Tim Bucher, Director Philanthropic Services Division, BWF
What piece of advice would you give to yourself at the beginning of your career?
I have considered myself as a jack of all trades for most of my career which has its benefits. I would tell myself to own your jack of all trades moniker but carve out enough space to become an expert in a specific area.
What's the best career advice you've ever received?
Never bring your boss a dead possum without the shovel. OK, that may be a little morbid but it was memorable. BTW – he actually used “cat” but there are way too many cat lovers in the prospect research field, so I am taking the liberty to make that change. Apologies to possum lovers.
What could you give a 40-minute presentation on with absolutely no preparation?
Leveraging your CRM to automate moves management and donor journeys.
