Sticky Situations: How to Navigate Awkward Conversations with Donors and Still Get to Yes!
Have you ever thought to yourself while talking with a donor, "Okay, what should I be doing in this instance?" or "That was kind of weird...?" If so, join the AFP NextGen Committee to explore sticky situations with donors, and how to navigate difficult conversations while still moving the conversation along!
This all-ages-and-stages luncheon will feature a panel of four seasoned, candid development professionals as we discuss all the taboo topics— from questions surrounding politics and religion, to uncomfortable questions about your relationship status, to deflecting your donor’s insistence on another round of drinks. A post-panel breakout session will seek to incorporate all shared knowledge during the session into a written advice guide for new professionals entering the field!
