Myth Smashers

Friday 25 Feb 2022 - 8:30 am to 9:15 am



Call for fresh faces for FIA Conference session


Building on the session’s success and popularity over the last five Conferences FIA is looking for the next ‘Myth Smashers!’ ready to take to the stage at the 2022 conference.


We’re on the hunt for a diverse group of fundraisers who have never spoken to a great big audience before, wanting to share their fundraising know how and experiences.


In conjunction with More Strategic and SOFII, Myth Smashers is a fast paced, dynamic session where up-and-coming stars present for six minutes only on the biggest myth they heard when they started in fundraising.

You must inspire the audience with your insights and the myth you’ll bust. Once everyone has presented we’ll be asking for the audience to vote on the best myth smashed.  The winner will receive a free registration to FIA Conference 2023, including the opportunity to host Myth Smashers themselves. The winner will also be asked to write up the case study to be published on the SOFII website. Check out our past Myth Smashers here


Those selected for this session will be mentored by one of our local fundraising experts – all of whom are experienced presenters themselves.



Please submit your idea in writing (no more than 100 words) to the 2022 Conference Program Committee via [email protected] by 19 November 2021.


We look forward to hearing your ideas!
