Walk Through the SmartScan: Webinars Oct. 20 & 23

To succeed, organizations must embed effective communication practices into all they do and have the discipline to measure the results. That’s why Spitfire created the SmartScan™. 

The SmartScan helps organizations assess whether they have the systems in place and are using them effectively to be strong communicating organizations. It’s also an awesome tool for foundations to share with grantees to ensure their efforts get the best results.

Take the SmartScan for a test drive to find out if your organization or your grantees are using communication effectively.

For Foundations*:

Spitfire is offering a free webinar and demo to foundations on Monday, Oct. 20 from 1 pm – 2 pm ET. Click here to register.

For Nonprofits*:

Spitfire is offering a free webinar and demo to nonprofits on Thursday, Oct. 23 from 1 pm – 2 pm ET.  Click here to register

*If you’re a foundation but the timing doesn’t work for you, please join us for the nonprofits webinar. And vice versa. These webinars will be tailored for their audience, but you’ll still have a chance to check out the tool and learn all about how the SmartScan can help your communication efforts.

“This has been a tremendous eye opener. It shows us how to pull the aspects of communications skills, from the message, to the audience. It forced us to identify our strengths and our weaknesses in an effort to become more strategic in how we prepare our messages and communicate them.”
