PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A bi-monthly meeting in Center City is getting non-profit leaders to open up and share limited resources.
Ashley Tobin of Work Better Consultants started Connecting Coffee to get non-profit workers to share ideas and resources and learn to how to network, tasks that are especially important when the economy is struggling.
“Some non-profit professionals don’t have the skills to network; sometimes it’s because there’s not time for it [or] there’s not a venue for it. In other industries there are conferences, so there’s a telecommunications conference and we don’t do that so much in the non-profit world,” says Tobin.
She says the free get-togethers are limited to 15 people each session and you can join the list at connectingcoffee.com.
