Blue Ridge Institute Conference Speakers
One of the biggest benefits that you’ll discover at the Blue Ridge Institutes Conference is the caliber of national speakers that present every year in a very intimate setting.
In the past you might have listened to and met with speakers like…
- Dr. Bertice Berry, in 2016, engaged us in a conversation on balance which was simply… Awesome!
- Dan Pallotta, in 2014, helped us “Think Differently about Charity Work”
- Dr. Robert Lupton, in 2014, asked us to dig deep, “Are We Hurting People that We are Actually Trying to Help?”
- Charles Adler, in 2015, who spoke on “Innovation”
2017 Blue Ridge Institute Conference "All About The Pitch" Speakers

Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.
Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts at NonprofitAF.com, formerly nonprofitwithballs.com, as Nonprofit And Fearless.
