I haven't been real active here on G+ lately (check me on other channels more regularly) but this +TED
talk and the blog accompanying it really strikes a chord with me. As a nonprofit PR/Marketing/Social Business/Innovation gal living and breathing this stuff in #MKE
, I see that innovation and improvements from an infrastructure standpoint are limited by donors' intent. Yet we still do, affect policy change and push forward the best we can (I can only dream what it would be like to have more resources - and we always try to demonstrate results and innovation worthy of support). As someone who is desiring to be most effective with outcomes, efficient from an operations standpoint, raising visibility for the issues and the brand while being innovative implementing business best practices in this sector at a very excellent nonprofit organization (but not on a national scale), its still like swimming upstream all the time. I keep swimming and pushing and...it is tiring. Thank you +Dan Pallotta
for calling this out. Maybe we can catch a wave to open donor minds to asking the right questions of charities who are trying to move the needle in human services through this talk.
