Speaking

I enjoy sharing my experience and expertise with other fundraisers to inspire them and watch them grow! As I’m a working fundraiser, I’m able to set aside a few times per year to speak to fundraisers and nonprofits.

Here are a few of my golden topics:

    • Working with High Net Worth Donors: Working with high net worth donors and ultra-high net worth donors, tailored for either Canadian or US audiences.
    • The Joy of Fundraising: How I found my inspired career – and how you can find joy too.
    • The Gracious Team Leader: How to build trust and enthusiasm in your fundraising team.
    • All about #DonorLove: topics on effectively engaging and continually delighting your supporters (asking, connecting, thanking, reporting) and how crucial this is for a healthy nonprofit.

I’m passionate, honest, engaging, experienced, and creative.
