Fundraising Training: Getting to the Point

Can you get to the point? Can you tell an audience why they should donate to your organization? Can you explain to them what your organization does, and why they should care? If you use slides when speaking are you committing the sin of “Death by PowerPoint” that puts audiences to sleep? Speaking clearly and communicating well are critical skills in the non-profit world and this 90-minute, hands-on workshop will deliver practical tips to make you a better communicator.

The session will focus on three crucial aspects of speaking: what you say, how you say it and how you use visuals. Using examples from the world of politics and entertainment, you will walk out with all the tools necessary to build a compelling fundraising pitch or speech.

PRESENTER Dave Yewman has coached hundreds of executives at numerous companies over the past several years, including Adidas, Archos, aQuantive, CA, CNet, Coinstar, Craigslist, Digg, eHarmony, Golfsmith, Ingram Micro, Isilon, K-Swiss, Microsoft, Razorfish, Reebok, Secure Computing and Vignette. Dave has spoken to numerous groups about how to use clear, concise, compelling language as a strategic weapon when dealing with audiences of all kinds.
