You Didn't Just Say That?! - Challenging Fundraising Conversations
Thursday, July 11th, 2019
4:00 PM - 5:15 PM: Breakout 4
Inspired by Malcolm Gladwell's podcast "Revisionist History" - join us for an opportunity for honest, open therapy about how we handle internal and external discussions regarding philanthropy - with our leaders, colleagues and donors.
You'll discover how to maintain the courage of your convictions in respectful, if sometimes challenging, conversations about fundraising strategy, budget, goals and alignment with other fundraising professionals who may or may not have the same personal experience as you. Join us for some honest conversation about how you can actively listen, mirror behavior and align your values and philanthropic passions with your programs and missions. And don't worry. What's said at Bridge stays at Bridge. Come prepared to share, learn and walk away standing tall and empowered to discuss your fundraising experience at the office as your best self. Warning: This is a no-BS session.
