Not Impossible Labs
I love that Collaborative isn’t your typical conference. The speakers are engaging, the venues are unique, and there were many useful takeaways. Most conferences I leave exhausted from presentations that didn’t capture my full attention but I leave Collaborative exhausted (in a good way) from learning new ideas and meeting great people. I leave energized to take on the important work we’re all doing.”
Laura Cooke, Director of Leadership Annual Giving
The interactive workshops and networking opportunities provided a rich and engaging environment, fostering meaningful connections and leaving me inspired and energized to implement new ideas in my own work. Or, from a human: We committed. Collab’ed. Now we’re going to go figure it out.”
James Murphy, Development Manager - Peer to Peer
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
What I love about attending Collaborative is that the Classy team and presenters truly want to help and make their products better so we can do our important mission work. I also love having the opportunity to hear from and connect with other organizations, large and small. While we all have different focus areas, the problems we face are similar, and Collaborative offers a unique space to work through those challenges together.”
