Acting for Askers

If life is just a stage, then every one of us is an actor. Get ready to hone your craft and perfect the art of the ask with Ed’s program, Acting for AskersSM. We all find ourselves in asker mode virtually every day of our lives – whether it’s appealing to a donor or simply asking a coworker for help. It doesn’t matter if you’re focus is on large markets or small, connecting with donors to maximize the full potential of every meeting, presentation, event, or negotiation is always mission critical.

Ed teaches participants to listen and communicate more effectively. Become more relaxed, present, and persuasive through techniques used in classical theatre training. Sessions explore the similarities between the actor and asker, learning how to apply basic acting principles in daily work to inspire greater authenticity, interest, focus, imagination, and empathy while developing a more consistently successful ask.
