PLENARY: Fundraising Is A Lonely Hunter

Companies all over the world are realising that staff well-being and happiness is key to success. Richard Branson said, “If You Look After Your Staff, They’ll Look After Your Customers.” But has this spilled over to non-profits?

We all know the donor is the hero and your organisation exists for your beneficiaries. But what about you… the fundraiser?

In this plenary Simon will look at the unique mental and emotional challenges we face as fundraisers. He’ll talk about his own experiences as an award-winning and mental-breakdown-having fundraiser. He’ll share stories of other fundraisers who have been neglected and undermined. And he’ll ask what we can do about it, including how to ‘internally market’ fundraising to your co-workers.

Most importantly you’ll come away feeling less alone, more appreciated, and equipped with the tools you need to take care of yourself and to raise more.
