One of the outstanding sessions at this year’s Fundraising Convention from the Institute of Fundraising was the Rising Stars session.
New to Convention, this session featured nine fundraisers from across the sector speaking at the event for the very first time. Those selected from a range of applicants for the session were all supported before the event in presenting and speaking in public by some experienced fundraisers.
In the opening slot, Russell Benson, Community & Events Manager at MS Society, spoke about the importance of individual storytelling.
The Rising Stars session took place in the Barbican Concert Hall in London, a daunting venue for these fundraisers’ first experience of a conference presentation.
We’ll present each of the Rising Stars sessions over the next week or so, to demonstrate that the fundraising sector has some very thoughtful, able and driven future leaders.
