On Wednesday, August 24th, I will be co-presenting a workshop titled Getting Smart About Smartphones. We will be sharing the experiences of our clients, and telling nonprofit leaders what they need to know before bringing smartphones into their technology mix. This event is free for nonprofit organizations, but you should still register to reserve your space. Learn more on NPower Northwest’s website.
