About Us

My name is Ryan Turner, and I am the founder of Business English for NGOs. For more than 25 years, I have worked with non-profit/non-governmental organizations and social enterprises in all aspects of strategic planning, program development, and fundraising.

As a social impact consultant, my primary goal is to empower client organizations towards stability and growth. This requires respect for each organization’s mission, values, stakeholders, and unique needs.

My background includes leadership, management, advocacy and volunteering across a wide range of issue areas.

Since 2015, I have focused primarily on philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, civil society and corporate social responsibility in Central Europe and Eastern Europe.

I am a proud native of Richmond, Virginia; an active alumnus of Princeton University; and a current resident of Prague, Czech Republic.
