“I found the format of practitioner and consultant very impressive as they were able to cover all the aspects of fundraising. The insights gained in such a short period of time have made my journey into fundraising more effective. I feel like I have saved myself years of hard work by gaining the presenter’s expertise and IP, which was shared so generously with us all. Even though the information at times was very advanced from where I am now, I could see more clearly where I needed to head to elevate my own practice as a fundraising professional.”

“The Advancement Practitioner Training – Fundraising course is a great eye opener to understanding the culture of philanthropy, what it takes to run a campaign and how to look after major donors. Whether you are hands-on responsible for fundraising or supporting those that are, this course should be done by all Principals and Board Members.”
