“I really appreciate how it is broken down so efficiently with bite-size pieces I can use for my board.”
“A terrific insight that I can use as a board chair to ensure everyone's voice is heard as well as how to best equip each board member with tools to 'make the ask' .”
Tara-Leigh Heslip, South East District
“This webinar achieved a tremendous amount of material we can work with, in a very short time. The visuals are great to help understand the concepts of different styles. There were practical suggestions of how to work with the Board on fundraising - partnering, breaking into groups of three to do exercises, how to get everyone to participate in a meeting. One of the best webinars ever!”
Cheryl Lasher, RISSE
“This one was very informative. Makes you look at your board members in a different light. Took a look at how to ask your donors for continued support. Who to take with you when doing those meetings. Would highly recommend this training.”
