Transitions: From fundraiser to fundraising leader

Never before has it been more important for fundraisers to take a leadership role in their organisations. Unless we as fundraisers influence and connect with the organisational leadership team, we will continue to be frustrated, and we will fall short of our full potential. Join Tony Myers and Jan Kroupa, consultants working on two continents helping fundraisers transition from fundraising to fundraising leadership.
