As a follow-up to our session “How to ask for money without throwing up”, we’ll test that premise by reviewing best practice on the how to ask, and progress to the why. As we’re in pub, this is the perfect opportunity to practice through doing. We’ll first review techniques for asking by phone, then progress to that often-stomach-churning face-to-face scenario in pairs, and for a few hearty souls, in front of the group. This pre-mingler session is a perfect opportunity to practice your ask and experience being on ‘the other side’. You can apply your personal experience from this session to gain comfort in the process then train your colleagues and volunteers.
