A free event that made me cash money - brandsoap!


Oh everyone wants it.

But who spends time learning and refining the skills, tech
niques and mechanics?

I seek this knowledge out from lawyers, financiers, sales reps and marketing people that go to formal learning sessions. Even then it's not science and is hit-and-miss.

Who the heck is qualified to teach the SCIENCE of influence?

Her name is Jill Donahue and she does this through .....

I went to a session before work today.
It was engaging, sharp, short
and I walked away with cold hard cash in my pocket.

I don't like the term "golden nug
gets" or "kernels of thought" or "pearls of wisdom".

I work in non-profit. We're understaffed, under resourced and we won't make any time for professional development outside very practical job knowledge.

So when I make time to attend an "education session" - sorry- but you need to help me make money. I do so much more as part of my work but in the end it's what I do. I facilitate cash that ensures vital work can continue.

Today, Jill made me money.

There were no "reminders" here, this was new knowledge expertly informed in a format that was engaging, quick to digest but easy to remember.

For those in the technical charitable giving sector, we are concerned with undue influence,
capacity issues, conflicts of interest and the perception of impropriety.

Jill's session is called "How to Ethically Influence Behavioural Change". She has served physicians and pharma - the most regulated professionals around.

Hold on to your


My contact was a dynamic team member of this firm: Christie Chuakay.

They invited me down to the MARS of non-profit, the Centre for Social
Innovation. It was a truly well planned networking opportunity. It was a fascinating but viciously practical presentation. It was fun and will help me in work and life.

Thinkhouse, I owe you.

In an age where every marketing firm is
doing this.
You stood out.

Peers - get ready for "Brandsoap II" the revenge.

Jill - w
hy aren't you speaking to fundraisers and gift planners?!

In the mean time if you haven't picked this fun read up - Jill recommends it and I read it right after it came out and enjoyed it as much too.
