In June of 2020 I found myself a victim of pandemic downsizing. I became one of the millions of people suddenly displaced because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, wondering what to do next. With years of experience in the professional event management world and a great deal of that time volunteering for groups whose missions align with my beliefs, taking a good look at opportunities in this industry made sense. In doing so, I was able to step back and look at how this pandemic is affecting the culture of Cape Cod, as well as the impact across the country.
What I saw was crisis management. Organizations normally dependent on live programming or in-person major fundraising events suddenly forced to cancel; scrambling to figure out how to ask for donations and support for programming they can no longer offer. In many cases I saw organizations struggling just to be able to keep the lights on. It occurred to me that perhaps the reason I suddenly found myself unemployed was because I was needed someplace else.
With decades of event experience from organizing small events and entertainment groups to working as the event director for one of the largest outdoor festivals in Florida, I realized that I could offer something these groups didn’t have…hope.
With creative approaches to traditional events and by orchestrating hybrid fundraising campaigns that combine virtual and practical event attributes, New Latitude can re-imagine how you reach your existing donors and help craft inventive channels to find new ones.
