Be More Productive, Powerful & Persuasive with Board, Staff & Donors

Thursday, May 20, 2021
1:00 pm2:00 pm

Presenter: Bloomerang
Cost: Free


Are you tired of a board that is not engaged and having to manage up? Do you feel like your ideas aren’t coming across, despite your expertise? Do you want your staff & board to communicate more effectively, stop side conversations and work through problems to get more done?

Learn to unlock your influence. Influence means getting those you have no authority over to do what you want them to do. Mastering influence means you can raise more money, market your organization with ease and have stronger board engagement. In this workshop, you will learn how to:

• Pitch your ideas in a way that gets a yes, every time
• Gain credibility as an expert and get your ideas implemented
• Have easier donor cultivation conversations
• Finally get those board members engaged
• Get what you want the first time you ask

Other Info: This webinar will be recorded for future viewing. If you can't make it, go ahead and register anyway. You'll receive the recording a little later.
