I’m in Chicago for Blackbaud’s 2010 Higher Education Executive Forum. This is a gathering of executives and senior leaders from some of the most successful higher education institutions to network, share ideas, and connect on the key issues that impact the world of advancement.
There is an Advancement and a Technology track that have some really great presenters from across the higher education sector. On Friday, the keynote session will be given by Adrian Sargeant, the Robert F. Hartsook Professor of Fundraising at Indiana University and holds what is presently the world’s only endowed chair in that discipline.
Later this afternoon, I’ll be giving today’s keynote presentation called “5 Key Trends Transforming Interactive Communication.” This is the next big set of topics I’ll be focusing on at upcoming conferences and events.
