The Tax Guy who became the Psychology Guy!

Join us for our Winter Luncheon at the Poinsett Club in Greenville, SC for an informative and entertaining presentation, “The Tax Guy who became the Psychology Guy!” For the experienced professional, this presentation will (a) help you better prepare yourself to meet your clients/donors/prospects and (b) give you example phrases and practice in asking your clients/donors probing questions that help them decide what their legacy will be and how to leave a charitable legacy. For those new to planned giving, this presentation will help you (a) better prepare yourself to meet your clients/donors/prospects and (b) focus on what is most important in our field–listening to donors rather than selling them an idea.


Co-Presenters: Scott Sikes and Pete Ticconi from Columns Fundraising–a national nonprofit consulting firm based in Atlanta.
