 Keynote: Dan Pallotta


Uncharitable: What if the entire way we’ve been taught to think about charity, philanthropy and change is wrong? What if it’s undermining our true potential to make the difference we dream of making? Dan Pallotta liberates us from the ancient thinking that has been handed down to us about the nonprofit sector. This talk will shift the entire way you think about charity and change, and about exactly what’s possible for you and your organization.
