Event Details

This workshop will provide you with a day to hone some of the skills you already possess and to learn from others about how to make successful asks.

This workshop is about you taking time out of your usual working environment to test out and rehearse ways of introducing large philanthropic gifts into your conversation.

You will have the opportunity to discuss success but also failures, or any hurdles that may well be in your way. This workshop will be run under the Chatham House rules.

You will get the opportunity to meet and hear from the host Mr Bruce Green who will discuss what he likes about his supporter journey and what annoys him, as well as hearing from our other guest Richard Bishop, trustee, donor and Philanthropy Group Chair at Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

Learn how to uncover new benefactors, revive existing relationships.

The program is designed for all levels of professionals as we will all share, support and work together.

We will practice concrete skills and learn techniques from our peers to inspire heightened results.

And we will finish the day with prosecco networking in the beautiful grounds of Winwick Hall.

 

Who Should Attend

  • Individuals who work directly with major gift donors or charities looking to set up a major donor program
  • Development professionals with major gift responsibilities
  • Any individual interested in securing major gifts for their charity
