Insights for Good #4 [UPDATED DATE]
1/20/11 / David Kennedy
Thank you to everyone who has attended our meetups! The first three have been great successes.
One past nonprofit we hosted had the following to say:
I can’t tell you how helpful the Insights for Good event was for Mi Casa… the positive reverberations from the event in September continue to be felt! Thanks again for offering MI Casa the chance to be at the center of all those insights for good!” – Kate Brenton, Mi Casa Resource Center
Our next event will be Tuesday, Feb 16th. Same place (Common Grounds, Lodo), same time (6:30-8:00).
We will be hosting CWEE (Center for Work Education and Employment) at our next meetup. Their mission to provide job training programs to help low-income individuals prepare for, find and keep sustainable employment is especially relevant right now.

Insights for Good was created by Corona Insights in our continued efforts to give back to the Denver community.
There is a lot of marketing talent in Denver – and there are a lot of great nonprofits that need great marketing talent. However, getting the two together isn’t always easy.
So what is Insights for Good?
Insights for Good is a gathering of local marketing professionals that want to give back to a local nonprofit while also networking with like-minded professionals.
How does it work? The first 15-20 minutes is like many networking events – introductions and conversation. Then the nonprofit will introduce themselves, give an overview of their challenges, and then the brainstorming and real interaction begins. The goal is to generate as many fresh insights as possible that the nonprofit can take away to further explore and build on.
There is no further commitment beyond the one night – just an evening of networking, brainstorming, and doing some good!
