#14LCS Facilitator Series: Meet Beth Kanter


If you register for NTEN’s first-ever Leading Change Summit this September (#14LCS), you’ll be asked to choose one of three tracks—Digital Strategy, The Future of Technology, or Impact Leadership—and you’ll spend quite a bit of time with your track-mates at the Summit.

That’s why we’re doing our best to recruit a remarkable group of facilitators to help shape your experience. Each track will have two Lead Facilitators and several additional Facilitators who will design spaces and lead small group conversations to make sure that every participant has the chance to both learn and share.

7264499714_d81204c6cf_b.preview.jpgToday we want to introduce you to one of them, recognizing that she needs no introduction to many of you: Beth Kanter, a Lead Facilitator for the Impact Leadership track.

Beth, the author of Beth’s Blog and co-author of The Networked Nonprofit and Measuring the Networked Nonprofit, has spent over 30 years working in the nonprofit sector in technology, training, capacity building, evaluation, fundraising, and marketing. She is an internationally recognized trainer who has developed and implemented effective sector capacity building programs. Beth has been part of the NTEN Community since the beginning and has offered feedback, input, and inspiration as programs evolved and new concepts took shape. She is an incredible example of the NTEN Community spirit, consistently looking for ways to share her experiences and resources to help as many others as possible.

We are incredibly honored to have her continued involvement in the NTEN Community and believe that she brings a valuable leadership of her own to the role of Lead Facilitator in the Impact Leadership track. She is currently working on a number of projects about creating purposeful, engaged events like LCS and is working with the other facilitators already on the exciting workshops and plans for the track.

If you register for the #14LCS and opt for the Impact Leadership track, you’ll join Beth and her co-facilitators to reflect deeply about your work – the challenges you may be facing and the new ideas you hope to explore. And the fun will begin before you arrive: later this summer, you’ll have a chance to begin those conversations with Beth, her co-facilitators, and the rest of the track participants in the MyLCS online discussion forums.
