TEDTalk-er Pallotta coming to C-K


On April 25, nonprofit TEDTalk guru Dan Pallotta will be speaking at the fifth annual Chatham-Kent Non-Profit Network Conference, “Strengthening Our Roots,” at the John D. Bradley Centre in Chatham.

This is an opportunity for non-profits and charities to join hundreds of other non-profit sector leaders to share thoughts, collect ideas, discuss solutions, and get inspired by one of the world’s foremost experts who will challenge and forever change the way we think about charitable giving and philanthropy. 

Pallotta is an activist, humanitarian, author, and builder of movements. He is a pioneer in the national effort to transform the way our culture evaluates the character and impact of non-profit organizations.

His TEDTalk on philanthropy has been viewed more than 4.3 million times and is one of the 20 most-commented TEDTalks of all time.

Pallotta is the founder and president of the Charity Defense Council, which is dedicated to transforming the way the public evaluates charities.

He invented the multi-day charitable event industry. He created the Breast Cancer 3-Day walks and the multi-day AIDS Rides long-distance cycling journeys, which raised in excess of half a billion dollars in nine years and were the subject of a Harvard Business School case study.

The model and methods he created are now employed by dozens of charities and have raised in excess of $1.5 billion more for important causes from pediatric leukemia to suicide prevention and many others.
