Description: Welcome, rebels! Are you mired in best practices? Beware! Our so-called best practices are doing real and increasing damage. Blind reliance on myth and tribal wisdom harms results. Too often, our field—including our conferences—suffers from jargon-filled bull. Too many folks continue to mouth and repeat the same old, same old. If we’re so damn smart and talented, why are we losing donors, standing still, or in many cases, declining? Because too few of us challenge the status quo. What’s the greatest risk to the future of our beloved sector? We don’t challenge enough. We don’t demand, follow, and apply research. We don’t question past and current great fundraisers and authors. We seem to fear where no person has gone before. But not at this session! It’s past time to challenge. Bring your rebel mindset and let’s make change, now!
