When it comes to giving that matters and making lasting impact, what stands in our way? Common delusions such as avoiding uncertainty, second-guessing, holding back, and operating from a scarcity perspective often hinder the efficiency and effectiveness of philanthropy — just when the world needs it the most.

Join us as global philanthropy expert and author of Delusional Altruism, Kris Putnam-Walkerly provides real-world advice and practical guidance to help philanthropists avoid common delusional thoughts and practices that prevent them from achieving transformational social change.

During this interactive session, in addition to helping participants uncover self-limiting fallacies and how they may be manifesting in your giving efforts, Kris will share proven strategies to avoid and overcome these pitfalls to realize your goal for impactful, sustainable change.
