. The organization's goal is to strengthen the next generation of grantmakers, in order to advance effective social justice philanthropy. They provide professional networking, professional development, leadership development and advocacy.
What I enjoyed most was the creative spirit that comes from a comfort level with technology. The game uses a deck of cards to help a group to brainstorm a social media strategy. This prevents making tool-based decisions. An example of this creative spirit was when one group created a new card on a napkin.
I had a chance to listen in on other trainings, which included some techniques for creating a recruitment culture - where chapters can reach out to new members and draw them in - face-to-face networking. The techniques of face-to-face networking strategies are very much transferable to online tools. In fact, you need these skills to really reap the benefits of your professional online network.
I used the wiki a flip chart - so the leave behind is the slide deck, notes, and a few resources.
