Will Someone? for the August 28th NonProfit Commons Meeting

This Friday, August 28th, TechSoup's NonProfit Commons in Second Life will feature Chris Heuer, and a presentation on his latest project: Will Someone?

Will Someone is a better way to ask for help to accomplish your objectives. Taking collaboration beyond simple conversation, Will Someone provides a socialized "ask" list, which enables you and your community members to easily see what needs to be done and get more done together. In this way we create accountability and recognition for contributions by facilitating connections between those who have a need and those who have the ability and availability. Now you can easily share all those things on your 'someday we will get to it list' with your community, making that someday come a lot sooner by asking Will Someone? If you are interested in starting a pilot with your advisory board or volunteers by tweeting to @WillSomeone_ 

About Chris Heuer:

While serving as a leader of Deloitte Consulting's Social Business efforts, he recognized the fundamental need to change the way we collaborate. So in 2013 he set out to build a technology solution that was inherently social, instilled with mutual respect and enabled people to work smarter together. As the founder and Chairman of non-profit Social Media Club, he saw the challenges faced by community organizations firsthand. The resulting solution, Will Someone, is now being offered to select non-profit communities, coworking spaces and advisory boards to enable them to maximize the passion and contributions of their volunteers.

Since he was young, Chris Heuer has had a talent to see how things could be instead of how they are. This vision, plus his mother's belief that he could do anything, lead him to a life of social entrepreneurship, going after some of the biggest opportunities to arise in the past 20 years. He is a consultant, a keynote speaker, a trained facilitator and a well regarded 'futurist'. He serves on several advisory boards, including the American Heart Association Stroke Advisory Board and those of numerous startups through his work as a mentor at Wearable World.
