Why me? Why here? Why now? Creating Your Public Narrative

Melanie Schnoll Begun

Contrived elevator speeches do not work. People give to people. But what does it take to have a story that is so appealing and strong that it allows you to earn the trust of the donor and their family, and empowers you to go into any solicitation feeling confident, prepared and on fire? In this session, a veteran for-profit and nonprofit fundraiser will help you construct a public narrative that will connect more effectively with donors and close larger gifts.
