Business English for NGOS provides fundraising, program development, strategy planning, and English-language communications skills training for social impact organizations.
Clients include non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), non-profit organizations (NPOs), social enterprises, foundations, philanthropies, charities, associations, community groups, social businesses, cooperatives, and public benefit organizations.
Whether it is a one-time consultation or longer-term relationship, we enjoy building support for social impact organizations at every stage of their development.
Fundraising, development, and strategy planning are an investment of time, energy, and resources to improve an organization’s position. All investments involve some degree of risk and uncertainty. Good consultants cannot — and should not — guarantee successful results every time. This is especially true before a consultant meets with a client to understand their needs, their concerns, and their challenges.
Good nonprofit development and strategy consultants bring their experience, perspectives, and skills to ensure clients are able to utilize proven tools and methods that have delivered effective results in previous contexts. Good consultants also use lessons learned from past failues to help clients avoid mistakes towards better outcomes.
Sometimes we are not the right choice for a client. In these instances, we are happy to suggest or recommend other options from other providers which are more appropriate.
Throughout all our work, we are honest and open with our clients about what we can do for them; what we cannot do for them; and what is necessary to reach their desired outcomes.
Each client is unique in their service needs. Before we begin any work, we talk with clients to identify what is expected and their desired time frames. We then determine options that will fit within their budget requirements.
