  2. Definitely booked your seat for workshop and would be good to share with other participants as well your experiences.

  3. I would like to attend this workshop. I am a Fundraiser at the Community Chest and two colleagues attended the course and they were highly complimentary about it. I would like to acquire these skills as well as I know that it is an important tool for fundraising. Please let me know if this possible.

  5. Hi. I’ve started an npo that does leadership and life skills camps with primary and secondary schools. I think it’s important to reach more young people and what better way then through social networking tools. I’m very interested to see how your innovations can enhance our capacity to reach more kids in need.

  6. I am a PRO for an NGO, seeing that we all share a common purpose i think it is important that we empower ourselves together, especially when it comes to networking as well as using social media to achieve our organizational goals and reaching our target audiences. I do hope that I am not too late and would like to book a seat!

    Many thanks!
