Possibility talks for 2016

 
Uncharitable
The way we’ve been taught to think about charity and change is upside down. If we changed the way we think about charity, charity could change the world. Based on Dan’s book, Uncharitable, the best selling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said it, "deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto."
 
The Why of Innovation
Innovation is all the rage in the business literature these days - how to stimulate it, how to improve it. But why? Why create in the first place? In this powerful talk, Dan explains that great innovation comes from great purpose - from a desire to move humanity forward, no matter what the industry or sector. Ultimately, great innovation comes from love. It’s a profoundly moving oration for corporate and social change audiences. It will leave people thinking differently about thinking differently.
 
Charity Case
It’s time for the humanitarian sector to stand up for itself. In this powerful talk, Dan outlines the need for a national leadership movement for the sector to defend itself, promote itself, and change the way the culture thinks about charity and how change gets made. Based on Dan’s book, Charity Case, which Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. called Charity Case "an Apollo program for American philanthropy and the nonprofit sector.”
 
I'mpossible
I Helped Raise Half a Billion Dollars for Charity and You Can Do Anything You Commit Yourself To As Well.

A life-changing talk about identifying your full self expression, taking responsibility for it, and making your dream projects come true.
Based on Dan’s book,
When Your
Moment Comes.
