 Rave Reviews!

“THE BEST NONPROFIT Conference EVER!” … “Such a great event. Thank you for hosting this day of learning and collaboration!” … “Another great day of speakers and friendship!”

The Office Depot Foundation proudly hosted the seventh annual Weekend in Boca Civil Society Leadership Symposium on May 2-3, 2014, at Office Depot Corporate Headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla.  More than 400 participants came together to explore the theme “Innovation and Collaboration:  Telling Your Story Through Performance, Impact and Inspiration.”  We are grateful to everyone who joined us – from around the corner and across the country.

To extend the learning opportunities shared during Weekend in Boca by our outstanding speakers, we are pleased to share videos of each of the speakers’ presentations as well as the slides they showed in the Office Depot Auditorium.

Please feel free to share these links within your organization and with colleagues in the nonprofit, business, education and government arenas.  If you have questions or need assistance, please send us an e-mail.  Thank you!
