This isn’t your average training.

The training is led by Dan Pallotta.

Dan’s role in transforming the way our culture thinks about giving is a movement anyone working in or associated with the nonprofit sector should be part of. He’s bringing this innovation to nonprofits and their boards through The Bolder Board Training.

Dan invented the multi-day charitable event industry with the AIDSRides and Breast Cancer 3-Days, which raised over half a billion dollars in nine years and were the subject of one of the first Harvard Business School case studies on social enterprise. His 2013 TED talk on philanthropy is one of the 100 most-viewed TED talks of all time. His book, “Uncharitable,” is the best-selling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said that it, “deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto.

How else is it different?

First, traditional board trainings begin and end with issues of governance and fiduciary duty. The Bolder Board Training begins with a counter-intuitive experience for organizations that are serious about impact, and about creating a future based on what’s possible, instead of what has happened in the past.

Second, you’re with a diverse community of board members that cross geography, demography and issues.

What’s the subject matter?

It’s divided into two separate sessions on liberation and innovation. First, we’ll look at the anachronistic constraints under which most nonprofit organizations operate, so that you can become conscious of just how much they hold you and your team back.

In the second part of the training, we’ll take a counter-intuitive look at innovation. We’ll demystify the whole idea of it in a way that makes it much more accessible to you. What you’ll be left with is the opportunity to create a new possibility for your work and your organization and all those you serve.
