What they said about
Trustees Fundraising Training
It was a real pleasure to welcome David to Missing People where he presented to the Executive team and to Trustees. David had really done his research, spent good time with our fundraising team in advance and matched well to our way of working and the organisational values of the charity. We really liked the examples and case studies and storytelling - especially the stories of success, of course. He’s helped to inspire us and most importantly - boosted our confidence around ‘making the ask’.

A huge thank you David for what was an ‘ideas packed session’- totally strategic, relevant, fact based, balanced, engaging, stimulating, thought provoking, self challenging and extremely professional. Look forward to a follow on!

I was really impressed with David’s presentation. David clearly has a wealth of experience in the fundraising arena. David managed to convey his knowledge thoughtfully and with good humour.
The content of David’s presentation was excellent; the delivery was well-paced and fluent; and David’s engagement and interaction with my Trustees was strong. David really took the fear out the charity ‘ask’ for many of my Trustees, which can only be good for our organisation.
