Holding Your Team Together in Difficult Times

Includes a Live Event on 11/05/2020 at 12:00 PM (EST)


As educational institutions continue to adjust to the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, advancement teams are under increasing pressure to raise funds despite budget cuts, layoffs, and the need to work and engage prospects virtually. In the face of these challenges, departmental managers and organizational leaders must find ways to lift their teams up, keep them focused, and support them through personal and professional difficulties and the likelihood of a prolonged economic recession. To explore this issue, Dan Allenby will lead a discussion with industry leaders in Strategic Talent Management: Amy Bronson (Boston University), Yvette Marsh (LSU Foundation), and Josh Wyatt (University of Arizona).
