In this episode, Janice Cunning and Margaret Katz Cann talk with Sue McCoy, Director of Major Gifts at Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation. Sue describes a challenge that exists for many directors in nonprofit organizations. It is the trifecta effect – the challenge of leading your team, working your own fundraising portfolio, and reporting up to the CEO.
Sue challenges listeners to use her gemstone idea to stay focused and move forward in all three areas everyday.
