It can be hard to find your chance to shine. If every conference wants experience, how do you get experience speaking at conferences? That’s why AFP Toronto began the Speaker Discovery Series (SDS). We want to give first time speakers an opportunity to receive coaching, mentorship, and constructive feedback.

No slideshows allowed. Just a story, a voice, and a little bravery.

This edition of the Speaker Discovery Series invites fundraisers to share their stories on the theme of…gratitude.

Featuring stories from:

  • Arielle Bennie – Development Associate, Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation
  • Allen Davidov – Director, Business Consulting, Environics Analytics
  • Lacey Kempinski, CFRE – Fundraising Specialist & Owner, Balanced Good
  • Renee Theberge – Development Program Assistant, International Justice Mission Canada
  • Janet Fairbridge, CFRE – Foundation Director, Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation
  • Melanie Pockaj, CFRE – Event Coordinator, Philanthropy, YMCA of Simcoe / Muskoka
  • Cherie Cohen – Founder, MiraclEggz

In today’s world, it is as important as ever that we stop and appreciate the positive things around us. And thankfully us fundraisers are in the business of gratitude…whether we’re deepening a donor relationship or building a culture of philanthropy, it is gratitude that’s at the core of everything we do. 

Join us in celebrating gratitude and first-time speakers on September 19!
