Networking is complex and unnatural to many of us; however, it’s a necessary skill to have in today’s culture and labor market. With an ever-changing world, networking strategies have adapted including the rise of new emerging technologies; post-pandemic hybrid work models; and increased social anxieties. Reflections on these current trends will helps us as we strive to connect and collaborate with others in our industries or peer groups. Let’s take a deeper dive into networking in 2023!
Meeting the Moment: Philanthropic Trends 2023
Michael Logue, Partner, KCI
Gillian Sneddon, Executive Director, Advancement & Alumni, Fanshawe College
From the global pandemic to climate change, war and political upheaval, the past few years have seen change on every front. As we are all deeply enmeshed in the ‘daily doing’ of our work, and it can be challenging to try to make sense of how philanthropy is evolving in response to larger societal forces. Yet it is important to slow down, take stock and try to answer the question: how can fundraising meet the moment? While challenges and uncertainties are ahead, there are also many reasons for hope and optimism for the charitable sector, and College advancement in particular. How can we collaborate with donors, partners, and communities to realize the future we envision? In this session, KCI’s Mike Logue and Fanshawe College’s Gillian Sneddon will offer insights that will challenge, inspire and perhaps even provoke change in how you and your organization are meeting the moment.
Philanthropic Naming & Value Assessment
Derrick Turner, Vice- President Advancement, Assiniboine Community College
Ibrahim Inayatali, Regional Director of Planned and Legacy Giving, Aga Khan Foundation USA, Associate Consultant Global Philanthropic Inc
Fundraising often involves honoring key supporters and / or donors through naming of spaces, assets or key initiatives. This session will discuss the process of evaluation including what are key considerations when connecting your brand to an external individual or company.
Know your worth: navigating complex donor expectations
Melanie Rogers, Vice President , External Relations, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT)
Donor relationships are more complex than ever before. Donors have more to think about, including personal and business objectives, capitalizing on their own philanthropy, engagement with recipient organizations, and desired outcomes of their executed gifts. As receiving organizations, this means we have more things to think about as well, to ensure the gifts we receive truly serve our organizations and beneficiaries. Melanie is joined by Guy Mallabone, President and CEO of Global Philanthropic Inc. and other guests for this important conversation.
Participants will learn about:

Building from the ground up: Investing in our Alumni and Community
Josie Tan (She/Her), Alumni Relations Officer, Department of Advancement, NorQuest College
Meredith Allan (She/Her), Manager, Strategic Initiatives and Operations, Department of Advancement, NorQuest College
Join the NorQuest College Alumni and Advancement team as we share how, over the past two years, we have reimagined our Alumni program and begun investing in alumni relations at the college. From a ground-up strategic perspective, we will share our journey of how we integrated alumni relations across the college through the lens of collaboration and co-creation.
As we advance through our infancy years, we invite other colleges across Canada to share, learn and lead from where they are by participating in a group discussion to close out the session.
Beyond the profile: turning alumni communications into lasting – and valuable – relationships
Jill Scarrow, Manager, Advancement Communications, Sheridan College
Olivia McLeod, Editor Advancement Communications, Sheridan College
Vitusha Oberoi, Editor, Advancement Communications, Sheridan College
Your successful alumni deserve to be celebrated. But how do you turn the alumni profile into a lasting, fulfilling relationship that benefits your institution and your current students? At Sheridan, we want great content for our website and social channels, but we also aim to use the profile to open the door to building meaningful, engaging relationships that encourage alumni to give back to current students by volunteering, mentoring students, or supporting co-op placements. This session will explain how we work across departments to weave profile development into a strategic process that allows us to meet Sheridan’s needs long after we press ‘publish.’
Be Your Own Consultant: Finding Clarity in Chaos
Janine Foster, Director, College Advancement, Loyalist College, & Associate Consultant, Global Philanthropic Canada Inc
Consultants have a lot of advantages, chief among them is the ability to focus on the problem to be solved – and only that problem. How can we enjoy that luxury? And what would we do with it? This practical session will look at adopting a consultant mindset in our own operations and use the tricks of the trade to tackle the issues that keep us awake at night.
