Team Leaders and dating, really... yes really

  1. 1. My Profile I hail from Baltimore and I'm huge Ravens fan. You could probably say I'm football obsessed. Besides football, I'm enjoying life in DC. Here are some random things about myself. • I’m a fundraiser, I work at Blackbaud and help non-profit organizations increase revenue • My glass is always half full. I'm an eternal optimist. • I'm always up for a road trip, Graceland is awesome, it should on everyone's must visit list. Next stop Dollywood. • My sport of choice is running. I don't plan on winning any races soon, but it's a good way to stay active. Plus, after completing a long-distance race, you get a medal. I'm in it for the medal! • I prefer Miller Lite to Bud Light. Yes, I think there's a difference! • I love my blog…

  10. 10. Rule 2b: Are they into you? • What did they do when they signed up? – Did they say “YES” – I will fundraise to fight Arthritis! – Did they create their own fundraising goal? – Did they make an additional donation? • What does it mean when they answer these questions?

  21. 21. Rule 5: Ask them out again • Challenge: Very few team captains attend our Kick Off. • How do you over come this? Refer to Rule 4: attend their events • Continue to invite them to events; don’t cross them off your list: – They may not be able to commit at the moment, but will appreciate the invite
  22. 22. Rule 6: Always say thank you • Stand out by going old school: – Send a card – Make a phone call – Host a thank you party • Showcase your participants on your event site – It’s a way to recognize their hard work and inspire others • What are you doing to say thank you?
