About the presenters:
Linda Lysakowski, ACFRE
A graduate of Alvernia University and AFP’s Faculty Training Academy, Linda is a Master Teacher. She is one of slightly more than one hundred professionals worldwide to hold the Advanced Certified Fund Raising Executive designation. In her thirty plus years in development, Linda has managed capital campaigns, helped hundreds of nonprofit organizations achieve their development goals, and trained more than 30,000 development professionals in Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, Egypt, and most of the fifty United States.
Ellen Bristol, president of Bristol Strategy Group, works with nonprofit organizations to improve the effectiveness of their fundraising efforts, increase total income and fund diversification, involve board and staff members more effectively, reduce turnover in the development office and maintain desired levels of quality and services.
A classic late-bloomer, Ellen spent the first twenty years of her business career selling mainframe computer systems. Only after she launched Bristol Strategy Group did she discover her true calling: adapting the principles of business-process management to nonprofit fundraising. Since that big “a-ha” moment, she has become a true performance-management geek and a nut for metrics.
