“When I started as a nonprofit leader, I felt alone and frustrated because there was nowhere to turn for guidance and information. There were no mentors, no secret book of knowledge with helpful advice to properly manage the mountains of work that is required to operate a successful nonprofit. Now, after working with NPOs for over 20 years, I know my nonprofit experience can benefit more managers and executive directors. We provide insight, resources, and support so leaders grow personally and professionally in ways that will benefit the organizations they serve.” —Founder/CEO/Queen Bee, Melissa Lagowski.
The Big Buzz Breakfast Club offers monthly education on a variety of nonprofit topics such as sponsorship, communication, leadership, board development, culture, etc. On the second Thursday of each month, nonprofit professionals will come together for a webinar about a specific topic. These events are FREE to nonprofit professionals.
The Roundtables offer a deeper conversation around the monthly Breakfast Club theme. Nonprofit leaders will participate in small-group discussions (maximum group size is 10 participants) about nonprofit topics. These facilitated discussions will allow leaders of the nonprofit community to share ideas, struggles and best practices to make you a better leader. The Roundtable participation fee is $10 per session or $97 for the year.
For those nonprofit leaders who are looking for a confidential circle of colleagues to discuss challenges and seek advice for advanced development, the Mastermind opportunity is for you. These peer-to-peer discussion groups will bring the same small group (3—5 members) together each month for deeper dive discussions and accountability to your goals. Mastermind participation costs $1,497 per year and members of the Masterminds are able to participate in the Breakfast Club and the Roundtables at no additional cost.
If you are a nonprofit professional in need of personal coaching and consultation, then the Power Up Consultation program is available to you. These 60-minute mentorship sessions provide individualized assistance for effective customized growth. Individual sessions are available for $250 each, or you can secure a one-year membership for $2,397 which also allows for participation in the Breakfast Club and the Roundtables at no additional cost.
