February Coffee Talk Emotional Intelligence for Fundraisers, Derek Bbanga

March 4, 2019

Greetings! The executive committee of Kenya Association of Fundraising Professionals wish to invite you for Coffee Talk Season 15 scheduled for Thursday 28th February 2019 at the Laico Regency Hotel at 5:00pm – 7:00pm. The topic; Emotional Intelligence for Fundraisers.

Emotional Intelligence is an important competency for fundraisers because fundraising is an art, not a science. Development professionals who excel in the field have strong abilities to read the emotions of others, to empathize with them, and to understand their own role in influencing their decision-making. Today’s donors expect a personalized approach. This is especially true in the major gifts arena. A fundraiser who understands how donors make decisions can tailor communications to be persuasive and effective. Fundraisers must build and sustain strong relationships with many different audiences – internal colleagues, external partners, donors, prospects, board members and peers. The most exciting news about EQ? It can be learned!
