Sharing thoughts & experiences

Five Minutes to Reflect

on May 7, 2011

Between all my prep work, meetings & lectures; I’m taking a few minutes to reflect and look back over the last few months…

Today marks the start of my fourth year working at Future Fundraising, as well as working in the sector. This is a milestone for me, and one that I chose to celebrate with the office crew yesterday evening. Looking around the table and thinking back to the beginning of this year, we have come through a lot and have a number of achievements we should be celebrating.

This has been one of the busiest years of my life so far; with one meeting, project, conference, lecture after another – it’s so easy to not recognise the achievements & take some time to enjoy them. After chatting with @annarwalsh and @TeriDoubtfire this week, I’m much more aware of the need to celebrate these moments in time. It is so easy to move onto the next task/challenge once one is completed, without acknowledging the amount of work that had gone into making it happen and what the outcome of this was. We are working with charities, our project outcomes are rather AMAZING and help to change lives across the world – this is something to be proud of & shout from the roof tops.

So, I would like to share a bit of our internal “roof top shouting” with you now! In the last several months of 2011 we have achieved the following:

Doubling our client list, restructuring & expanding our call centre, a number of new campaigns and more than doubling our donor volume – the future seems bright, with a few more new & unique projects still being worked on behind the scenes. There is no risk of us becoming complacent this year, we have several aspirations we plan on achieving. Our team is more enthusiastic than ever before, dynamic and determined to see 2011 being the year of great success!

All I can say is that 2011 is our year, and with the number of amazing charities we are working with, I can’t wait to celebrate future achievements with them to!
