Katie McFadden and Ryan Ozimek (Soapbox Engage) flew to Cape Town to facilitate NPSP Day with Sam Vos and the Connect Consulting team last month. Around 50 nonprofit Salesforce users, admins and consultants gathered in Cape Town, South Africa for a day of peer learning and un-conference activities. This was a tremendous turn out and one of the largest NPSP Day events to date. The local community was eager to meet one another and share their experience and knowledge.
What's an NPSP Day?
NPSP Day is an un-conference style event which facilitates knowledge transfer. We strongly believe that there are no experts and that everyone has experience and perspective to share.
The agenda at this day long event is determined 100% by the people in the room. After discussing what's working, not working and unknown via partner activities, sticky notes and rowdy discussion, we zero in on the topics that folks want to discuss during the rest of the day. NPSP Day DC might focus on political advocacy while NPSP Day Amsterdam might focus on payment processor integrations. Everyone gets their voice heard while we work through burning questions to produce aha moments.
