In this free webinar, our colleague Peter Bromberg will take a deep-dive into the political, emotional, and interpersonal sides of talking about your funding and budget to motivate your board, staff, and elected officials.
As director of the Salt Lake City Public Library, Peter moved a historic 23.3% budget increase through city council in 2017.”While we all believed that a request of this magnitude was warranted and defensible,” In this webinar you will learn the 5 ingredients to his “recipe” for passing:
- Diagnosing the funding needs;
- Learning the political landscape and building relationships;
- Determining what is politically possible;
- Developing and delivering an effective message;
- Activating your network of support.
