Ambassador Package Program- by Mr Charles Burke

During this program, attendees will learn how to identify what they should be communicating to potential donors and how to generate the tools that will be used in the process. They will also learn how to easily create a professional sales display that anyone can use to sell their organization at Events, Conventions or other Locations where large groups of people will be in attendance having the ability to DONATE!

The power that resides within an organization’s membership to help generate funding is often predicated on the assumption that everyone is a good salesperson...... and this simply is not true. Just think, what if you could quickly turn almost everyone into an effective communicator complete with all of the tools needed to bring in donations?

The Ambassador package is a 2 hour program you can learn how to empower almost all of your staff, turning them into the best salesforce that they can be. Even the person who is very shy will find it much easier to communicate to others, including large groups. See details below.  (Location to be determined based on number of attendees for individual request).
