You’ve heard from me…now let’s hear from some course participants. . .
This course was truly fantastic and helpful for rethinking how we tell our stories and how we are connecting with our audiences. There is no denying that storytelling and communicating our work effectively is important. This course drove that home and helped us to focus on what we individually need do to raise more money.
“I admit to being a little bit skeptical going into this; however, our organization has transformed our approach to donors! Our language before was very formal and stiff, now, it is conversational and engaging. The work was challenging, even uncomfortable at times, but well worth it!”
“Lori’s teaching and feedback was extremely valuable and thought-provoking, and it was very cool to be able to talk with and learn from individuals from a variety of non-profit organizations all across the country.”
So. . .
Are you up for the challenge?
Are you committed to ignite your fundraising into high-gear?
