Fundraising Masterclass with Rob Woods: How to Get WAY MORE MEETINGS with Wealthy Donors

May 12, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

12th May | 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm – Join us for another popular session, designed to enhance your fundraising skills and knowledge.

The Major Donor Special Interest Group and the I Am Group are pleased to present another popular session to help us be better major donor fundraisers.  We’re delighted to have Rob Woods back on Thursday 12 May for an extended session to teach us how to get way more meetings with wealthy donors.

This is the first of two sessions Rob is doing for us this year; the next one will be about asking and handling objections from donors on Tuesday 12 July. Mark your diaries and stay tuned for more details.


How to get WAY MORE MEETINGS with wealthy donors

Recent developments have made it feel harder than ever to encourage wealthy donors to meet you.  But in fact there are still plenty of things we can do, and unless we do them, we have little chance of increasing this income. In this dynamic session, award-winning trainer Rob Woods will outline strategies to get your pipeline moving, including:

  • The one technique that’s ESSENTIAL to securing more donor meetings
  • THREE tried and tested strategies that help you secure more trust-building conversations with wealthy donors
  • Major Donor Events – the three most common mistakes, and how to avoid them
  • CONFIDENCE – The simple technique that makes you feel more bold and confident
