Prospect Research: A View from the Frontline
Jason Creque, Associate Director of Development – UC Irvine

Why Do Our Charts Suck & What to Do About it?
Ashutosh Nandeshwar, AVP-Relationship Management – USC

Presenting data should be simple, yet we fail at communicating simply.  30-minutes go by and you’re still trying to understand the objective of a chart, which is masked by 3-D objects, exploding slices, and extensive color schemes. This session will teach you how to avoid common mistakes and make your charts informative and actionable.  

2:15 pm – 3:00 pm   MIXER

A networking opportunity to get to know your fellow researchers, interact with colleagues, and discuss current trends in research, prospect management, strategies, fundraising, and any other areas of interest.
