October Chapter Lunch – Are They Buying What You’re Selling? Using Your Value Proposition to Reach Shareholders

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
11:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

McCormick & Schmick’s Restaurant 
17 West County Center Dr.

314-835-1300

Join SLSAE on Tuesday, October 17 for lunch at McCormick & Schmick’s and be inspired to take a closer look at how your value proposition is viewed and how it connects with your shareholders.

One sales pitch rarely convinces all possible partners, clients, or customers. Does your organization change up the way it presents your good works and services to different audiences? Sometimes even your closest friends and supporters can’t explain how your programs and services create value for the community and for your partners. And if people don’t realize the value of your work, it’s that much harder to achieve your mission.

So what do we do about it? Join SLSAE and Christy Maxfield, MBA, CFRE, President & CEO, Purpose First Advisors at our luncheon on Tuesday, October 17.

Using tools like the business model and value proposition canvases, Christy will help us:

  • Unpack our assumptions about which of our organization’s value propositions resonate with our stakeholders, 
  • Clearly communicate the most meaningful information to each audience. This session will use case studies to explore how your organization can test value propositions to find the right audience fit and help improve program outreach and goals.

Chapter Lunch – Meetings Mean Business: Healing the Pain of Unproductive Meetings

Speaker: Trish Dervin, CCMC, CELDC, President, Career Conversions

A recent study from the National Statistics Council reported that 37% of employee time is spent in meetings and 47% of employees consider too many meetings to be the biggest waste of time, more than social media or email!

Isn’t it a shame that most of us have come to accept that the activity which is most central to running our organizations is so inherently painful and unproductive? Meetings are critical to forging relationships, creating ideas, and making the decisions that drive business. So, the question is this, if we think meetings are boring and such a waste of time, then how can we be making good decisions and successfully lead our organizations?
