Join Emma Lewzey (Blue Sky Philanthropy), Alex Tom (UNHCR), Corinne Berman and Suzanne Karajaberlian (Environmental Defence), as they share some leadership-level real-talk with you about breaking down silos for a better donor experience, greater effectiveness, more fundraising dollars in the door and better user engagement overall. 
Suzanne and Corinne, from Environmental Defence, will share their experience of how they collaborated on their development, digital engagement and advocacy initiatives while prioritizing the donor/supporter journey. Emma and Alex will talk about their experience at a major hospital foundation and how they built a two-way bridge between annual and major giving for more dollars in the door and a better donor experience. 

Different type of and sized organizations. Different silos to bust. Different goals in mind. But the same key characteristics: a fundamental lack of ego, a willingness to challenge convention and embrace risk, a focus on the donor or constituent first, and an emphasis on data as a key tool to help make or justify new decisions. 

All of them are seasoned team leaders. All of them will share advice that you can take back to your desk. All of them are ready for your questions so join them for what's sure to be an enlightening talk.
