NTC Conversations

We realize that not everyone can attend the NTC, but we strive to provide high-quality content to everyone in our community. This year, we’ll be broadcasting from the NTC to connect those who aren’t in San Jose with some of the presentations and speakers.

All three plenary sessions will be posted daily, and over 30 interviews with NTC speakers will be recorded and posted each day of the NTC. Review the full list of interviews below.

Even if you can’t join us for NTC, you can still benefit from the incredible content!

Day one plenary
Day two plenary
Day three plenary

NTC Conversations will be hosted by Tony Martignetti, the host of Tony Martignetti Nonprofit Radio, Big Nonprofit Ideas for the Other 95%.
