This is both a lot of fun and quite usable: a winning combination in my book.
The 12th annual SPIN Academy is in the books. Once again, dedicated social change activists gathered with expert trainers for some serious communications skills-building and networking in an atmosphere that has been described as “summer camp for progressives.” It was, in short, a blast.
Last week was my eighth SPIN Academy, and my return as event organizer—my colleague Holly Minch, with whom I planned this year’s event, has been at it even longer, having helping found the event back in 1999. Planning SPIN Academy reminded me what a privilege it is to work with people who are so passionate about their work. It also put me in a nostalgic mood, as I reflected on how dramatically things have changed—and what has remained the same—in the field of strategic communications for nonprofits.
