September Webinar: Corporations and What They Want in Today's World of Employee Engagement
Presenter: Rachel Hutchisson & Andrew J. Troup
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 // 12:00 - 1:30pm
Tulsa Area United Way

"I haven't met you before, but how about a million dollars?" An outrageous ask, right? And perhaps a bit of an exaggeration. But why do fundraisers, who approach major donors so carefully feel it's ok to zing asks like this on potential corporate partners? Approaching companies effectively means understanding what they value and what they want and need, just like that major donor you're cultivating. In this session, you'll hear insights from a Corporate Social Responsibility professional who is on the receiving end of asks and, moreso, what companies value in today's competitive work world. With this insight, you'll be better equipped to approach potential partners to work with your organization in new ways (hint: it's not just about the money).
