A passionate speaker
I enjoy public speaking, from workshops and webinars to sermons. People tell me I’m enthusiastic and passionate. I like telling stories, and hearing new ones in response.
I welcome being peppered with questions! My sessions are interactive, as that’s how we learn best (plus it’s more fun for me as well).
What makes me stand out? I understand not just fundraising but Christian fundraising really well:
Extensive research into Christian giving in Canada
Experience in charities big and small
Theological training with a focus on church and money
I know the giving numbers and the generational trends. And I have practical suggestions for your group right now!
