Nonprofit Tech HNL (Honolulu, HI) is part of NTEN’s Nonprofit Tech Club program.
This month we are stoked to welcome guest speaker Neenz Faleafine! Neenz will open this second session with a presentation on the The Art of Story Telling (using tech). Then we’ll have some time for group discussion and sharing about free to low-cost tools that can help with implementation.
Born and raised in Hawaii, L.P. “Neenz” Faleafine is the CEO and Community Developer of Faleafine Enterprises, LLC the parent company of digital solutions agency Pono Media, e-commerce subscription lifestyle company Pono Life, e-commerce group Hawaii Traditions Market Place, and soon-to-be launched non-profit, Faleafine Foundation. A self-described “Social Disruptor”, Neenz believes her purpose is to be a light in the world.
Neenz is a nationally recognized practitioner in the application and use of social networks to gather intelligence, build online communities, and use those networks to achieve favorable end results. She began her career building communities as a property manager for her father’s company in some of Hawaii’s toughest neighborhoods. There she learned that the most important commodity of a neighborhood are the people. She focused on understanding and empathizing with residents to build relationships in order to partner with organizations to collaborate on solutions. It is through the strengthening of the people that neighborhoods thrived and communities formed.
