Nikki Baldwin is a Blackbaud senior product marketing manager and five-time leader of bbcon’s Financial Management track. Below are a few of Nikki’s tips on what makes an inspiring session:
  • Catchy titles are great, but clear descriptions avoid confusion and ensure people are in the right place when your session starts. Make sure your passion for the topic shines through!
  • List the top three to five things you expect attendees to apply to their work in the “Learning Objectives” field. This helps attendees know what to expect.
  • Based on attendee feedback, sessions that add value and provide best practices score very high. Real-world scenarios with relevant examples are well-received.

I am hoping the sequel to “What is a Database Manager (anyway)” gets picked up this year!

@Elizabeth Johnson I am a helper/cheerleader for the group of amazing database superstar speakers proposing this session this year, and it should be an awesome sequel with new answers to that question!

@Sunshine Watson You all were great last year! I would definitely attend again.
