The Holistic Relationship begins with YOU

Presented by Janet Ginn, CFRE

The Holistic Relationship begins with YOU presentation provides a comprehensive overview and helps answer the questions “am I in the right place and profession?” and “how can I gain the knowledge and respect needed to succeed?”

No matter how long you have been in the nonprofit arena there are times we question whether or not we are in the right place doing the right things.  Attendees are provided with thought provoking questions which will lead them to real solutions in regard to their career, donor relations and organizational enthusiasm.

Relationship building, the solicitation process, the psychological dynamics and the realities of asking for money are examined as attendees hear stories of real life examples. While attendees develop an understanding of the essentials of fundraising operations, they also examine the larger issues confronting today’s fundraising professionals.

The presentation will address knowing who YOU are;  knowing your organization, knowing your donors and building the appropriate relationship; knowing their capacity; knowing their needs – put them first through the discernment model; knowing how to communicate and going beyond your comfort zone to help them discern their needs and desires. You will walk away with tips for personal and professional development as well as organizational change.
