As it turns out, the event was as optimistic, informative, inspirational and enjoyable as anything I’ve ever attended. I will always brag on the board I serve on, The Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR for short), and since Bettina Swigger was facilitating this event, it was highly organized, highly efficient, and just damn good!
Here is my Facebook live blog from the event. I’ve deleted the like buttons, but I’ve included Rudolph’s comment with his permission since it was highly relevant, and just plain dead-on.
Imagination Celebration presents the Dragon Hat, as the Protector of the Jewels of the Kingdom.
Okay, what are my takeaways from this?
Bettina reposted the ten rules for turning organizations around. This is for the arts world, understand. How many of these are pure gold for entrepreneurs, businesses, relationships, etc? I think most of them:
1.) Someone must lead
2.) The leader must have a plan
3.) You cannot save your way to health
4.) Focus on Today & Tomorrow, not yesterday
5.) Extend your programming calendar
6.) Marketing is more than brochures and advertisements
7.) There must be only one spokesman and the message must by positive
8.) Fund-raising must focus on the larger donor, but don’t aim too high
9.) The board must allow itself to be restructured
10.) The organization must have the discipline to follow the rules
Here are some more perspectives on the event. My brother’s CC Classmate Matthew Schniper provided this on the Indy:
And Tracy Mobley-Martinez offered this at the Gazette:
I’m still processing this, but I for one do not think that this content extends to just arts organizations. I think a lot of this will hit home with any entrepreneur:
1.) Marketing is more than advertisements and brochures.
2.) You are what you program.Extend your programming calendar.
3.) Inclusiveness builds tribes, communities and families… and a permission asset that is extremely loyal
4.) You can’t stop taking risks when the going gets rough
5.) Positive. Proactive. Educating. These are synonyms that describe any business worth talking about.
