Ep8 - Discussing 3rd Party Data Appends with Ryan Woroniecki of DonorSearch
I sat down to speak with Ryan Woroniecki, VP of Strategic Partnerships at DonorSearch.  We spoke about the considerable fundraising value of getting 3rd party prospect research data appended to an organization's donor records.  I've used DonorSearch in the past to help US clients of mine, and was definitely impressed with how useful it's been, not only based on the info it provides, but with the opportunities that it opens up for data science products I've been able to build with it. If you've ever been curious to learn more about what it means to incorporate 3rd party prospect research data into your fundraising, have a listen!  Once you're done, feel free to learn more about Donorsearch by clicking here.

Ep7 - Discussing lvls of non-profit data sophistication w Celeste Bannon Waterman, Partner of Research & Analytics @ KCI
In this episode, I spoke with Celeste Bannon Waterman, Partner/Lead of Research & Analytics at KCI.  The topic was a document she sent me that details the 4 stages a non-profit can go through as it becomes more and more sophisticated in terms of data infrastructure, analytics, and data science.  I found the conversation to be very philosophical, interesting, and enlightening.  Then again, I'm probably biased because she was my old boss when I worked at KCI! Have a look below for a link to the document, called the "Data Platform". https://kciphilanthropy.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/The-Ask-Additional-Content-Episode-7-Data-platform-visual.pdf

Ep4 - Talking about Donor CRMs with Dave Saraiva
In this episode I had the honour of speaking with my friend Dave Saraiva, of Lifeline Design, about the CRM his company created.  It's an illuminating look at the inner workings of non-profits, and how they can be vastly improved, or adversely affected depending on their experience with this very key software that manages their own donor data. If you're interested in learning more about his CRM, DonorEngine, see here.
