LZF Spring Institute 2015

Friday, June 12, 2015
Presenter Robbie Samuels:
"The Art of the Schmooze and Getting Past the Fear of Asking"
Forming and cultivating relationships is the heart of any successful fundraising campaign, volunteer drive, committee effort           or community-building activity. This workshop sharpened in-person networking skills and gave participants a chance                  to share successful techniques. In a supportive environment, participants moved past personal roadblocks and examimed some common mistakes. They practiced specific language for how to make a strong ask and reviewed ten tips to make their fundraising plans successful.
