Pay what you like workshop with Nikki Bell & Simon Scriver
This event is 'Pay What You Like'...you can pay what you think is fair in advance or after the event. We really wanted to open this up to fundraisers who don't have the budget to attend the usual conferences and workshops. At the same time, we don't want to exclude larger organisations. Since these are all highly-rated sessions we have delivered internationally for big bucks we trust you to pay a 'donation' towards our costs if you have that budget and feel the sessions will help you raise more money.
Hour 1: Step-by-Step Guide To Corporate Fundraising
Does your organisation encourage you to approach anyone & everyone for a partnership? Do you feel overstretched & overwhelmed on where to begin? Have you had enough of cold calling & want to spend your precious time looking for and working with the businesses that will have the biggest impact? Then this session is for you. We’ll explore the best methods of looking for, pitching to and working with corporate partners to flip your corporate fundraising from scattered to strategic.
Hour 2: How to Find & Build Long-Lasting Fundraising Relationships
Brilliant fundraisers are everywhere; recruiting volunteers, winning corporate partnerships and amassing a community following of supporters who are engaged and passionate about their cause. But how are they doing it? This session will explore the effective and free ways that on-the-ground fundraisers are making the most of their time, and digital tools, to find and keep the supporters who will make the biggest long-term impact for their organisation.
Hour 3: Fundraising For Introverts: Better Networking, Phone Calls and Face-to-Face Connections
You’re empathetic, creative and skilled in spotting opportunities, all qualities to be a great fundraiser. But to be an amazing fundraiser you need to put yourself out there, network constantly and be comfortable in front of a crowd. Let’s face it...we don’t always feel up to it. In this session Nikki & Simon will give you the tools and the confidence you need to open new doors, boost your fundraising, advance your career and become a better leader. Award-winning fundraisers who have overcome anxiety and self-doubt to become public speaking contest winners & respected relationship builders, we’ll share our learnings of how to achieve your fundraising goals when all you really want to do is hide behind your desk.
The half-day event will finish with an opportunity to ask more questions, network, and to meet your peers.
