design thinking mattersBrian Sooy presented "Design Thinking Matters: Strategic Communication is Not Enough" to the National Council of Nonprofits’ Network Learning Confab, 2015, in Lexington Kentucky on June 24, 2015.

Organizations effectively raise their voice when they nurture a culture of communication. This session explored how four dimensions of communication align your State Association’s purpose, character, culture, and voice; and how strategic design connects your strategy, message, and mission with your members and advocates.
