How to Ask for What You Want – Without Being a Pushy Pest (with Maryanne Dersch)
Can you imagine asking for anything, including money, with ease and confidence? How great would it be to have a community excited to donate so you can thrive in any circumstance? Maryanne Dersch helps nonprofit leaders master the art of influence so they can ask for and receive all they want, need, and deserve without feeling rejected, ineffective, or pushy.
She spent thirty years helping nonprofit organizations communicate more effectively. From those experiences, she authored Courageous Communication: Why Codependence is Making Your Nonprofit Brand Boring and What To Do About It. She hosts The Influential Nonprofit podcast and the annual Donor Attraction Forum virtual event.
She’s known for her love of ultrahigh heels, extra-large Diet Cokes, and short karaoke rotations.
