Does your team look



Your advancement staff should feel great about what they do.

Bored fundraising staff

But sometimes, you just need an outsider to come in and re-energize your team. High-performing organizations demonstrate unity toward their mission, collectively celebrate their successes, embrace new learning opportunities, and actively promote a positive work environment. Routine staff meetings or retreats are often used to reinforce these principles, but too often, the same messages coming from the same people drives your audience to tune out (or secretly turn to their cell phone). 

We can provide that much-needed boost to your advancement team through our motivational presentation:


Working in Advancement

It's Not Just About Raising Money, But Mostly It Is

This presentation is 30 to 45 minutes (depending on audience laughter, crying and applause). It is fast-paced, intensely visual, and interactive. A few of the many topics covered include:

  • How fundraising for higher education in America got started (A very funny, but true story!)

  • Dealing with those who just don’t get advancement

  • Research (yes, real research) on why people give

  • And much more!

This presentation is also great for large conferences and professional meetings. Contact us to learn more about how we can help fire up your next meeting, retreat or conference.
