Ted and TEDx Talks – The Intersection of Communications and Development

Danna Grant

Director of Donor Relations

The Ohio State University Medical Center

Ruth Milligan




This presentation will review TED, TEDx, what makes those talks so successful; will demonstrate how these kind of powerful short talks can be applied at any institution for a variety of purposes, not the least of which is the cultivation, engagement and stewardship of donors; it will reveal the motivations, support and organization needed for a TED-style event within a university; and the donor engagement opportunities that such a communication strategy can bring.


The Collaborative Approach: Integrating Constituent Communication Through Innovative Brainstorming and Partnerships

Matthew R. D’Oyly

Director of Constituent Communication and Philanthropic Programs

Otterbein University

Shared thinking, shared problem-solving and shared ownership ultimately lead to an integrated constituent communication plan. The collaborative approach has been a game-changer for Alumni Relations and Annual Giving at Otterbein. Learn about what questions to ask, how to build the plan, build trust and create working relationships with partners across campus.


Round Table Discussions 

To conclude the program we will have round table discussions around various communications pieces. We ask that participants bring materials to share/help contribute to the conversations. Examples of communication piece categories include: 
Impact brochure/mailing
Event invitations
Fundraising appeals
Stewardship pieces 
Alumni/donor recognition - holiday cards, birthday cards, others
Campaign materials
