“Using Neuroscience to Improve Your Fundraising Results”
Presented by:  Simone P. Joyaux, ACFRE, Adv Di

A working knowledge of recent neuroscience discoveries can help you raise more money. In fact, understanding consumer behavior can help you raise lots more money. This session explores some key principles that influence behavior – and how fundraisers can apply those principles to donors. Don’t worry! You don’t have to be a scientist to understand and use this stuff.
