Meet Up

At this Lean Content event, find out from the esteemed Beth Kanter the benefits behind content curation and how to apply the practice for your own organization's goals. Beth says, content curation is the process of sifting through information on the web and organizing, filtering and making sense of it and sharing the very best content with your network. Rather than another potential recipe for information overload, content curation can actually be a method to tackle this problem. With so much information coming at us from social networks, websites, emails, and other digital sources, we can no longer afford to just whine about it – content curation can empower us to win the battle over too much information.

In this session you’ll hear from expert Beth Kanter about how content curation helps builds staff expertise and reduces information overload.

Some takeaways:
•Three top benefits of content curation for nonprofits
•Understand the practice of good content curation
•Techniques for being efficient and staying focused
