Samantha Sayward - Senior Walk Director, the Alzheimer's Association: Networking & Communicating Hope

View descriptionShare

Allocating corporate funds to causes can be critical for many nonprofit organizations. This week Samantha Sayward explains how an organization’s investment in nonprofit research can impact the financial future of any organization. Listen in as Laura and Samantha discuss how to share the impact of participating in a solution, being accountable for your actions as a leader, and how the Alzheimer’s Association navigates the complex relationships between stakeholders


Here are a few things you’ll learn during this conversation:

  • The difference between transformational and transactional relationships
  • How to listen to and receive critical feedback
  • Why leaders should be open and transparent when making decisions
  • How to be respected as a person and not as a title
  • Navigating the transition from military to corporate leadership


During the 24-Hour Influence Challenge, Samantha encourages you to be open to feedback by asking your team three questions: what would you like me to do more of? What would you like me to do less of? What would you like me to do differently?


Samantha Sayward is the Senior Walk Director for the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter. Samantha has worked in the non-profit industry for over 6 years- with her primary role being in development. Samantha became aware of the Alzheimer's Association when her grandmother was diagnosed with Dementia in 2016. She participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer's - the Alzheimer's Association flagship event and has been walking ever since. Prior to her work at the Alzheimer's Association and other non-profits, Samantha served in the U.S. Navy for 5 1/2 years as a Hospital Corpsman (CORE-MAN).
