“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 (maximum group size—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.
Why We Are Launching These New Programs
Big Buzz Idea Group is stepping up to satisfy the need to help more nonprofits than ever before. We know that many organizations have been struggling this year, so we are ramping up our offerings in an effort to provide nonprofit leaders the knowledge and information they need to survive and thrive for 2020 and beyond!
We are very aware that this is not a one-size-fits-all solution, which is why we offer opportunities for support at various levels. We make it easy for members of the industry to have access to knowledge by offering services at a variety of price points. Each level of this program offers the ability for everyone to leave each session wiser than you entered. And we are currently working to build out more benefits and to make checklists, white papers and past videos available to members to ensure that the participation value in these programs will continue to grow.
