Impact Workshop: Making Your Metrics Dance

April 23, 8:00 am-11:00 am

Making Your Metrics Dance: Tools to Strengthen Partnership Building, Donor Relationships, and Community Impact

It’s time we take our organization’s stories to the next level. Your board members, funders, and community authorizers are placing great demands on your organization to prove if your theory of change is having an impact. Whereas measurement dashboards and scorecards have become commonplace nonprofit management tools, there is a disconnect between what we measure and how we build a cogent and compelling narrative about our results. The goal of this workshop, ideal for leadership team members, is to provide you with a set of tools and approaches that will help you position your metrics and express an evolving story that broadens and deepens your relationship with board members, partners, donors, and community advocates. Get tickets here.

During this hands-on workshop, you will explore…

  • Visual and narrative formats for expressing your results
  • Messaging approaches that engage funders in your journey
  • How to connect numbers to story, enabling collective impact
  • Aligning your metrics, message, and brand identity

This workshop is led by Carlo M. Cuesta, managing partner of Creation In Common. Since 2002, the Creation In Common team has been working with nonprofits, foundations, and government agencies on enhancing how organizations engage the public. Carlo has led engagements with the Greater Twin Cities United Way, Scholarship America, Metro Transit, and the Department of Human Services to name a few. In addition to his consulting work he has served as an adjunct instructor at the University of Minnesota and a contributing writer for the Nonprofit Quarterly.

Light breakfast will be served.
