Session Descriptions

Make the Case for Health Care Philanthropy to Foster Ally Engagement

Vibrant health care philanthropy depends upon the engagement of key allies including health care executives, board members, physicians and clinicians. This session explores the rationale for philanthropy as a valuable source of revenue, uncovers how philanthropy can be an engine for advancing relationships and demonstrates how philanthropy can and must be integrated against other strategic priorities of the health care organization. Ultimately, this session aims to give you the case to motivate, move and inspire allies to get meaningfully involved.

Build an Effective Collaboration with your CEO and CFO

Too many CEOs and CFOs perceive health care philanthropy as a secondary priority. However, the ownership and leadership of engaged executives can unleash access to resources and relationships that are essential to optimize performance. This session provides and overview of the issues and then gets granular on specific things to do to enhance your relationship with leadership today.

Collaborate with Leadership Volunteers to Advance Philanthropy

Community leadership volunteers on boards, councils and committees bring influence that is not duplicated anywhere else in the health care organization. This session explores the unique elements of competitive advantage enjoyed by volunteer leaders and specific ways to tap into getting them educated and activated in advancing philanthropy.

Explore the Science of Gratitude & Rethink the Path to Grateful Engagement

New and emerging insights on the science of gratitude are a call for many to pivot in their approach to the engagement of grateful patients and family members. This session explores the science and psychology of the grateful engagement, uncovers keys to building an organizationally-aligned and integrity-based partnerships with health care executives, physicians and clinicians and shares a framework for operationalizing a better approach to grateful engagement.

Prepare for New Frontiers Ahead (Trends & Issues)

Organizations must rise to meet the road ahead. This session explores emerging trends, issues and opportunities impacting health care philanthropy so you are ready not just for what is “now” but what is “next.”
