Work Smarts Webinar: Selecting Social Impact Evaluation Methods for Arts Organizations
delivered by Paul Bakker from Social Impact Square

Increasingly funders want evidence of how much social initiatives are producing positive benefits for people and communities. That trend is the same for arts organizations, although arts organizations experience somewhat unique challenges, demands, and opportunities for measuring social impact. 

This workshop will review the steps arts organizations should take to select the social impact evaluation methods that will best suit their needs. We’ll review the strengths and limitations of both traditional qualitative and quantitative methods, as well as arts-based evaluation methods. We’ll then work through the steps to select methods that fit some of the workshop attendees’ needs.

Biz Smarts Webinar: Perfect Pricing 101
delivered by Leyla Razeghi
How do you set the perfect price? Some people make up a price as they go, others follow their competitors. If you don’t consider all the right factors and launch with the wrong price, you may be putting your business in jeopardy. It can be very hard to recover from underpricing or over-pricing and some businesses end up failing because of it.
What you will learn from this webinar:

  1. Three key elements to consider when pricing your product or service and making sure you profit.
  2. How perceived value relates to price and how to put a dollar sign to the abstract aspects of your offerings.
  3. How to set a price that you can profit from; a price that your consumers are happy to pay and one that helps them understand how valuable your product or service is.
