Setting a gala strategy in light of COVID-19

Change is happening fast!

Since our first talk two weeks ago, new styles of online galas have emerged. 

"Stay in place" policies mean livestreams in a studio are harder to pull-off.  The latest galas are now using different tools. 

I think it's time for a second conversation to review options. 

Topics to cover:

  • The four types of virtual galas being used by nonprofits
  • Examples of pre-recorded virtual galas versus “hybrid” events
  • Exploring "Your Big Why"
  • What needs to change beyond just using new technology

Additionally, I want to continue the conversation on how to ...

  • create connection and community in an age of physical distancing.
  • the most important lessons learned from the trailblazers of virtual galas.
