New Executive Leadership Track

We’re pleased to introduce a brand new Executive Leadership Track at Reach this year! C-level executives who register for Reach will have access to this exclusive track that will include a stimulating lineup of sessions tailored to the needs and interests of today’s leaders. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with your peers from all over the country while learning from other successful leaders.

If you’ve ever visited Daxko’s office space, checked out our culture blog, or heard Dave speak, you know culture is important at Daxko. Our unique culture is more than sleek office design, relaxed dress code, and free Friday lunch. Daxko’s culture is our single greatest competitive advantage. Join Dave for discussion on why culture comes first for successful executive teams.

Dave Gray | Daxko President & CEO

A recent post on Forbes magazine touted top qualities that make a great leader. Of course there’s honesty, delegation, communication, confidence, commitment, and humor, among others. One that was conspicuously missing from this bloggers’ list is courage. It takes courage to make tough decisions that you know are the right thing for the organization, but come at the cost of upsetting a staff member, board volunteer, or sometimes an entire community. Yet those decisions must be made for a healthy organization. Join Tom to share ideas and real life examples of facing the “brutal facts” and finding the courage to take action.

Tom Massey | SVP of Daxko T2 Consulting

Engagement can mean a lot of things to a lot of people, but it can be very specific and even measurable. Intentional engagement requires vision, planning, execution, and accountability…just like most disciplines do. Intentional engagement also brings a nice return on your investment. If your organization is all about building the kinds of relationships that change lives and transform communities, you need to be able to scale those efforts in order to have any significant impact. During this session Lori will walk executives through the vision and planning required for intentional engagement, followed by recommendations on tools and processes to make your engagement programs successful.

Lori Swann | Director of Membership, Daxko T2 Consulting

After going through tough economic times, donors are digging in deeper with the organizations they really care about as opposed to broadening their philanthropic “portfolio.” Our best prospects are those donors who already love us and who are giving under their capacity. Retention and upgrades are more important that identifying new donors each year. Transformational gifts typically result from donors with steady and increased giving over time. In this session Julie will share how several clients are seeing great success as they go deeper rather than wider with their fundraising efforts.

Julie Sistrunk | Financial Development Consultant, Daxko T2 Consulting

As the needs of communities change, building design needs to change too. But investing in a new facility, expansion, or redesign of interior spaces can be a costly proposition, so you can’t risk missing the mark. Rod and his team will be on hand to share the trends they are seeing in the field, and share ideas on how to capitalize on your current assets, and where to make smart investments for the future.

Rod Grozier | Director of Facility Development & Design Consulting, Daxko T2 Consulting
