Join this hands-on training where you will learn how to navigate challenging donor conversations with ease and effectiveness.  

We live in a time when remaining silent on critical issues is no longer possible. You know that you need to have more honest, transparent, and authentic conversations with donors, but you may be wondering how. 

If you have struggled to find the right way of approaching certain topics with donors, faced pushback around new initiatives or messaging, or sensed a donor’s unwillingness to engage around certain issues, then this course if for you. 

Our ability to successfully navigate critical conversations comes from understanding how cultural differences, identity, and language play into our professional communications. 

In this 90-minute course,  you will learn how to increase your persuasiveness, gain long-term buy-in, build rapport, and increase your power of influence. By the end of this course, you will have a toolbox of skills and tactics to prepare you for your next important and challenging conversation.

About Your Topic Expert:

Caliopy Glaros helps mission-driven organizations connect their stakeholders through travel, storytelling, and virtual engagement. As a consultant for Philanthropy without Borders, she works with organizations to create impactful virtual and in-person opportunities for donors to connect directly to the programs they support. After years of consulting nonprofits whose donors have limited in-person access to the mission-related work (such as humanitarian aid and environmental conservation groups), she developed tools and strategies to help them create virtual experiences that enhance participation and bring donors closer to the mission. In addition to her extensive research, writing, and speaking, she provides group training, meeting facilitation, individual coaching, and project consulting on mass market communications, one-on-one stewardship, events, site-visits, tours, and travel programs. Caliopy has an academic background in Anthropology and Adult Learning, is a certified trainer in Intercultural Communication, and the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access (IDEA) Chair of the Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
