Our afternoon keynote speaker Beth Kanter is a well-established international leader in nonprofits’ use of social media.  Her keynote speech, “Be Networked, Use Measurements and Learn from Your Data,” promises to be thought-provoking as well as one of the most interactive keynote speeches you’ve ever heard!

Her first book “The Networked Nonprofit,” introduced the sector to a new way of thinking and operating in a connected world. Her second book, “Measuring the Networked Nonprofit,” is a practical guide for using measurement and learning to achieve social impact. She is the author of Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media, considered the go-to source for how nonprofits can use networks and social media for social change.

Beth has over 30 years working in the nonprofit sector in technology, training, and capacity and has facilitated trainings for nonprofits on every continent in the world (except Antarctica).

Named one of the most influential women in technology by Fast Company and one of the BusinessWeek’s “Voices of Innovation for Social Media,” Beth is Visiting Scholar at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation 2009-2013.
