John is fourteen. His older brother, with whom he is very close, is in jail – his third incarceration. John seems headed in the same direction. His mother is worried about John. She enrolled him in a chess club for inner city youth and is trying to figure out other ways to keep him out of trouble. The chess idea seems promising; he likes his chess mentor and has learned the basics of the game. In his first competitive match, he got creamed. Near to tears, he told his mentor that he just couldn’t do this. His mentor convinced John, this time and many more times, to keep trying… Six years later, John’s mentor received an email from John saying that there was no way he would be a college sophomore in good standing without the confidence he gained in the chess club. When that story was shared at an orientation session at the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, everyone who heard it was ready to donate time and money to the organization that produced the result. Many organizations can demonstrate good outcomes. But those that thrive are the ones that engage their stakeholders with examples that stir the emotions and make clear the storyline. That is what this conference is all about. Helping you tell your story and engage your community. Attend the one conference each year where nonprofits from every corner of the community come together to learn, network and share their stories. And leave with the storytelling tools you need for success!

When not teaching, traveling, or recovering from teaching and traveling, Andy also serves as a Senior Advisor for Civic Ventures and is on the advisory boards of VolunteerMatch and Great Nonprofits. About His Plenary Presentation Ever since we began talking to each other, telling stories has been the most powerful way to capture attention, engage an audience, and motivate them to act. Steadily advancing technology keeps handing us shiny new tools to communicate faster and farther – think iPhones and Twitter to name just two – but in our fervor to remain current (and appear professional) we often ignore our natural inclination to tell a good story. In “Change the Story, Change the World,” Andy Goodman will explain why he believes storytelling remains the single most powerful communication tool you possess, and he will offer specific ways your organization can use stories to advance your mission.

Nonprofit Awards Luncheon

lifetime achievement award

Greatness often emanates from love’s highest perch. Lifted up by a passion for nature, knowledge, art and an equally deep compassion for humanity, greatness sometimes becomes eternal. It is reflected by all whom are touched by it – our words and actions aspire to live up to the influence of its legacy. Christina Lee, “Christy,” and her late husband, Owsley Brown II created that most rare kind of greatness. And we are much the better for it. Christy and Owsley shared their inspiration through the family they raised and the world-class organization Brown-Forman Corporation they managed, as they led our community to become a far better place – especially in our humanity and the things that transform a culture into a civilization.

Pyramid Awards for Excellence will be presented during the luncheon in the following categories: Art of Collaboration Sponsored by Deming Malone Livesay & Ostroff (DMLO) Art of Diversity Sponsored by Fifth Third Bank Art of Governance Sponsored by Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs, LLP Art of Leadership Sponsored by Dean Dorton Allen Ford PLLC Art of Social Innovation Sponsored by Dick & Ardi Wilson Art of Vision Sponsored by Mountjoy Chilton Medley, LLP

Along the way, Owsley’s virtuosity was widely heralded. He and Christy received Greater Louisville Inc’s highest honor, the Gold Cup, in March of 2011 for distinguished service to the city. In June of 2011, Owsley received the Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship in recognition of his philanthropy and preservation work. Among her many causes, Christy led the restoration of the Cathedral of the Assumption in 1985 as she co-founded the Center for Interfaith Relations. It is very fitting that the theme for this year’s Festival of Faiths, a culmination event for the Center, is Sacred Fire: Light of Compassion. The festival will focus on fire as the gift of consciousness enlightened by compassion, which illuminates the way to a life of love and justice. We are sure we speak for the community when we say to Christy that she does not alone bear the weight of the torch she carries. Her faith, family and friends have no doubt expressed like sentiments to her. We want to add the loving wishes of all of those that make up our civic sector that we, too, march along together with her as she and Owsley have faithfully accompanied so many of us. The Center for Nonprofit Excellence therefore wishes to recognize Christy and Owsley Brown II with its Lifetime Achievement award, only the eighth such honor in CNPE’s 11 years of honoring distinguished servant leadership.
