Coonoor Behal, Founder of Mindhatch, and Whitney Brimfield, Principal of Spark Point Fundraising will present “Improv for More Effective Fundraising” at this year’s Bridge Conference in Washington, DC. Bridge 2016 is the premier conference of, by, and for creative fundraising professionals representing all sectors and industries.
“Improv for More Effective Fundraising” will use approaches and techniques from improvisational comedy to provide advanced-level training and creative tools that will help fundraisers:
- Think on their feet in front of donors
- Listen and communicate using empathy and persuasion
- Build relationships through non-transactional moments
- Accept the “no” and move forward positively and productively
- Relax and obtain greater comfort and confidence in moments that are out of their control
