Everyone understands the importance of sharing your mission and stories with donors and stakeholders. But presenting your mission is not a “one size fits all” approach. It is important for everyone in your organization to have the correct pitch for every occasion - from a brief 3-minute interaction to an all-out slideshow. Training staff, board members and close volunteers to be ready and to read the situation appropriately is imperative!

Please join Dustin Johnson for step-by-step guidance through preparing the best presentations for every scenario your nonprofit may face.
