Aspects of Fundraising and Talent Acquisition Process
26 March، 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The future belongs to the organizations that have a strong and vital major gifts program. Never has the need been greater for a useful approach to asking for the gift and securing it.
Hence, having a clear understanding of your organization’s core values, mission and competitive advantage, as well as the multidimensional perspective of the prospects’ inclinations and donors’ tendencies for giving, would definitely help you tailor out an essential fundraising plan and an effective strategy to keep your organization on track and get the best returns from your time, effort and budget.
On the other hand, organizations differ where each and everyone has its unique stipulations and guidelines; not to mention its culture and work environment.
In this context, human resource managers, program directors, and team leaders, must be prepared to deal with various issues that such challenges give rise to. Consequently, talent recruitment and acquisition play a major role in achieving the organization’s strategic goals by selecting the best candidates, retaining the unique and qualified employees, and transform their groups into highly efficient teams.
Through role-playing, analysis and real-life exercises, this workshop will provide you with a wide array of knowledge and equip you with a set of proven techniques that enable you sharpen your skills, develop a beneficial plan and implement a successful strategy.
