Prospect Research Training
 
For institutions that have a prospect researcher on staff, training in the tools and methodology is a must. Elaine Lotto has been training new and seasoned researchers in the art and science of research for over 20 years.

The training, done in the client’s office in small groups or one-on-one, is a comprehensive presentation of Internet sites and on-line databases that are used in prospect research. The hands-on, interactive and well-organized format shows researchers, and even development officers, how to effectively search for biographical, corporate, financial and philanthropic information about a prospect.

Development Research Systems clients often repeat the day-long prospect research training when a new researcher joins the staff. Other satisfied clients call on Elaine Lotto to train their new nonprofit staffs when they move to another job.
