The ability to persuade is a vital skill to any non-profit that seeks to deepen its donor base. Persuasive communication is not about pushing your viewpoint, but about understanding the other’s perspective and connecting their concerns to yours. By stepping into the prospective donor’s shoes, you will get your message across more effectively, build relationships, and broaden your support. In this interactive workshop, you will learn a four-step method for reaching out and adapting to others to enhance your influencing power.

Dr. Melanie Billings-Yun, author of Beyond Dealmaking: five Steps to Negotiating Profitable Relationshipsis a negotiation professor and consultant with deep international experience, having lived and worked for 25 years in Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and France. Formerly senior partner at the Singapore-based negotiation firm, Global Resolutions, she has helped scores of organizations across Asia,  Europe and the Middle East build more productive relationships. Her list of over 50 corporate and non-profit clients includes the world’s leading financial institutions, consulting firms, and global brands.
