I knew my organization needed a better online strategy, but I really didn't know where to begin. Boris packed so much information into the course, and I now feel that I not only can see what the overall goal should be but also several entry points so I can start right away without worrying about having to do it all at once.

Illuminating. Inspiring. Insightful. Those are some of the adjectives I would use to describe your Online Storytelling for Nonprofits presentation today … PS: I definitely would like to show the recorded presentation to my board and volunteers.
—Victor del Mastro
This course was amazing. It targeted all the areas I was trying to work through and each question I had seemed to be addressed in the next part of the course. … Any organization trying to improve its online presence should take this course.

In this course, we'll go step-by-step to define your online goals and then create a clear strategy to achieve them!
A storyteller, digital strategist and entrepreneur, Boris created dotOrgStrategy as a platform for teaching nonprofits how to effectively use story and technology to achieve and expand their missions without over-stretching their resources.
Boris began programming computers and working with online networks at a young age, falling in love with the power of tech to both communicate and create communities. In college, he switched focus to theater and film, which taught him the power of storytelling to change lives (and taught his parents a lot of patience). In 2010, he retired from playing the occasional Russian bad guy on TV, combining his two passions and applying them towards helping nonprofits increase their impact through digital media and marketing.
Boris has had the privilege of working with dozens of amazing organizations including: The Milken Family Foundation, Milken Archive of Jewish Music, Met Council, The Foundation Center (now Candid), jGirls Magazine, The Good People Fund, Genesis Philanthropy Group, Jewcer, Masa Israel, and New York City Children’s Theater.
