From the very first session it was clear, one of the common themes at MyCharityConnects was, sharing.
The first session I attended after a fantastic open keynote by Allison Fine was Panel Discussion: Open Organizations, all about being open in your organization. Although I found this to be an interesting topic, particularly, Ashley Good sharing that her organization, Engineers without Borders, creates a publication every year about failure. It was the tools that everyone used at their organizations big and small, that I walked away with that I found to be the most valuable.
- Mailchimp - helps you design email newsletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results. It's like your own personal publishing platform.
- Google Docs - Google Drive. Keep everything. Share anything.
- Eventbrite - an online service that people everywhere use to create, share, and join any event imaginable.
- FreshBooks - mission to deliver fast and simple invoicing and time tracking services that help you manage your business.
- Box.com - offers secure, scalable content-sharing that both users and IT love and adopt.
- SalesForce - the enterprise cloud computing company that is leading the shift to Social Enterprise
