Meet Your Facilitator
Tim Schuster is the Founder of Popup Think Tank. He believes every founder deserves the opportunity to build a community around their project. As Strategic Development Consultant at Thrivent Financial, a not-for-profit company with a mission to help people be wise and generous, he works on teams that test and launch new products, businesses, and partnerships. He lives in North Minneapolis with his partner, Kelsey and their daughter, Joslyn.
What questions will we tackle together?
How do we activate and mobilize the average person?
What are practical, meaningful, and impactful ways that we can change culture that will drive down demand?
What are past success stories in changing culture? What are the proven and working theories of change?
How can we unite people of faith in this movement?
How can we connect church and nonprofit leaders?
On the surface it looks like we all do the same thing, but that is not even close to being true. What are the differences and similarities?
How can we open the door to more connectivity and community?
How can we overcome mindsets of scarcity and competition?
How It Works
Step 1: Rapid Discovery
Before the event, we’ll send a survey to key leaders and participants. This input will give us a chance to design and share information to get everyone caught up.
Step 2: Contribute Your Ideas, Wisdom, and Connections
Our facilitator will help us unearth the good ideas that are deep inside of each of us. What kind of ideas? The kind of ideas that can benefit the anti-human trafficking movement in the Twin Cities and beyond.
Step 3: Celebrate the mission!
After the event we'll put the ideas in an Idea Book for everyone who was in attendance. As much as this event is about generating new ideas, it's also about celebrating those who are making a difference. Register today to see this process in action.
