Periscope for Nonprofits

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

6:00p.m. – 6:30p.m. Socializing

6:30p.m. – 8:00p.m. Discussion

Live streaming has been recently thrust into the limelight with the release of Periscope–a free mobile app that allows any user to livestream and broadcast from wherever they are. How do you know if Periscope is right for your nonprofit and if it is, how can you use it effectively?

In this session, we’ll explore the how-tos of Periscope, what’s good about it, what’s not so good, and show clear examples of how you can leverage the app to better communicate with your donors and supporters.
