Do you remember what called you to a life of purpose and service?

What continues to call you to keep showing up for your community no matter the adversity?

At the 2022 Nonprofit Leadership Conference on September 28, 2022, you’ll rediscover what drives you and how to harness it to effect lasting change.

Called to Action

The theme for this year’s Nonprofit Leadership Conference is Called to Action.

For nonprofit leaders and organizations, the past few years have challenged and changed us. We’ve dug deeper and pushed boundaries. We’ve reinvented how to fundraise and engage. We’ve experienced immense energy and intense exhaustion.

But leaders like you were called to nonprofit work for times like this.

At the 2022 Nonprofit Leadership Conference, you will reflect on what called you to a life of purpose and renew your commitment to strengthening your nonprofit and community. Equal parts motivation, conversation and education, nonprofit leaders will come together — yes, actually come together in person at the Tampa Marriott Water Street — as champions for change to move our sector and communities forward.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll reveal the impressive line-up of speakers, breakout sessions and activities — all focused on our shared calling and how to move it forward with clarity, courage, and conviction.

In the meantime, get excited to meet your 2022 conference keynote speaker.

Burnout has become one of the most talked-about workplace and life topics, and its impact is far-reaching. But too much of the conversation is focused on the problem rather than what we can do to break free from burnout.

In her best-selling book, “THE AWESOME HUMAN PROJECT,” Nataly Kogan offers proven science-backed and engaging methods to help us break through the cycle of daily burnout and make emotional fitness a number one priority.

Nataly immigrated to the US as a refugee from the former Soviet Union when she was 13 years old. Starting her American life in the projects and on welfare, she went on to reach the highest levels of corporate success at companies like McKinsey & Company and Microsoft, as a managing director at a capital firm, and as a member of the founding team of five startups and tech companies. But after years of chasing a non-existent state of nirvana, Nataly was not only unfulfilled; she suffered a debilitating burnout that led her to find a new way to live and work. Today, Nataly helps Awesome Humans live and work with more connection, joy and meaning. Nataly is a sought-after keynote speaker and has appeared in hundreds of media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, TEDx Boston, SXSW, The Harvard Women’s Leadership Conference, and The Dr. Oz Show. Nataly is also a self-taught abstract artist.
