Education Session

You Don’t Need to Advertise a Good Party: How Remarkable Donor Experiences Help Organizations Stay Relevant, Innovate and Grow

In business, as soon as a customer can go around you to complete a transaction, they absolutely will. Likewise, as soon someone sees more value in allocating their time, money and resources to another organization, they absolutely will.

In this talk, Svoboda will outline 3 ways to stay at the center of the relationship, and in forefront of someone’s mind as they consider where their charitable contributions can go – ultimately, fully funding your organization and making your donors feel great about their role.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1- How to develop a Donors-First approach to fundraising.

2- How to move from a mindset of Service to Care, as it relates to the donor experience.

3- How to own the relationships that you currently have, and grow the referral rate through a donor-centered approach.

 


Speaker

Bill Svoboda
CloseSimple

In 2003 and at the age of 20, Bill Svoboda founded his first company out of his college dorm room, an online custom apparel business. By the time Bill sold the business and started his next business (a real estate software, CloseSimple), his company had printed over 500,000 pieces of apparel for clients such as Google, Facebook & LinkedIn, to colleges and non-profits across the country.

Currently, Bill is completing his first business book, “You Don’t Need to Advertise a Good Party,” and is a passionate speaker on the topics of both entrepreneurism, customer-engagement, customer experience, growth strategies and why everyone should make at least one pair of shoes from Zappos.com (you’ll need to hear him talk to learn why).
