    Speaker Discover Series | Fall 2021 Edition

    Speaker Discover Series | Fall 2021 Edition

    The past 18 months have been a lot and so many changes to our personal and professional lives happened during this time. This year, the Speaker Discovery Series was held virtually, under the theme, Metamorphosis. Each speaker gave us the gift of their own experiences on this topic, from how "situations" caused them to reinvent their role to how they did it. Our speakers also did not shy away from getting personal with how they redefined their purpose and why it was necessary, now more than ever.

    The Fabric of Fundraising - Episode 4

    The Fabric of Fundraising - Episode 4

    From its inception 25 years ago, the AFP Greater Toronto Chapter's Fundraising Day has offered delegates a top return on investment. Fundraising Day provides a one-day opportunity to network with the sectors most sought-after professionals and to learn from Canada's top educators about the unique challenges and opportunities within the realm of fundraising and development.


    Though the fundraising profession has evolved considerably over the years, so many principles of fundraising remain the same. In 2019, on the conference's 25th anniversary, the Chapter celebrated "The Fabric of Fundraising" - a day of best practices, old ideas that have become new again, and the simplest approaches that drive the best donor experiences – and the best results.


    Hosted by 2019 Fundraising Day Chair, Maeve Strathy, these special episodes were recorded live at Fundraising Day.


    In this episode, Farrah Rooney and Chris Carter of Candela Strategies join us for Ignite Their Passion! The Resurgence of Values-Based Marketing.


    Picture it: a divisive election resulting in starkly drawn cultural and political lines, during which a cola behemoth makes a commercial showing us how they can make it all better. Sounds familiar? It happened in the 70s with Coke's wildly successful The Hilltop campaign, and last year with another cola company's not-so-successful ad. In 2018 we saw the viral breakthrough of the Colin Kaepernick Nike ad, which struck through our cultural clutter like a lightning bolt. We remember them, don't we? Brands are clamouring to take advantage of values-based marketing that triggers strong emotions. In this session, Farrah and Chris demonstrate how non-profits can use a similar campaign strategy to be memorable, engage new supporters and build a relationship with their donor base for years to come.

    In this episode, Seanna Millar and Adam Starkman of SickKids Foundation join us for Building Purpose-Driven Brand Partnerships: The Evolution of Corporate Engagement. 


    In this session, Seanna and Adam discuss how companies and brands continue to focus on the role that they play within society, and the value that doing good has on their business. They share insights on how customers and employees expect companies to be doing more and how corporate social responsibility (CSR) is being elevated to a new level - with many companies going to great lengths to define their purpose and communicate it broadly as a way of attracting talent and differentiating themselves in the market. They discuss how charities and not-for-profits can play an important role in this evolution so long as they are able to authentically align on purpose, and demonstrate meaningful impact to partners.

    In this episode, Nicole Malcolm joins us for In the Moment: Improv Skills for Fundraising Professionals.


    In this session, participants added new tools to their fundraising tool-belt by learning some tricks, techniques, and truths from the world of improvisation. In meetings with donors, fundraisers need to be active listeners who are agile and able to turn on a dime as needs change or when the meeting starts to go in a different direction. Participants practiced improv warm-up activities to get them and their teams in the collaborative mindset for a meeting. Together the group learned how to better “be in the moment” and keep their cool, even though some were sweating on the inside. Part of this presentation was interactive and “on your feet” - getting participants to think differently about the way they approach their work.
