Ellen Bristol

Ellen Bristol calls herself a geek for metrics and a nut for performance
management. She comes to the nonprofit sector after a 20-year
career selling multi-million dollar mainframe computer systems to
huge businesses. Shortly after launching Bristol Strategy, Ellen fell
madly in love with the nonprofit sector. She soon realized that her sales background gave her unique insights into the challenges faced by nonprofits. Unlike sales organizations, she observed, too many nonprofits bet the farm on tactics like events, auctions, and giving days, without putting a strategic foundation in place.

Ellen’s mission is to adapt the methods of high-performing sales teams to work for nonprofit fundraising departments, while maintaining the charitable heart and philanthropic soul of the sector. She has published three books on fundraising management and strategic planning, and is a sought-after speaker.
