MJA Challenge: Presenting to One Donor or Twenty

Two weeks ago, I wrote an article that focused on presentation skills.  You can read it by clicking here. It occurred to me later that many people think these skills are best used for presenting to medium to large crowds.  The reality is a presentation to a single donor requires just as much skill, if not more (although you may want to skip standing for the entire time).

The challenge this week is to list 3 places in which you require strong presentation skills and, as a follow up, what you think you could do to improve your next offering.  If you are not sure, consider calling or emailing someone in your last presentation.  If you want to know how you did with a donor in a recent meeting – it is a great excuse to call the person with no plans for an ask.

As always, we love to hear what you learn.
