Norman Reiss is a non-profit professional. Want to know how good he is?
Want to know how much he knows about and thinks about the non-profit space?
All you have to do is check out his blog. You get a good sense of his depth (how well he knows certain topics), breadth (how many topics he knows about in this space), and professional passion.
Norman’s blog is excellent – it puts his brand out there as a subject matter expert and a though leader in the non-profit space. His tagline is “Bridging Technology, Communications & Development to Implement ePhilanthropy Strategies for Nonprofit Organizations,” and all of his posts are so on-brand it’s awesome.
Here are some recent posts, and my comments on how/why they really show Norman’s brand:
- Mistakes Nonprofits Can’t Afford to Make – shows he is a thought leader… and if he is YOUR nonprofit executive, you know he’s strategy-minded.
- More ePhilanthropy Ideas from Around the Web – keeps up with industry chatter and ideas – remains current.
- Examples of Nonprofit Excellence – in this post he has suggestions for the org that recognizes the excellence – he’s thinking about how to improve what’s already there.
- Integrated Fundraising – No Longer Optional – understands industry issues and transformations.
- Notes from Fundraising Day, ePhilanthropy Symposium – he works to stay current on industry trends, affairs, news, etc.
- Blackbaud to buy Kintera, but… – understanding of the technology issues in fundraising…
Seriously, Norman gets it. I’ve been impressed for a long time, and I’m happy to give him this award!
