Seminars

At Mitchell Wiggins, we believe in education for the community. We host a semi-annual seminar series for our clients and others in the community led by prominent speakers on relevant topics. These seminars are well attended and generate much discussion and idea sharing among the participants.

Join us for the Fall 2017 Seminar Series:

November 28, 2017 Nonprofit Lunch and Learn: Keys to Development Team Retention “15 Years to Life” Featuring Bobby Thalhimer & Lisa Pratt O’Mara [Details & RSVP]

In the nonprofit development field many consider 3 years’ commitment to a job to be a success. We don’t believe it. This session is about how to create, motivate and grow a development team in a learning environment where team members remain challenged and rewarded. Great development at its root is about relationship-building. We will talk about how to build meaningful productive relationships with donors and with team-mates, and how to nurture all of these relationships in a learning environment. For nonprofits, long-term success depends upon a successful hand-off of relationships as staff members eventually retire or move on, and we will talk about how to pass the baton successfully.
