How can you transform your relationships with supporters to create greater engagement and larger gifts? Join Bernard Ross, international fundraising expert, for this interactive webinar to gain practical insights.

Bernard Ross will introduce you to practical field work he and his team completed with a range of US, UK, Australian and international charities- from Doctors without Borders in the USA to the Royal Opera House in London.
During the webinar you'll not only hear about case studies, but you'll actually take part in live experiments to illustrate the learning and apply them to your work. This is not your everyday talkshop!
