    In the midst of the Social Impact Exchange Conference, which focused on finance strategies, research and frameworks of collaboration, the “Technology, Talent and Funding What Works” session on Thursday morning was a welcome hug after a series of handshakes. In this panel and subsequent conversation there was honest discussion about the people behind the frameworks. Even the conversation around technology, a presumably un-touchy-feely subject, revolved around relationship. Given how foundational talent is to the creation of social impact, I’m almost surprised that there hasn’t been a study seeking to prove how being a ‘people-person’ is good for impact. The fact of the matter is, however, managing people well is tough. This panel was even better than a study at proving this point and advising the lost through this reality of achieving better staff and technology management.
