A WORD FROM THE CHAIR What are the biggest issues you face in the charitable sector today? Do you feel empowered to tackle the challenges we face? The world is moving at a faster pace, our donors are changing, technology is giving us new opportunities to communicate and the press is examining what we do with increasing interest and scrutiny. If you are like most sector leaders, these are issues weighing on your mind. And, like many, I bet you wish you had more time to talk things through with others like you. That’s why we created D3. It’s a one-day leader-to-leader event offering important talks about big issues. At D3 we’ll gather to debate issues, debunk myths and delight each other. It will be a day like no other. Our inaugural event is taking place in Toronto on September 26, at Bell Light Box. Attendance is by invitation only and limited to 120 people. Make sure to reserve your spot today.

Debate. Dan Pallotta: Efficiency vs. Effectiveness Wahn Yoon: Lead With Certainty Debunk. Paul Alofs: Reinventing Fundraising Anne Golden: A New Era for Voluntarism – Act II Jaime Watt: Wants vs. Needs Delight. Rahul Singh: Act Now Sheena Iyengar: The Art of Choosing

Debate. Dan Pallotta Dan Pallotta is the founder of Pallotta TeamWorks, which invented the multiday AIDSRides and Breast Cancer 3-Days. He is the president of Springboard and author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential.

Efficiency vs. Effectiveness What is your cost per dollar raised? Often it is the key question for our boards and the media. Dan Pallotta disagrees. In his book Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, Pallotta challenges our assumptions. He argues for measures not of efficiency, but rather effectiveness. Dan is an industry changer and contrarian you can’t afford to miss hearing.

Walter Thompson, Wahn Yoon was instrumental in developing and launching Ethos, a WPP-owned global consultancy specializing in corporate responsibility strategy. He’s developed branding and marketing programs for organizations around the world. Now he’s a partner in Scientific Intelligence. Wahn attended Harvard University and Columbia University Business School, and is active on numerous boards and associations. Wahn believes we can build maps that lead us to our strategic destination. It’s a journey you won’t want to miss.

Lead With Certainty What qualities make some the best able to lead, in good times and in bad? Wahn Yoon was curious about this. He’s developed a map of what separates those with the qualities needed in times like ours.

Change the way

we think about charity.

Debunk Sponsor

Debunk. Anne Golden Anne Golden has been influencing how Canadians think for many years. She is the President and Chief Executive officer of The Conference Board of Canada and was previously President of the United Way of Greater Toronto. A Member of the Order of Canada, she has also been the author of numerous publications on public policy issues and has received honorary doctorates from University of Western Ontario, Royal Roads University, the University of Toronto, York University, University of Calgary and Ryerson Polytechnic University. She has appeared twice in the National Post’s annual ranking of Canada’s brightest and best women executives. When Anne talks, people listen. Make sure you’re one of them.

A New Era for Voluntarism – Act II Twenty-five years ago Anne Golden organized a landmark conference called A New Era for Voluntarism. Leaders from across Canada discussed and debated the future of Canada’s voluntary sector and the forces that would shape it. Fast forward to 2011. Has Canada’s voluntary sector lived up to its promise and potential? What do the next twenty five years hold? And what kind of leadership will be needed to propel our sector forward? Join one of Canada’s foremost economic and social trend watchers to learn what might be in store for our collective future.

Are you ready for change?

Jaime Watt Jaime Watt helped revolutionize politics and now helps politicians, business and voluntary sector leaders navigate their way through complex communications issues. As Executive Chairman and Senior Partner of Navigator Ltd., he’s a master in his field and you won’t want to miss his strategic advice.

Wants vs. Needs What people want, they get, right? It’s not that simple. Often we provide our donors what we think they want, but it’s not what they need. Matching what we do with what donors need takes focus, determination, leadership and a remarkable ability to understand your target audience and how they’ll respond. Jaime will share perspectives (based on recently published research), on how to influence public opinion and how critical that is to the future of charitable sector. It’s crucial advice in these changing times.

No risk… no reward. Paul Alofs Paul Alofs has lead The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation for the past 8 years, and has helped raise over half-a-billion dollars for cancer research and patient care. His award-winning corporate career – President of HMV Music Canada, President of BMG Music Canada, senior executive at The Walt Disney Company in charge of 500+ retail stores (to name a few positions) – helped the Foundation be recognized as one of Canada’s Ten Most Admired Corporate Cultures in 2010. Marketing is in his blood. Conquering cancer is his personal passion. He’s using both to change the fundraising landscape in Canada.

Reinventing Fundraising Paul is rethinking how charities operate. His marketing approach has transformed the Princess Margaret Foundation. Paul is a leader who has not been afraid to take risks. He has embraced new models of giving and cancer patients at Princess Margaret are seeing the rewards of his daring. Paul’s approach is different and his delivery direct. Don’t miss hearing from one of our industry’s leaders.

Stop time,

leave our normal lives. Rahul Singh We all rely on paramedics acting quickly to save lives. Rahul Singh understands this. He is a paramedic who took his training and applied it globally to create GlobalMedic, a humanitarian relief organization that provides disaster relief in areas affected by natural disasters or complex emergencies. For his work, Singh was named to the 2010 Time 100 list of “The World’s Most Influential People”.

Act Now Rahul Singh saw a better way to act quickly and save lives. He applied what he was trained to do in Toronto internationally and is now a global paramedic. Rahul will talk about creating a group of change agents; first responders who, like him, are ready at a moment’s notice to travel to areas of devastation. Hear Rahul tell us how he’s built a global force of change agents who act now!
