Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Workshop Three: Future Sector Leaders Tell All

So, how can you attract, retain, and even replace young talent?

I think you first need to listen to young talent, for which this workshop provides an opportunity. Young people will gladly share their (short) life stories, if you just ask. There is an amazing amount of wisdom in the young kids out there, so pull up a chair. We've got three on this panel, ready to dispense their stories and ideas.

Some quotes:
"It was important that I could find a job where being 28 was not a detriment."
"Unfortunately, at most nonprofits, there seem to be lots of entry-level people, a few people who make a fat paycheck, and no one in between."
