How to inspire action at your next event

Courtesy of my organization, Network for Good, here are three ways to inspire action at your next event. If you want more tips, check out our free eBook on great events here.

1. Live testimonial: Who has your organization touched? What lives have you changed? Invite that person to share a personal story about how their lives have improved because of your organization – this is your most powerful spokesperson.

2. An inside look: Ask your executive director or someone on your board to share what changes previous supporters have made possible and how your current work will impact the community. Let attendees know that they are a key part of this change.

3. An invitation to do more: Don’t forget to give attendees the opportunity to take action! Invite supporters to join your volunteer team. Ask attendees to share their email addresses on a sign-up sheet so they can receive updates on your work and upcoming events. Your supporters will be inspired and ready to do more, so don’t forget to turn that motivation into action at your event. This is the number one simple thing we forget at an event – to inspire action, you have to ask for it.
