Thinkers & Makers ( is proud to announce the 7th Strategy for Good Workshop for July 28th, 2012, location TBD, from 9:30am to 12pm.

We are piloting a new system for our participant organizations this summer. The July 28th workshop will include TWO types of strategic support and innovation: Brainstorming (free, as always; at workshop) and Strategy 101 (fee based; two sessions).

Brainstrom: FIVE organizations will be assigned a team of brainstormers to tackle 1-2 specific initiatives such as thinking of alternate revenue streams or leveraging social media effectively.

Strategy 101: TWO organizations will be registered, for a fee, to partner with 1-2 professionals from our strategic thinking community for a more focused, in-depth worksession. The team will also meet for a follow-up session at a later date. Areas of focus for this program include the following: Brand Brief development (assets, benefits, differentiated position, key messages); Five Year Strategic Plan (priorities and direction); Social Media Strategy and Plan

Registered organizations will be asked to complete a questionnaire describing their organization and their current strategic branding and marketing challenges.

Participants may register as Brainstormers or as an Organization. More info on each kind of participation at the Eventbrite registration page.

9:30-45am : Coffee and networking
9:45-10am: Introduction and group brainstorm
10am-12pm: Team workshops – each organization is assigned a team of brainstormers to tackle their specific challenges.

Beyond the usual awesome coffee and pastry networking extravaganzaa that will kick-off our morning, we have an exciting service being offered by a new partner:
A professional photographer will be on-hand throughout the morning, with lights and backdrop, to take FREE headshots. These are valuable for use in communications such as newsletters and emails, as well as on your website and LinkedIn profile!
If you are interested in having headshots taken, please wear something professional-ish other than a plain white shirt (or you’ll dissaapear against the background).

Please register, and sign up to be on the mailing list and receive info as we organize the event!

We look forward to working with you!
