The poll questions were a great way to stay engaged and also probably help her continue tailoring to the audience. Also really appreciated that she walked us through a great variety of actual budget forms, which for me is by far the best method to learn/refresh. It was clear she was super prepared, knew her stuff, and skilled at presenting complicated info in simple but engaging terms.”

August 26th, 2020.

“The information shared during this webinar is relevant not only for fundraising but also for general volunteer engagement.  Social media and electronic communications are efficient and cheap ways to communicate, but results in less and less meaningful individual connection with our members and supporters.  Using phone calls more effectively will pay big dividends as we build direct relationships with our members and supporters, improve fundraising, and increase volunteer engagement.”

That is a fantastic skill. He was conversational and added a little humor and personality to the ‘event.’ He’s the perfect phone personality, I imagine, that I’d be happy to get a phone call from.”

Karen Safrit, Elemental Music



August 26th, 2020.

“Addressing the different types of calls was very important, but there was actual, useful "new" material that I had not heard/read before.  Really like the idea of call structure, not script.  Also appreciate the idea that there are several ways to approach your own call process.  So nice to know I am not alone in my desire to make calls in private!  Support materials are very useful as well.”

Catherine Thomas, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore



April 29th, 2020.

Advanced Storytelling in Grants: How to Tell Stories Across All Types of Grants
October 17th, 2019.

“A few years ago, I attended a state agency’s grant writing workshop. The takeaway was “please give us more stories” which surprised me. From then on I vowed to work in stories so that my government grants at least caught the eyes and memories of reviewers. The takeaway from this excellent webinar was that the whole application is a story and to make sure you are clear and consistent in that story-telling. I learned that there were many forms and levels of stories giving me many more options. Thank you”
