Today is International Podcast Day, so it is the perfect opportunity to find out which podcasts fundraisers find useful and would recommend.
We asked fundraisers for their suggestions, hoping for some of the established podcast names but also for some new resources, perhaps not even specifically targeted at fundraisers.
Here are the podcasts that were recommended.
1. Leadership Worth Sharing
ACEVO’s Leadership Worth Sharing podcast “champions the dedication, professionalism, quality and expertise of civil society leaders and the role and impact they and their organisations have in public life.” The podcast is in interview format, with ACEVO CEO Vicky Browning talking with guests who sharing their personal leadership experiences and talk about what leadership means to them.
