Speaker: Lori L. Jacobwith
Event Date/Time: Tuesday, October 2, 2012 - Minneapolis, MN
Asking for money is both an art and a science. This workshop, a follow-up to my popular Art of Asking session from December 2011, will teach you how to take your asking to the next level. Not only will this interactive session help you and your team reduce the fear and trepidation around inviting financial contributions, it will also teach you how to better handle when you hear "no" or "not now."
Designed for those making asks as well as those coaching others, the goal of this session is to infuse ease into how you invite individual donor contributions and show you how asking for help can be a fun and positive experience.
Please come prepared to practice asks of actual donors. To get the most of this session bring a list of the top ten asks you’d like to make before the end of the year.
Join us for a high-energy session that mixes lecture, group conversation, and paired asking practice. When you leave you'll have learned:
- What goes into making an ask;
- How to prepare for the ask and the factors that go into a successful ask;
- The importance of listening; and
- Practical, hands-on information on asking that you can immediately put to use.
This session is being offered in conjunction with the National Foundations: Know Who and How session in the afternoon. Register for both workshops and you'll be provided with a complimentary lunch.
