Funding is built on relationships and relationships are built through great communications. This presentation will give you a critical insight into the whole process, allowing you to raise more funds, through stronger relationships and better communications.

Understanding your funders journey is critical. Identifying the key stages, influences and touch points that your funders experience is a great place to start, but what if there was more to it than this?

In this presentation, our guest speakers Nevil Tynemouth and Danny Mitchell will share an insight into the way to build meaningful relationships through excellent communications, helping you improve your communications and relationships by sharing these key points with you:

  • Understanding why we do and don’t do some of the things that we know we really should
  • Discovering how to tackle some of those things that are a challenge in communications
  • Seeing the world though others (especially your funders) eyes
  • Understanding what’s their motivation and what is yours (a key relationship builder)
  • Developing a positive emotional state and effects on relationships and communications (and why stress can damage your communications)
  • Learning to build trust with everyone around you
  • Using highly effective questioning and listening to really connect with funders and everyone around you

You will leave with a series of tools, techniques and approaches that will help you build stronger relationships and allow you to communicate with everyone around you more effectively.
