Speaking At Your Next Event
I love to public speak- whether in front of a large audience, small private event or virtually to thousands of participants around the world.
I bring not only my sector and subject expertise and knowledge but also a sense of humor. I make sure the audience has fun while learning. Laughter is not only the best therapy but it’s also a wonderful educational tool.
I can speak about a wide range of nonprofit topics, including:
🟣 Fundraising and marketing strategy
🟣 Social media engagement and strategy
🟣 Digital storytelling
🟣 Email fundraising and marketing
🟣 Building donor relationships through gratitude
🟣 Communications and media outreach
🟣 Content creation
ALL of the above are tied to fundraising in my talks. Marketing and communications are not stand alone. My goal when I speak is to help your organization build relationships and increase donations.
I invite you to read a summary of some of the above topic presentation ideas.
I have presented webinars for AFP Global, OneCause’s Raise fundraising conference, Bloomerang, DonorSearch Masterminds Series, Qgiv, numerous AFP chapters, Kenissa Networks, the Des Moines Fundraising Institute and more. (See below.)
I’d be happy to discuss with you the possibility of speaking at your upcoming event. Please fill in the form to the right with event details and I will be in touch shortly. Looking forward!
