C2-1: Leadership Bootcamp – essential survival training for fundraisers | generously sponsored by

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When it comes to our fundraising profession, our sector has one of the most challenging leadership environments of any sector of our society.

There’s a lot of reasons…the ‘overhead’ issue that still grips our boards and bosses; the few and far between professional education opportunities for eladers; a releactively new ‘professionisation’ of fundraising; fundraiser burnout; high demand and shallow talent pool…

More than ever, it’s important to gather around our industry’s best and brightlest leadership and make them tell us everything they know!

Jane will guide attendees through a 2-hour leadership survivial bootcamp.

With a career spanning 2 continents and every nook and cranny of fundraising, Jane can help leaders of every description:
-'Leading up' in your organisation and struggling to build effective and efficient fundraising programs without support? Jane can help.
-Were you suddenly thrust into a leadership position with just a few months of experience after a sudden departure of your boss? …come get help from Jane and your colleagues.
-You have a great team and a fundraising program that's humming along. Where do you go from here?
-Feeling burnt out after giving your mind, body and spirit to the sector? You are not alone!

Now matter where you are on the fundraising leadership spectrum, you need a community of peers, ready to share knowledge and expereince. Join Jane and your colegaues for a clinic where you can safely and effectively explore problems and solutions, and maybe most important, share and receive support from your peers.

Come prepared to share your biggest fears, failures, secrets and successes.
