Event description

Description

Michelle Moore joined the University of Sheffield as Deputy Director in DARE (Development, Alumni Relations and Events) in September 2016 and manages the University's fundraising from generous donors. Alumni and friends are kindly donating amounts which vary from a few pounds to a few million pounds but they all have one thing in common, in that they have been asked to donate. Michelle will discuss some of her experiences of asking donors to make gifts to support scholarships and research projects and apply this to other real-life situations we all find ourselves in where we need to ask someone for something.

Michelle will give a short presentation which will cover some of the theory behind persuading people, and then we will have an interactive session with specifics on real-life scenarios, so please bring your ideas of those things you want to ask for, but are just not quite sure how to do so. It could be anything from asking your boss for flexible work arrangements to asking a colleague for support in a project, or anything else you wish.
