Brian Saber is President of Asking Matters, a web-based company that trains people how to ask for money and motivates them to do it! From his early days as a student leader and telethon caller (!) to his six years in charge of major and principal gifts throughout the Midwest for Brandeis University, to his two stints as an executive director, every position involved significant face-to-face solicitation. Brian harnessed all that frontline experience to become a sought-after trainer, coach, and consultant around the country and abroad.
