Training matters in recruiting and retaining talent, and is a critical tool for the successful manager of Frontline Fundraisers.
"The ability to do a thing well is impressive in its own right. The ability to teach it to others is a gift. Dan Shephard has that gift." Joaklin Raphael, Development Officer, Florida International University
"Dan delivered on his commitment to give us tools we can use after he finished his training. He delivered a huge return on our investment in training." Patricia Moline, Director of Development, Southern Illinois University Foundation
"Dan Shephard offers a fresh look at fundraising initiatives and takes the fear out of the terminology. His down-to-earth presentation and integrative approach is one that all fundraisers can embrace and use to have meaningful conversations with donors to help find the best philanthropic path for all involved." Vickie Riffe Ellis, Major Gifts Director, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
"Dan Shephard does a great job of breaking down planned giving options into bite-size, understandable pieces. Then he helps Gift Officers to read the "signals" prospects are sending so that they can help donors make gifts that benefit their college and also benefit themselves." Denise A. McDonald, Vice President of Development and External Affairs, Lynchburg (VA) College
"Dan’s Two Part Conversation approach with prospective donors is the sort of purposeful relationship-building tool that is a requisite in today’s fundraising world. Dan’s training is believable and relaxed. You will learn how to genuinely connect with your prospects as you observe Dan demonstrating the Two Part Conversation. Follow his lead and you’re bound to be successful." Craig Smith, Associate Vice President of Development, Rochester Institute of Technology
