Click. Click. Done. #Tactical Was A Hit At #19NTC

What a treat to learn the Click.Click.Done. Must-Have Google Analytics Settings tactical session was a big hit with attendees at the 2019 Nonprofit Technology Conference (#19NTC). The session produced a 97 percent overall satisfaction rating!

Adaptistration People 034Many thanks to Ash Shepherd, Chief Program Officer and the entire Nonprofit Technology Network team that made all the work preparing for and executing the session as efficient as possible. I’d like to offer a special shout out to the AV sub-contractor; they were among the most prepared, friendly, supportive, and engaging AV professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

While I’ve been giving both solo and co-panelist versions of this session for nearly a decade, the real benefit is the material is constantly updating. Meaning, it’s the topic that never goes out of style and there never a shortage of nonprofit managers who will benefit from the material on the first go-around or as a refresher a few years down the road.

Participant Feedback

Attendees certainly helped reaffirm the session’s long term value:

I think this tactical session was the most useful info I’ve gotten from the conference so far. I’d suggest more tactical session time in the future. Two sessions was not enough. There were so many more I wanted to attend! Loved it

Well organized, great pace, practical advice, and great checks for understanding.

SO MUCH good info! Thank you for the step-by-step, this is invaluable!

Already implemented a bunch of things he showed in the session. This is great.

Super efficient. Super informative. Loved it.

Drew was a very good presenter, very engaging. I think his point about more table space for tactical sessions is a good idea for future conferences.

I really enjoyed this session. It just needs to be longer.

Great speaker!!

These tactical sessions were something new for NTEN and from what I’ve seen in other session feedback results, it was a huge hit with attendees. I published a post back in January about the initiative so if you’re involved with conference planning at a service or serve on a planning committee, I can’t recommend enough that you consider this model.

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.
