Peel Region Workshop: Fundraising for Introverts, Extroverts and Everyone in Between!
Fundraisers are generally considered extroverts – outgoing event hosts, mix mingling schmoozers, able to ask without fear. The truth is quite different and it would surprise you: many fundraisers at all ages and stages are often a mix of both styles. Introverts bring a different set of skills to the table that can be equally effective at securing gifts and building relationships. This event is NOT about how to become more extroverted; it’s about understanding your strengths and how to leverage them to achieve success. Soft skills are vital in fundraising, working with donors, stakeholders, board and staff means you need to know yourself and lead with your strengths.
Join us to learn:
- HOW to discover your strengths and understand which skills are needed for what roles in our profession – you will feel more confident
- Case studies of introverts/extroverts who have successfully evolved into every facet of the fundraising profession – we will dispel myths
- Tips for surviving special events, personal branding and other fundraising functions that require extroverted style and energy – excel in your career without compromising who you ar
