You shouldn't take this workshop. Unless...you believe your camp or conference center makes a powerful impact. In fact, you can stop reading right now. Unless...like Doug, you believe sharing the story of your Ministry and Mission is one of the most important things we do as leaders. In this workshop, you'll look at real-world examples from classic literature, movies, television, sports marketing, and social media, while exploring how to more effectively engage your audience -- campers, parents, staff, congregations, donors -- and strengthen the impact of your messaging. You'll take home easy to implement tips, tricks, and best practices from the fields of psychology, communications, marketing, and fundraising you can put to work, right away, in your speaking engagements, presentations, written appeals, newsletters, and social media posts.
