In 2013, Giving DuPage started programs for Nonprofit Executive Directors, where EDs/CEOs could connect, engage, share best practices and network with peers. The EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR NETWORK is a place for EDs to share their best practices and concerns, with an ED-exclusive audience.

To attend the quarterly the ED Network meetings, you must be an Executive Director for a nonprofit organization serving the DuPage region.

ED Network Program Schedule:

Date:                   Thursday, April 12, 2018
                 8:00 to 9:30 am
Topic:                  “The Brand Called YOU”
Presenter:         Vickie Austin, CHOICES Worldwide
From the orange swirl of the “Tide” box to the Nike “swoosh,” we’re surrounded by brands.  In this brand-conscious world, each of us distinctly develops our own brand, comprised of values, opinions, experience, education—even down to the clothes we wear and the non-profits we represent.  In “The Brand Called YOU” you’ll learn the elements of professional branding and how to use those principles to achieve your own goals. Discover how to use branding as a competitive advantage and ultimately leverage your brand—and the brand of your organization—for success.

Vickie Austin is a business and career coach and founder of CHOICES Worldwide. She offers strategic planning to help people and companies get from where they are to where they want to be. Vickie is also a professional speaker and author of Circles of Gold: Honoring Your Network for Business and Career Success.

Location:         Rev3 Innovation Center – 1120 E. Diehl Road, Naperville (at NIU Naperville campus)
