About the Presentation

John will be conducting a Q&A with Diana Montoya on "Entrepreneurial Leadership for Non-Profit Organizations."

Non-profit organizations need to maintain an entrepreneurial mindset in order to survive and thrive. That’s not easy. Learn how entrepreneurial leadership can help a nonprofit organization maximize its missional impact. Further, business leaders and entrepreneurs are more inclined to support organizations that align with their values. This session will be of interest both to supporters of NPOs who will develop greater clarity regarding the types of organizations they may wish to support and to leaders of NPOs who will be able to reflect on best practices for running their organizations.
