There’s something to be said for taking work seriously. There’s also something to be said for havin’ a little fun while you’re doing it. Beaconfire is taking South by Southwest Interactive (SxSWi) by storm, and not just in The Beacon Lounge – a lounge with a conscience – where nonprofit professionals can take a breather, connect, caffeinate and cool off with some cold beer.
This year, 5 members of the Beaconfire team are presenting on topics that will help make your organization more efficient and effective — and have a blast doing it.
Check out the lineup:
