How to create products and business lines that resonate with what matters to your members/customers

10 things every leader should challenge
Forbes
History is useful for many things, but the experience and wisdom acquired from days gone by should be a springboard to the future, not an excuse for living in the past. Smart leaders simply don't waste precious resources on refining initiatives — they invest in reimagination efforts.

Are your conferences still delivering?
Association Adviser
As association professionals, we have lots of clever ways to talk to members through our communications and live events, but are we really listening to what they have to say?

By Alex Lim
Internet technology over the last decade has allowed working professionals to further their learning opportunities right in the comfort and privacy of their homes.

Nonprofits need to compete for top talent
Harvard Business Review Blog Network
The nonprofit sector is facing a massive talent shortage, which makes scaling a social enterprise extraordinarily difficult.

Managing social media campaigns
Social Fish

Managing social media campaigns is much harder than, for example, managing email marketing campaigns as marketers need to engage with people on social media platforms and they must maintain this engagement. Marketers need to update content regularly, remove unwanted content, reply to comments and also engage with content that fans and followers have put up to successfully manage social media campaigns.
