Would you like to present better to raise more money for your chosen charity?

Are you passionate about the cause of a charity but lack confidence doing presentations?

Do you miss opportunities to increase awareness of the charity and don’t raise as much money as you would like?

Julia's House

Julia’s House is an amazing local charity that offers emotional and practical support to families coping with a child with a life-threatening or life-limiting condition. This is offered at home, in the community and within the hospice. The charity relies on fundraising and the work of volunteers. I am therefore really looking forward to doing my bit as a volunteer, delivering part of our Simply Amazing Training programme on ‘taming your public speaking monkeys’ to a group of fundraisers at Julia’s House.

One of the things we will be doing is understanding and creating a Simply Amazing Structure (or SAS as we refer to it) they can use for any future presentations.

The key to successful planning is to remember that it is always all about the audience.

So, we will work together to ensure what they deliver engages the audience.

Some of our many tips to achieve this are:

  • In your mind, sit yourself in the audience and consider what would you want to think, feel and know after listening to the presentation?
  • Note these down, as many as you can. Remember if fundraising you will want to appeal to peoples’ emotions. They will then want to act on these emotions by contributing and understanding how what they give will make a real difference to the mission of the charity.
  • Then identify the three most important.
  • Ensure the presentation keeps these as the focus when you plan what to tell them, and what you will be asking them to do as a result of listening to you.

This planning and approach will have the subsequent outcome of raising more funds or increasing action for their cause.

Of course, the importance of the audience applies to every presentation. Is this your starting point when you plan one?

We offer this opportunity to a local charity a few times each year. If you would like to request that we run part of our programme for your fundraisers, can host the event and are in the Bournemouth area, please get in touch.
