Does a virtual event campaign seem overwhelming to you? It shouldn’t! This workshop will highlight what the team at Fladeboe Advancement has learned from conducting 100 virtual events since March 2020.

You’ll leave the session with a better understanding of key strategies needed to set yourself up for success (hint: much of it doesn’t have to do with the virtual program itself). We’ll share examples of several organizations that have done an outstanding job of implementing these strategies and have an extended time at the end of the presentation to address your pressing questions.
