7 Amazing Nonprofit Social Media Decks on SlideShare

December 22, 2009

My work in the nonprofit sector is focused on training, consulting, and blogging.  I do a lot of presentations - either as part of training or to illustrate blog posts.  It has been over three years since I first discovered Slideshare and it was love at first site.

Slideshare remains one of my most valuable social media tools and networks.  Here's why:

  • Easy Sharing of Content: People ask me for copies of my slides and all I have to do is point them to my decks.

  • Connections To People/Ideas: Slideshare gives me access to presentations and people who are sharing valuable insights for nonprofits that I would not typically come across.  You can add decks to your favorites, join groups,  browse your friends decks, check out the featured slide shows or follow keywords.    I'm not stuck in a sector silo.

The invitation to write guest posts on SlideShare about interesting nonprofit related slideshows was something I could not resist.  I'll be sharing some of the best nonprofit decks, users, or groups that I find.

This slide deck is from Danielle Brigida who is an online network weaver for the National Wildlife Federation. This deck is a remix another slide show from a group of network weavers who are exploring the network weaving possibilities of slideshare.
