If You Missed The Everything Tech Providers Wished You Knew About Writing A Website RFP Conference Session At NTEN, You’re In Luck…

Wouldn’t it be nice to have enough confidence to know if the proposal you get from tech providers is a meaningful bid or just a bunch of techy BS?

Adaptistration People 063It just so happens that I presented a session at the 2018 NTEN conference on that very topic back in April. If you wanted to attend but weren’t able to go, then you’re in luck thanks to the session getting picked up by the 2018 National Arts Marketing Project Conference in Seattle, WA which runs Nov. 9-12, 2018.

Preliminary info is available at the NAMP website but the bit you really want to firmly wedge in your noggin is registration opens June 27, 2018.

Joining me for the presentation is my co-presenter, Ceci Dadisman. We’re already neck deep in slack chats working out content and presentation tweaks so it’s even better suited for arts marketers.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
