Engage Conference Spotlight: Are You a 'Yes' Person?
On April 10, FundRaising Success is hosting its second annual Engage Conference. Engage is the only case-study-focused fundraising conference focusing on the keys to success from organizations that have successfully made the leap from just-getting-by nonprofits to powerhouse organizations. Leading up to Engage, we will be highlighting content from the participating organizations and speakers that we've published over the years.
Fundraisers may hear the word "no" quite often in their line of business, but it takes a "yes" person to be a truly effective fundraiser. Jeff Schreifels, senior partner at Veritus Group, says he's "encountered two distinct types of people that have both made an impression on us and served as predictors of their success in fundraising."
Those two distinct types? "Yes" people and "no" people. And yes, "yes" people are much more likely to have more success in their fundraising. So Schreifels asks, "Are You a 'Yes' Person?"
Schreifels will facilitate the major-gifts roundtables, "How to Land the Elusive Major Gift," at the second annual Engage Conference.
