Ambassador Training: Better Word-of-Mouth Marketing

Oct. 16, 2020, 1pm-2:30pm ET


Even in the era of social media, the most effective marketing strategy is word of mouth. Regardless of your role – board, staff or volunteer – you can represent your organization more effectively and generate positive buzz. Learn how to engage potential supporters, develop compelling messages, and deliver them effectively. 

In this session, we will cover:

  • Listening: The most valuable communications skill
  • Shaping your message
  • Pitching your organization one on one
  • Public speaking without fear (well, with less fear)
This will be an interactive webinar so come prepared to share and connect with others!

Intended Audience
Nonprofit board members, staff and volunteers.
