Nonprofit Development Center – Coffee with Consultants
Feb 19 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

 

Coffee with Consultants

$3,000 Value for $149!

 

  

It's a new year.

Are you ready for new ideas to make your organization the best it can be?

Are you willing to put in some serious work to make it happen?

If so, Coffee with Consultants is just what you need.

 

Two Sessions:

Leading Change – Getting in Front of It

and

Raising $: It's All about the Donor

 

These coaching sessions, led by professional consultants, provide deeper work on key areas of managing a nonprofit.  The consultant's expertise combined with the experiences of other professionals facing similar challenges creates an energizing team learning environment.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Each group will meet four times for two hours each time.  Groups will be small, so that the consultant can meet the needs of each participant.  In addition, each participant may have individualized phone consultations with the session leader between sessions if needed. 

 

COST AND COMMITMENT:

The early registration rate for either series of sessions and access to the consultant between sessions is only $149.  The value of the consulting you will receive is at least $3,000 if you were to contract directly with the consultant.   However, the Nonprofit Development Center has found support for this program through foundations, thus drastically reducing your costs. Commitment to attending the sessions is important to the dynamics of the group and your own learning process.

RAISING $:  IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DONOR!
