Editor’s note: being ever so modest, we don’t like to blow our own trumpet at SOFII, especially as there are so many other folks to celebrate in the world of fundraising. However, Samuel Davies was so kind and so keen to talk about SOFII that we’re actually very pleased to share this interview. Thank you Samuel! 

In the interview, our contributing editor Joe Burnett shares with you the best SOFII has to offer, discusses our I Wish I’d Thought of That (IWITOT) events and gives an insider’s look at why we do what we do. This is a must listen not just for new followers and users of SOFII, but for our long time fundraising friends too.
