I’m involved in a lot of charities. I also work for one. So when I’m volunteering on a committee for an event and the rest of the committee, who are all really green, doesn’t want to listen to me it really frustrates me.
Don’t listen to the professional fundraiser and event manager? That makes sense.
My tip to you from all of this is, if you’re being offered advice by someone who’s done it before, and does it for a living, listen to them, I think in the end your life will be easier.
