Terri Broussard Williams explains how your community can be a powerful force to supercharge your movement, through ‘firestarters’, members of your community with whom the message resonates, and who feel empowered to share your story more widely.
Storytelling is a big part of how you can encourage people to take action: Broussard Williams explains how organisations can decide on how they can best share their mission to build their community.
“Show that you are reflective of the people you are serving.”
Non-profit organisations can struggle to create a lasting movement behind their mission, but by involving ambassadors you can create more awareness and fundraising opportunities. By creating a space for every person in your collective, whether they are donors, board members or fundraisers, you can demonstrate how you can drive forward progress.
Terri Broussard Williams approaches ambassadorship in a new way, by empowering people to choose the parts of leadership that fuel their fire and make them passionate about the cause. Whether they are a whizz on social media, or great at public speaking, Broussard Williams is helping organisations to optimise the collective skills of a community to drive change and reach their full potential.
“Unleash the power of your mission by going out into your community.”
