Presenter: Sharron Batsch

Sharron’s  background with charities started in 1987 when she developed the first version of @EASE Fund Development Software  This donor database is sold across Canada supporting charities with donations of over $70,000,000 annually.

@EASE  has incorporated all forms of time saving methods in and it has been through our work with hundreds of fundraisers that we decided a book was necessary. It is our opinion that huge amounts of time is wasted, volumes of good information left unmanaged and that fundraisers need guidance when it comes to understanding information. When you work for a charity you are not in a glorified position, you get down and dirty with your resources and make them work for you.

She has also built many microcomputer custom systems for not for profits and taught at both SAIT and NAIT in their computer technology programs.

Sharron is an experienced presenter, and has developed 200 seminars and short courses and a certificate program related to microcomputers

She has chaired conferences, run workshops, and work on capital campaigns 

Sharron graduated with a  BSc in Math and Computing Science.

She began her computing career in the oil and gas business in Calgary applications and management for the U of Manitoba, Continuing Education
