Children of Notable Parents: Targeted Segmentation to Identify Families of Wealth | Amanda Ward

Chasing down a mysterious “child of notable parent” code led to a project that not only identified new individual prospects, but also led to important gift discussions. Capital projects create numerous naming opportunities: opportunities to cement an individual’s legacy with the college. Applying the results of this targeted research project strengthened the families’ relationships with the college and opened doors to new major gifts. Cultivating families as a group supports the current campaign through major gifts honoring their collective experience with the institution and creates a foundation for the future through a culture of philanthropy that will span generations of graduates. Join Amanda as she discusses the college’s approach to and lessons learned in identifying prospects from families of wealth and results from the project.

I’d Rather Die than Speak in Public | Jacey Poppell

Do you have great ideas but the thought of standing up in front of a group to share them makes you want to run for the hills? Then this is the session for you. You’ll learn tips and tricks to not only make it through a presentation but how to make a successful presentation. We’ll touch on presentations for audiences large and small as well as the power of verbal and nonverbal communication in a professional environment.
