Fundraising Headlines: March 12, 2012

Thanks to everyone who attended the Nonprofit Telesummit. I really enjoyed doing the interviews and have appreciated all of your positive feedback. Being my first foray into telesummits, it was very encouraging to hear about the tidbits you learned and are planning to implement. And I learned some things to do differently next time. Always good to keep learning! Here are just a few excerpts from the emails I received:

  • “Thanks for this programming!”
  • “Great morning sessions.  We really enjoyed the content and have good take-away information to use as we move ahead with our planning activities.”
  • “Thank you!”
  • “Just wanted to let you know that I though Lori was fantastic – very specific info. Downloaded her tip sheet immediately.”
  • “Thank you! I’m off to work on my Storytelling right now. I even emailed my staff and asked them to come in Monday morning with something to share from their experiences at our organization. I’m really looking forward to the other sessions.”
  • “Thank you, the sessions were great!”
  • “Have taken in the sessions today…good stuff.”
  • “I was on your terrific call this morning, thanks for all that you do!”
  • “Thanks Kirsten, There is no substitute for experience. With the information I am receiving, I should be able to minimize my mistakes.”
