Meet Media Cause at a Nonprofit Conference

Meet Media Cause as we hit the road this summer! Earlier this year, we wrote about the best nonprofit conferences to consider for 2018. We had a lot of fun (and learned a lot) at Classy’s Collaborative back in June, and enjoyed hosting sessions at RSM and TSNE MissionWorks conferences this Spring. Looking for a nonprofit conference to attend next month? See where our team will be, and what we’ll be talking about!

Youth Leadership Conference

Topic: How to create change at a global scale through digital campaigns
Speaker: Kyle Buetzow, Senior Account Director at Media Cause

The Youth Leadership Conference is a four-day conference led by the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University, where 100 high-achieving high school students learn leadership skills from industry experts and establish relationships with peers from across the United States and Asia to create positive change. During the conference, participants also work in teams of 10 to develop strategies that market and promote social impact messages regarding the global prevalence of Hepatitis B to the public.

Drawing on his life experiences in Peace Corps and now creating scalable impact for nonprofits at Media Cause, Kyle will provide valuable insights regarding how to develop and scale international campaigns and foster partnerships within a community.

During the workshop, Kyle will cover the following topics:
