We are thrilled to announce Part Two of the Pre-Skoll World Forum Series:

Maximizing Engagement at the Virtual Skoll World Forum 

with special guest Jill Ultan, Director of Event Production at the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship at the Skoll Foundation


A silver lining of this virtual world is that sector convenings such as the Skoll World Forum have pivoted to virtual, creating unprecedented access to great leaders, funders, and mission drivers like you who work fiercely to solve the world’s most intractable problems.

We invite you to join Natalie Rekstad, Founder & CEO of Black Fox Philanthropy, and Jill Ultan of the Skoll Foundation on April 6, 2021 at Noon EDT to learn how to gain the most from your time investment at the Virtual Skoll World Forum and other sector convenings, whether virtual or in person. Register for our webinar “Maximizing Engagement at the Virtual Skoll World Forum” here.

Jill will share insights on this year’s Forum, including the theme ‘Closing the Distance’, the format, the highly curated sessions (545 sessions submitted for consideration), ways to connect in meaningful ways with other delegates, including potential funders and collaborators, and much more!

As a long-term delegate and contributor to the Skoll Community and ecosystem, among other key convenings such as Opportunity Collaboration and the World Economic Forum, Natalie will share tactical approaches to engaging delegates of interest to your mission in ways that lead to authentic connection and exploration around alignment.  Natalie will also discuss mindset for before, during, and after the event that will help inform your approach to your interactions virtually and IRL (in real life).  The goal:  Meaningful and mission-aligned relationships that help move your mission forward.

Register for our session here, and be sure to register for the Skoll World Forum here prior to April 13, 2021!
